FFS Blog Hits 200!

This entry marks the celebration of my 200th Floating Fish Studios Blog post. I started the FFS Blog back in June (2009) as a way to let people know that FFS moved, share pictures of my new house/studio, and to keep everyone up-to-date with the latest FFS news.

Like I said back during the 100th FFS Blog post celebration in 11/09, the FFS Blog has done all of those things but it has also expanded to cover much more. It is now an important platform for releasing previously unreleased audio and video from the FFS Vaults, an outlet for sharing sordid tales and backstories from the FFS universe, and even a way for me to embarrass myself with pictures and stories from my youth.

I'd love to find out what you, the reader, watcher, and listener, think of the blog. Feel free to post a comment or send me an e-mail to let me know.

I'll see you at the 300th post celebration!

Synth Jam 2010 Trances On

Floating Fish Studios held its third in a series of Synth Jam Sessions at FFS II on 05/15/10. The small but efficient ensemble gathered included Dave Chandler (aka Thee Sub One Genius), M Scott McConnell (aka MC2P4), and Matt Norcross (aka Ttam Troll).

Though the theme of this session was '80s Style and our goal was to compose an '80s influenced dance track for an upcoming Julie L Myers produced music video, we managed to stray from that purpose on several occasions.

This improv, titled TR-10, is one such occasion and documents our journey into Trance.
