About

Ha! This is all really old and kinda weird. If you’re reading this – you’ve probably already know who I am. But if not, you can read ALL about my old lives in this blog. It’s really not that interesting. This has become more a music sharing/journal of thoughts/time capsule than anything. Enjoy?
Disclaimer: If you know me IRL, then the possibility of you appearing in this blog is likely. Deal with it.  My thoughts are my own and not representative of any other party. 

 

Good Morning Internet! Here’s a re-copy of my first post  that has all my info!

I suppose it’s about time that I got on board the train that has long left the station, thus I created a blog. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, just to get some stuff out and down in words, also to let all you know about my life and how it’s going! I suppose…

Well, I guess I should start with introducing myself, I am a university student attending the University of Victoria undergoing a combined degree in Music and Computer Science. Yes, it is a weird combination I know. But you probably can’t think of all the ways that the two fields actually cohiesively combine.

The following is the description given by the University Of Victoria: “The combined degree program in Music and Computer Science is for those who intend to work with both music and technology. The disciplines of Music and Computer Science have a natural affinity. The history of music over the last half century has been very largely a history of its attempts to take in and adapt the new possibilities afforded by technological innovation. A lot of live music performance involves computer technology, ranging from sound synthesizers and samplers to 3-dimensional controllers for manipulating sound. Computers are used to create digital audio (recorded and computer-generated) which is used for musical activities such producing music recordings, music for film and music for video games, and delivering this music in the form of CDs, DVDs, internet broadcasts and MP3 files for download. “

Just in case you were curious.

So that’s what I’m taking in school. But there has to be more than just school!

Well, as a musician, I am in the process of learning as many instruments as possible. Currently I am taking on guitar and slowly learning my way about it. Last year I produced an album called “The Leap Year” which was a combined disc with Steve Wirzba, a friend of mine from school (See link at end of post for his music). This summer I am working on my own solo EP from the humble lodgings of my residence room. “Cluster” should be expected in September and will have between 6 and 7 songs on it. Which is a lofty goal for me.

I am a big lover of photography and thus I try and take a lot of pictures. I have begun to dwelve back into the film realm and I am really enjoying the results. This is partially because I let my brother borrow my D-SLR, but that’s beyond the point. In the future I will do my best to post some of my photos.

So that’s basically a quick wrap up, which brings us to the here and now. It’s 5:45 am as I am writing this. You may ask yourselves why it is that I am up so early. Well, I shall explain.

But in order to do that you need some more background knowledge.
My wonderful girlfriend just returned home from her family vacation to their cabin on the lake. It was a joyful reunion that I am sure none of you really want to hear about, but that’s besides the point. She is home now, and I stayed over at her place last evening. And unfortulately, switching beds does not go over to well for my body. So alas I am up.

I think this is really all for now. I’m going to do my best to post often and with some interesting stuff for you to watch, read and listen to!

Later Days,
J.
