Mute Math in the UK: 8/2007

The song used in this video is called "Maquinismo." It is an old track I made for a friend's short film called "There is No Heroin in Heaven." I don't think the film has ever been finished.

First Rehearsals for New Tour

We started rehearsals for the new tour yesterday, and I'm very excited. I think we are stepping it up even more on this tour, with new production, new venues, and a few new songs. There is still a lot of work to be done, but we are confident that we can accomplish what needs to be taken care of before we leave for England.

Yesterday, tackled a new song together. It was the same usual emotional roller coaster that we each go through while writing new material. It just so close and personal that certain things can get touchy; however, we know better than to let it get to us. Well, hopefully, we do.

In the studio and not . . .

While in the studio with Paul and Darren the other day, I took some video of Darren playing drums. It's super low quality, but whatever, it has its own charm.

Later on, when watching it back, I decided to experiment with some editing, of which I'm still very much a novice. Plus, it's more difficult when you don't have the right tools. Nevertheless, here's my first attempt at trying to chop up a video like a vinyl record with a sampler.

By the way to answer some questions, namely "When does the new record come out?" Honestly, I don't know, but I wish I did. Just keep up-to-date with this blog and I'll keep you posted of the latest developments. Thanks.

In the studio with Mute Math

Today, we got together to work on some new material. I'm really stoked about the new song ideas, and I can't wait to release the new record. I know it's been a long time coming for many Mute Math fans, but believe that we are just as anxious to have another album. We've been playing a lot of these same songs for years now. Thanks for all your patience in waiting for this new material, which by the way will be heard on this new fall tour.

Check it out: no computers here, just a monitor for the Roland! At the core, ASR-10 and a 4-track, vato!

Focusing In More

In thinking about the future and the direction of things, I decided that now is the time to focus in on particular topics, and to begin compartmentalize things. So, in order to do so, I created several new blogs with pinpoint content.

The first of the blogs is a blog or bloga dedicated to Latino Fiction, in which submissions from writers will be posted and shared. I hope that a community can develop to further this niche of literature. Below is the link to the new bloga.

Latino Fiction: Short Stories, Poems, Flash Fiction, Novellas

Second, I have started a blog on dogs. It's more about "dog-spotting." Since I travel so much, I get to see a lot of beautiful canines, and I want to feature them in this site. I've started with a little story about the one who got me hooked on such creatures. Check it out:

I Look For Dogs All Day

Third, I will create another focusing on Mute Math Tours, specifically dedicated to only one tour per blog. I hope to incorporate more content from others (such as fan reviews and comments, independent journalism, fan videos, MM video blogs, etc.) A link is soon to come.

This blog, my main blog, will continue to focus on bass and bass lessons, and in particular, anything technically associated with playing in Mute Math.

Thanks for reading and please feel free to ask questions and leave suggestions.

I'll leave you with another performance piece. Lessons will be soon to follow:
