Simon Fresh

Simon and I have a lot of fun with GarageBand

, because music should be fun and not a lot of fussy work.

Here’s a track we made last month. Simon’s freestyle is liquid fire. So proud.

Production note: I apologize for my clipped hollering at the beginning

, which both sounds bad and is absurd. This was a failed level test, but The Talent thinks it’s funny and wants it to stay in the mix.

I Like It: Spiraling – Transmitter

Let me make a long-overdue mention of the 2002 album “Transmitter” by the band Spiraling. I probably listen to this thing once a month, and have ever since Steve brought it to my attention.

I like just about every single thing about every single song on this recording

, and I wish I could find a few dozen more that I like this much. How’s that for a recommendation?

At that CDBaby link, you can read this summary: “Intelligent synth-rock that gives a nod to power pop with progressive undertones.” Yes, please.

I know: Old man likes old music

, but it is so good.

My Son Just Read Music

This is a really big deal for me. 

Simon is five, and he just read this music and played it on his recorder. I know it’s absolute beginner material, but he did it (with great time, by the way) and I am super proud right now!

He’s done some basic music at school and mostly knows a quarter note from a half note. Tonight he found his recorder and this book and wanted me to tell him about it. I think it’s a first for him to be playing a wind instrument with breath control, articulation, and reading the whole thing top to bottom. He was really proud of himself!

I asked him if he would be able to tell his music teacher this week
