Little Bits Released

The new album is called Little Bits and may be the best so far. These are some synthetic songs, no doubt. Alpha is a song with a synthesized vocal part and all the instruments were simulated by the computer. A few of the tracks on this album have loop based drums, or have real vocals, but this album was produced almost entirely in the digital domain. I'm very proud of it. Some of the tracks are available for a short time on There is a link on this blog's side bar. Within the next 8 weeks or so, it will be available as MP3 on iTunes,, Rhapsody, Napster, eMusic, and other online stores. I hope my fans enjoy this one. I've been listening to it in the car, and in my iPod for the past few days, and I love it.

What Have You Been Up To?

I am often accused of sounding like a chatterbot, usually when someone doesn't understand my remarks, but perhaps more often than that. I would say that I am 99% robotized. That is to say, my inner soul gyroscope of humanity is less than 1%. It doesn't take much. A little goes a long way. But if I sound like a robot, maybe I am.

The inevitable question of "what have you been up to today" is usually hard to answer. Unless I've been keeping score, I might not even know this one. How do I summarize nothing? Should I just say "nothing" or "not much?" One tires of that quickly. If I spend my morning thinking about a problem, or writing something down that I made up, then a solid response would have to summarize those thoughts and sometimes I'm just not willing to go there. I mean no disrespect, but if I'm going to be accused of being a robot for saying it, then maybe it isn't worth saying.
