Hey Primate Posse™! As you all know, I decided to decrease the number of ‘toons I’m uploading to this site in order to concentrate on my other projects, mostly involving the world of contemporary art. So I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve been doing on that front. Some of you are familiar with my performance art alter-ego Stan Dickie, who has even appeared in this strip. Anyway, I’ve been working on the recordings of the songs that I wrote for him. All of the Stan songs were recorded by me on my mac with a Blue Yeti microphone in Garage Band. Basically, I played guitar and sometimes Harmonica to a drum loop and recorded the vocals. The songs never had any bass or drum fills. But that is slowly changing! I found a way to make my guitar sound pretty ‘bassy’ and I’ve also been recording drum fills with a midi controller. I’m pretty happy with the results, so please have a listen!

It’s interesting that much of the work I’ve been doing has actually been music related (I gave up music more than 10 years ago – or so I thought, but that’s a story for another time), and very unlike ‘conventional’ contemporary art (if there is such a thing). There is another music project that I will unveil soon that is unrelated to Stan. And I’ll also post the rest of the Stan songs as they are finally completed! 🙂 See you next week!
