Today is my friend, Chars Bonin’s Birthday. I forget how old he is, but I am certain that he is much, much younger than me.
I’ve mentioned this before, but Chars wrote, directed and performed in a great film called, “Finding Home.” I am proud to have composed and performed the film’s soundtrack. (I also recorded the music for the film’s trailer, which was actually a blast to do!)
A lot of people have asked how they can purchase a copy of the film, and I am happy to say it is now available on DVD at OrangeAppleProductions.com.
I loved working on this film, It’s all locally filmed and produced, and I am amazed at the performances and hard work of everyone involved. Seriously, you should check out the credits; there are, like, a TON of talented people who made this happen. So, support Independent Film and pick up a copy today.
In case I haven’t made it abundantly clear, I am a musician, not a photographer. Oh sure, I can hold a camera and follow the basic “aim away from face” rule, but that’s about it. Most of the photos you see on my blog were taken by my wife Patty. She is a very gifted photographer and she frequently posts on her Flickr stream. I’m trying to become a better photographer just so she can be in more pictures with Isla.

As a result, most of my posts involve original music I’ve created for various clients, or just for fun. This piece is one of the latter. I’ve been switching over my recording software from Digital Performer to Apple’s Logic Pro, so I put together this simple piece of music entitled “Clockmaker” as a way of trying out the software. My goal was to complete it in four hours, but it ended up taking twice as long. Oh well.
