199X JUNE 14th, 2014
199X A little while back I finished a new track and forgot to mention it here! (Despite it being a new favorite of mine). It's called "199X". This one's a tribute to the way we viewed the future, in the past, in this case the early 1980's. "199X", and sometimes "200X" was a year used in some games to mean "sometime in the future", and seems quaint now, since we're in the 201Xs. Anyway, I drew up a marker image of a sci-fi / post-apocalyptic scene, made a fake Nintendo Famicom (Japanese NES) label, and wandered around taking photos of it. As for the song, it's sort of like space hip-hop meets an intense wall of sound. The video cycles through several difference scenes that I set up (stills only, but ones I took a while making). I hope you give this a listen and check out the art. I'm trying to merge my music and visual art closer together from now on, and it's quite exciting. (Best listened to on good, bass-heavy, headphones or speakers, not tiny smartphone speakers)

You can download the track here.

Also, like all my Macro-related art, I made the single promo image you see to the left. Be sure to click the image for a larger version! Want a nice big wallpaper of the label image I drew for this fake Famicom catridge? Click here!
 
STREET MEAT MARCH 7th, 2014
Street Meat I finished a new Macro song a couple weeks ago, called "Street Meat". It's super ominous and the theme is car crashes and clinging to life. Seven minutes of crunchy Game Boy sounds, car crash samples, thunderous beats, and moody atmospherics!

AMETHYST AUGUST 12th, 2013
Amethyst I finished a new Macro song recently! Well, 80% new, technically. I made "Amethyst" originally back in 2007, my last new song before the big music hiatus. Thing is, I was never 100% happy with how it turned out, but there were definitely some ideas in the song that I wanted to keep. Thus, I decided to redo the track, stripping out a lot of stuff and adding in a bunch, and now I'm pretty pleased with it!

LIKE A PHOENIX FROM THE ASHES... JULY 5th, 2013
Macro is back!
...the Macro site is back, and totally new!

As I've mentioned elsewhere on this site, it's summer 2013 and I'm in the process of coming out of a long six-year hiatus from music making & performing. I've been making new music, playing around with new toys, and feeling super happy and inspired by my new life in... Japan!

I moved to Nagasaki in January, and it's been a huge and positive life change. True, I don't have the creative network here that I had back in San Francisco or Detroit-area, but I've been meeting cool people and learning about the local art and music scene.

Anyway, stay tuned while I make some more new stuff and generally get back in the saddle again. In the meantime, feel free to like Macro on Facebook! I'll be posting updates here, but mostly just the bigger ones. If you want some of the fun minutia, Facebook is where that shall be.
