Jamming in Kensington with the good man Anto. It’s always fun to dip into flow to see what comes out. On this day I had the looper with me and I was able to create a nice soundscape for Anto to speak over. The video is cut with a lot of footage from our time in Montreal, and other happenings, mostly in 2019.
Project name, Digital Apocalypse was recorded at my grandfathers house in Etobicoke, ON in 2014. w/ Jason on the vocals, Justin on the drums, and Jana on the violin.
Not only is it really enjoyable to play music with others, but there is so much learning that happens. It is a communication that goes beyond words. I absorb other peoples perspectives. I learn to harmonize different views. I gain insight.
Kick It is collaborative effort between Krosst Out, a.k.a. Aaron, and the group formerly known as T*ke2, of which I was a member.
I had been holding onto the music for this song for a while, one of the few songs I composed on the bass, and after getting to know Krosst Out at a job I was working we decided to collaborate on the track. The punk feel fit his vibe pretty well.
The guitar/drums/bass were recorded in Brampton, ON, respectively by Eric, Matt and myself, and then Aaron laid down the vocal at his own studio.
Family is a song sung by Natale. I met Natale in my days hanging out and observing the Occupy (Toronto) movement that swept across the world.
Being the quiet kid I was, with an interest in human behaviour, I often found myself sitting quietly and watching the passing characters. One day, a friendly lady walked towards me holding a book in her hands called What the Buddha Taught. She said, “you, you look like you have something to teach me. Teach me!”. Ohh, Natale, to this day, we still talk. I admire the sincerity in her words.
Natale wrote the words, and I composed and recorded the guitars and bass. My cousin Justin is on the drums.
