Around the year 1997 I graduated from my awkward ’90s electronica phase and started producing truly polished, professional sounding dance music.
They say that anything worth doing is worth doing badly. This has been 100% true for my efforts in electronic music.
Here are some highlights from my wobblier days as a dance music producer, from about 1993 to 1997. (Back then I was recording under the name Wix.)
Eve: “Yasmine. She’s Lebanese. I’m sure she’ll be very famous.”
Adam: “God, I hope not. She’s way too good for that.”
An elite indifference lurks at the heart of Only Lovers Left Alive (2013), Jim Jarmusch’s anti-love story between an unlikely pair of ancient vampires Adam and Eve, played by a criminally underfed Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton.
Here’s a blast from the past. Sometime in the late ’80s, while still figuring out how to sync up my MIDI studio, a friend and I made an amazing discovery: we could use a drum machine to drive the synthesizers!
Say hello to my synthpop side-project Orbr! With a maiden voyage like Cassena Lander, things are only looking up for this scrappy little space explorer.
Check out this cool, mossy-covered bench we stumbled upon this weekend at the Hidden Falls Regional Park in St. Paul.
