So, if you don't know already, I have been one of two people obnoxiously pushing a kickstarter campaign for the last 3 weeks.
The newly formed duo (Me, and Jesse Crowley) called "Tiny Boats" has been working on their debut album since early March of this year.
Tiny Boats' music could be classified as the energetic...

So, about 4 or 5 years ago, I met a guy named Jesse Crowley, and we played music together. At first we played music that other people wrote, but then Jesse got bored with that, and decided to write Christmas music instead. We recorded a few Christmas albums, and I think they turned out pretty good.
So, Jesse decided that wasn't enough...

So lately, I've been experiencing a lot of clients coming in, giving studio time as a gift, and to be honest, I think that is awesome. As always, ya never know what to expect when a new client comes in, but I've gotta say, anyone who gives the gift of music is probably someone I wouldn't mind hanging around in the studio.
As a way of saying...

Music Speaks For Itself
With everything going on that has to do with running Art City Sound, and making sure everything is taken care of, it's easy to forget what is really important. Of course, my family is, and always will be, #1 in my life, but aside from that, the most important thing in this studio is good music. Having a good time is a definite plus, but...

Utah Valley = Talent!
So, I've had the opportunity for the past few months to work full time with clients from all over Utah Valley. From the sweet harmonies of By Request's soft country swing, to the relentless brutal drive of The Suffering's hardcore sound, the longer I'm in company with musicians of this area, the more I'm convinced that Utah Valley seems to be...

For those of you who ar...

So, I've been surfing around the net today, figuring out how I'm going to work in the new website with the old one and what-not, and while doing so, I found out that apparently, Art City Sound is nothing but a big piece of Volvo heavy machinery. Take a look at this link for proof. (link here, too). While you're at it, take a...

So... Yeah... Holy cow. I started writing this as a Facebook update, and quickly realized ther was too much to say, so, into the blog it goes!
The bottom line is - We are back in business, people!
As of right now, the new studio is close to being finished, but the good news is - we can record. I've got 3 channels wired up, a...

Ibanez SR-300 + Kustom Amp!
Since we've opened for business, and even before, I've started to notice a sad trend in recording audio. This is speaking extremely generally, and there have been a few people who have definitely broken the mold, but in my experience, I've noticed that the musical instrument getting the least amount of love is the bass guitar.
For the most ...

Well.. I got to verse 3, when a concept which, for some reason, has been pounded into my spirit throughout pretty much my whole life, came ringing true and clear. What is that concept, you ask? Don't assume to know anything about the effect you may have on others. Sometimes you can tell, but sometimes you can't.
Because of the honesty...

Earlier today, they both went to the dentist to have a check-up, and for Luci, it was a semi-traumatic experience. She did really good, but at one point, she was seriously distraught about this gun-looking thing which sprayed water everywhere, and the vacuum they were going to ...

So, Advanced Budget Studios took a bit of a break during the holidays, and with that came the usual curiosity as to how the new year would be.
Well, I'd have to say that 2011 is looking great. We started off the year recording a wonderful new artist named Taylor Miller. He'll have a website up soon, and his music sounds fabulous! ...

No, my computer didn't fry.

Yup. I woke up yesterday morning and just couldn't ...

This microphone didn't mean much to me at the time, but something intrigued me about it. After 20 minutes or so with google, I kne...

Two weeks later, I add some vocals and effects, and this is what you've got.
I hope you like it. (press the ...

Gen Conf. 2019 Elder Oaks
First off, I don't like at all that the congregation was laughing during the initial parts of the talk. This interpretation of humor, to me, tells me people aren't really trying to empathize with someone who could ask that type of question. Considering the implications of polygamy, the question of living in one's own house vs. liv...

As programming techniques become more and more complex, and the programmers continue to be just as, or more, diversified, companies who insist on being the industry standard while tossing away organizations such as the W3C, make life as a web developer increasingly difficult.

When I originally got the box for my new ATI Radeon HD4850 video card this morning, I was impressed even in the ...
