Making music

I’ve been playing around with music again. For my birthday, I ordered Teenage Engineering’s Factory OP-16 synth, which has been fun to tinker with. Here’s a quick series of patterns I slammed together into a track on it:

I’ve been trying to get it to play nicely with my Kaossilator 2, but they don’t sync, so it’s all upon my impeccable timing to get them totally aligned, which is a little difficult. In addition to this little bit of tinkering fun, a few weeks back, some coworkers and myself rented out some studio space and jammed for 3 hours. It was so much fun, we’re doing it again this Thursday night. I went and got a short in my guitar fixed today at Guitar Center and also got it restrung. The guy working on it was like “ooooh, this is a 78? Nice.” Sometimes I forget I have a really nice, somewhat rare guitar. I was looking at amps, because I need a new one, and walking around and suddenly I heard *my guitar*. I was sort of surprised that I recognized it’s tone across the way once the tech fixed it, but I totally did. Anyway, fun stuff.
