I have an enclosed vocal booth in my studio and an assortment of microphones including tube and ribbon, many guitars, amps, and effects, a piano and a Fender Rhodes and a few synthesizers including a Nord Lead and a Nord Electro 2. Although I can play my vintage Pearl drum set I also frequently use BFD2 to program the drums. Another prize I should mention since I am blatantly name dropping for SEO, is a vintage tape echo, the Roland Chorus Echo.
My studio is a corner unit with tall ceilings that provide rich, natural acoustics and a great view of downtown Los Angeles from the giant windows. I call my studio the House of Mingus and it has certainly inspired some great music.
Television commercial for an online retail store, the producer wanted it to sound like Kruder & Dorfmeister, so that’s what Ernest Jow, my partner at the time, and I gave them! I also got to use a hand drum I brought home from a trip Vietnam!
I produced a 10 song album for The Tragic Clowns. I am especially proud of the rich percussion we achieved by drum programming with BFD2 and use of my vast collection of hand drums and odd string instruments.
