X-Kray

X-Kray was my first legit FL studio EDM (electronic dance music) song.  I composed and sequenced it back in 2015.  It is very original but doesn't really have many effects.  It has a way of jumping smoothly yet spontaneously to a completely different melody.  Sometimes I use a sound that seems to jump out at you in the transition.  Like a fractal, there's this sense of chaos and repetition.  These are stylings I would continue to develop.  In my EDM songs to follow I'd delve more into effects and sound design, also working with samples.  I continue to experiment in FL studio and other programs.  I don't really have a specific formula.  There's a lot of experimentation and trial and error.  Many things I still don't know how to do.  I never stop learning.  Lately to speed things up I have been sequencing a bunch of beats and melodies and fit them into place later.  I don't even worry about key signature until after.  Doing what I feel in the moment and not over thinking it is my new style!  There's still things I do very purposefully, but mostly I'm winging it.  In that spirit, I am titling my upcoming EDM work- Indeterminate Aspirations!  So now for the song that started it all, X-Kray!

Fuzzy Logic

Fuzzy Logic in the context of artificial intelligence would mean that a machine would think in "degrees of truth" rather than the usual binary "true or false" (1 or 0). In theory it is how a robot could think and make decisions like a human.  This is an instrumental techno work inspired be the idea.
Please enjoy!

Neurosis

First off, why don't a share this ballin' playlist I made on SoundCloud-

I've been quite well.  One thing has dawned on me- how much more open with people I am.  It is this openness along with my own better understanding myself and keeping a journal that has helped me greatly.  Things that might have put me in an Asperger's Shutdown years ago don't today.  There is no shame in having a disability and needing some supports in place.  There is no shame in going to therapy.  There is no shame in having a psychiatrist.  In addition to being Asperger I am also bipolar.  Maybe these fuel my creativity.  At least that is putting a positive spin on it.  My mind can go to weird uncomfortable places.  I don't claim to have a magic elixir, but those are things which help me. 

Here is a song I wrote about feeling neurotic and stuck in obsessions-

I'll simply let the music and lyrics speak for themselves.

I'm excited to be starting guitar lessons again today!
It feels good that I continue to invest in my talent.

Two goals of 2020 are to host 4th annual Birthday Bonanza & release ModdRN KlassiX album!

Fun, Friends & Fireworks!

I have been doing great with my move!  I even wrote a song about the new place and the cool people around here!  And I am still making good lifestyle choices, with a nice long walk yesterday.

On the 4th of July I really enjoyed myself.  I hung out with my buddy John and I learned a new skill: how to light fireworks with a blowtorch!  As you can see below the neighbor's dog was quite obsessed with fountains.


It's a ways off, but I'm already planning another birthday party/concert, possibly at the bowling alley.
I am also eager to release my second album, ModdRN Klassix!
Another wish is buy unique new instruments from Etsy.
Three things which require money, something I'm rather low on, so it's back to work I go!

Another recent development is that I put some music on Audiomack, check me out here:

Thanks for reading, sincerely- 
your favorite nobody,
Phrosty D (The Primal Musician)

Ch'Ch'Changes

I am going to be moving soon.  It is a hopeful path, the new house will allow me a cat!  I am also going to be in a bigger town with more opportunities and much more happening.  I am excited about the location, I think.  We'll see how it feels when I get there. 

I am making lifestyle changes.  I quit smoking and I'm eating healthier and smaller portions.  I am also going out for brisk walks.  It feels good that I am turning over a new leaf.

Work is underway for an exciting new song called Neurosis, sort of a follow up to Trapped In A Pill.  It is personal to me and I'm taking the time to get it just right.  I'm also working on several others.  One of the others is a revamp of Modern Day Caveman.  I was just reflecting this morning that in addition to the lyrics that I've typed I'm also going make notes on the delivery style.  A vocalist is also an actor of sorts and you want to play the part well!

A friend made me take a look at my distant past yesterday.  He made me realize how far I have come and also reminded me not to let history repeat itself.  Around 2011, I used to be sort of an unfocused burn-out and now I'm a sharp super-achiever.  I'm not perfect, but I sure have grown.

About a Girl

I have been dating a girl named Gabby for almost a month.  She is very pretty and a sweat heart but still has sarcastic humor.  I feel good that she liked me right off the bat!  I liked her right off the bat!
I got to cuddle with her and we've kissed.  I got feedback on the kissing and how to do that better.
We have gone dancing and bowling.  It's all new and exciting!  This weekend we go out for Mexican food!  I enjoy being around her and even learn to laugh at myself.

I celebrated my 27th birthday recently.  I had my friends out and I played 4 or 5 songs on my guitar, then we played football in the yard!  We also played Halo 3 jamming to John's punk rock music.  Pizza and cake were our food on that delightful day along with loads of soda pop!

I am working on a new song called "Sweet Pea" and a cover of "Mega Mega Upload"
