Big Sound from Studio B? Wind tunnel

loose tracks on soundcloud. Some experiments for reverb plugins and such

funk phase from late 90s to early ‘00s...hoping to go back to it.

Hendrix and jazz (both older mainstream and free jazz, and a lot of improv)

Sometimes projects are vastly different

Go-to instrument?
drums or single note melody stuff. thin layers.

prehistoric jazz:

solo stuff resembles them

geodes: “schoster, zabriskie & friends”

Nat Zabriskie

What do you record with?
garageband, because it is easy

audacity was good until it was crashing on her

some tracks she was using internal mics (two different jazz CDs)

Barking Cows show up with multitracked-jazz-compilations-vol-2

A little like Charlotte’s Web
