I have started an event at the Sail Inn called BIT-FLIP. Every Tuesday night from 7-11pm we feature local electronic music of all kinds from Arizona. So far we’ve had electro, dnb, industrial, electro-pop, and everything in between.
The idea is to form a collective of musicians and fans of electronic music to play shows, collaborate with each other, and show support whenever possible. If you are interested in playing or just stopping by to check out the tunes, shoot me an email at: email@example.com with any questions you might have.
I’ve been working 80 hours a week (give or take a few hours) for the past two weeks at my day job. I work maintenance at an apartment complex here in Tempe, AZ and such long hours at a very physical job take their toll.
I’ve been going to work before the sun rises and leaving after it sets, which in itself interests me. I’ve been thinking about how having such a long work schedule makes me really cherish the time that you have to yourself and to spend with friends and family.
Most mornings I have about 10 minutes to myself before I have to walk out the door, and I take that time to sit at my keyboard and work on some piano-heavy songs. I get a little singing in, and tune out the rest of the world. I’ve come to be very moved by those moments. Each second I think about how I am doing what I love, and I need to absorb everything I can from that time. Each cord I play, note and word that I sing, is magnified ten fold. It has been quite eye opening, and I plan on keeping that intensity as I am able to dedicate more time to music…
