So guys. Here's the deal. This show is all about me today, because this show was on MY birthday!
This show was a lot of fun for multiple reasons:
- It was my birthday
- My inhibitions were down
- I played a lot of video game music and I liked it.
I really don't have much else to say about this except that I got to use some field recordings during the show that I recorded in France, which I think added a lot, and I think that I will repeat in the future. I will need to make more recordings for that methinks. Anyway, onto the set!

- Video game music: It's no secret to anyone who knows me that I really love video game music. I have lots of soundtracks on my computer, and I'm constantly finding more from other friends. Being able to share it was such a fun experience, and I'm thinking I should do it more often.
- Birthday songs!: I'm happy I got to play some birthday songs from an actual ALBUM of birthday songs. Yay!
- Field recording layering: I loved using my field recording of the bells of the Perigueux cathedral, and I love even more that they were layered with something as elegant and beautiful as the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto no. 2. Major eargasm for me.
- Carlos Giffoni: I'm so sorry for that. Even though it was my birthday, I didn't mean to play a purely noise piece like that. Thankfully it righted itself, but I should preview tracks more often when I pick out CDs.
- Even Deeper by NIN: Although a good friend of mine requested this, it kind of broke up my set weirdly because I knew the track so well, and I think it was one of their singles. I usually try to stay away from really popular tracks.
- 'Poopin' by Toxic Lipstick: That was a weird track. It looked really cute, but was not quite. Oh well!
