8-15-2018 It's been ages since I put any music up on this page, LOL ..... so I decided to stick a few recent recordings I've done. These are simple stereo recordings I did inside the Pearl Mimic Pro sound module using the internal recorder. I ran an audio cable from my Mp3 player to the Aux. In of the Mimic and simply played internal kit sounds on my Stealth Pearl Crystal Beat Kit with the drumless tunes. I have been really enjoying the VEX kit packs for the Pearl Mimic sound module and am using various kits from that in the module. Thanks for taking your time to browse my site, I'll try to add songs and stuff more frequently instead of once every 7-10 years .... LOL , J
These are songs in some stage of On-Line Collaboration..... Infant Stage, Finished and In Between... I update the songs as new ones come along and I get around to it, so look for much more content in the future.
DANCE OF THE ROCK FARIES Here's one that strikes my fancy. The start of a modern remake of a Classic.... Stephen R .... Keys, Jman....Drums
Make Believe This is a cover song. I normally don't bother doing covers, but when I listened to Nitch's guitar in the bed track I was impressed. Having never heard the original song, I took a quick listen and then did my own thing. Nitch on vocals and guitar. Kenny on bass and keyboard. These guys really rocked it, thought I would cut loose on the drums instead of doing a lame imitation of the original drummer!
Young and Keen This one is by Scott Le Rock on Guitars, Sibly on Vocals, Clark Griswold on Bass, and me on drums....
Frozen Heart Another MCS collaboration with the excellent vocals of Ali Kat. Argile Mixed this one. Forgive me for forgetting all the players. I found it on my hard drive and will update the credits when I look into it.
I Can't Change How I feel MCS collab from Stoman with Erroll Chug on vocs, R4M Guitars, Stoman keys. This was a heavy rock mix by an outsider. Not the accepted final mix .... but hey, I liked it. LOL
Silent Retreat This was just an audition, not sure if we ever completed it. Stoman's song with Holger's excellent vocs.
Nothing Ever Changes Another MCS collaboration with Casia(lyricist), Detune, Stoman, Docca3, Jman(me), and canuk62 ... This original has a little bit of "the Doors" feel to it, another one of my recent favorites. Sept 09.

MY Pain Well My Pain split off and became 2 songs... My Pain...this version.. and Left Alone... which is using some of the original ideas from the earlier version of My Pain..... This is Curtis' Final Mix on this.
Rainbow This one still needs the final mix. It's a good example of ideas growing, and changing in the development of songs. Curtis' song/Vox, Jerm early arrangement and backing vox, Edmon lead and rhythm guits, backing vox, AbbeyRoad Bass guit, me on the Vdrums.
Rainbow Revisted Cutis' final mix.

Thanks to all the mix masters for the time and effort on this one.... It really shows the beauty of collaboration on line.
