Ba bada ba da da

My completed Ableton Live Assignment which I performed in class on Monday, I apologise for when it gets stuck in your head….enjoy! 🙂


Girl With One Eye.

I uploaded another video from the Velma Grove show!
Bj and I are covering “Girl With One Eye” by Florence and the Machine.

While you’re on my channel feel free to check out some of my other covers! Hope you enjoy!

Balnarring Open Mic Night.

Last Wednesday night I played at an open mic night in Balnarring. It had such a cool atmosphere.
You had to donate $5 to get in, write your name on a list and then when it was your turn you just went up and played two songs.
I played my original and a cover of ‘I don’t mind’ by Defeater.
I then called Bj up to the stage and we did a cover of Lonely Boy by the black Keys. This was my favourite part of the evening because when we got to the first chorus, someone on drums, bass, guitar and harmonica had jumped on the stage and started jamming with us.
It was all so chilled, I will definitely go back!
It’s on every second Wednesday night at the Town Hall in Balnarring. It seems to be run just by the local muso’s and they had a cute little set up with Fairly lights lighting up the stage.

Ableton Live Assignment.

So I was given this assignment at uni which required me to develop a track, minimum 3 minutes long of all my own recorded sounds in Ableton Live. Doesn’t sound too bad, but then I got told I had to perform it live, and I started stressing.
I finally started the assignment tonight, and after working on it for a few hours I am surprisingly happy with how it’s turning out.
I started with a beat, using sounds I had previously recorded for another assignment which were a friend playing pool, and me brushing my teeth. I used the drum rack tool to create this. I then recorded my vocals just scatting along to the rhythm. I added some reverb and messed around with the EQ on these tracks to make them sound funky.

I’m a little bit stuck, on where to go from here so I’m hoping if I sleep on it and try again tomorrow night I will have some fresh ideas, and not realise I’m tired right now and its actually horrible!

I will keep you updated on my progress with the foreign world of electronic music and when it is done I will upload it!

In other news on Wednesday night I am playing at an open mic night in Balnarring! According to Bj it’s got pretty chilled vibes and seems like it’s just a jam sesh for local musicians so it should be a good environment! Hopefully I’ll have some photos and vids up after that.

Until then, check out my videos on youtube and share them with your friends!

Velma Grove Debut Headline Show.

On Thursday the 30th of August Bj and I played at the Velma Grove Debut Headline show. We played an eight song set which included covers of Settle Down, Lonely Boy, Girl With One Eye, My Hero, Yellow, I’m On Fire, Valerie and ‘Supercocaine’.
The other supporting act on the night was The Men They Call Jayne who got the crowd nice and warmed up for Velma Grove.
I also took photos on this night, and you can see them all here!



Hey! Here is another video from a few weeks ago when I played at Red Bennies with my mate Bj, if you like this check out the other videos on my channel! 🙂
