Happy Halloween!

Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes

March 31, 2011

I have a new blog.  It’s a lot darker, more personal and more honest about who I really am.  While I hope to resume playing music in Second Life at some point this year, I’ve been looking for an artist identity that feels real.  I’m toying with the name, Phases Like The Moon.  Here’s the blog.  Hope to see you on the other side.

Traveling in Winter

February 19, 2011

I’ve temporarily shutdown Demo’s Wonderland and am putting all my time and energy towards finishing my  forthcoming EP, Empty Orchestra.  I’m  hoping for an April release date and you can be sure you’ll hear about it when it’s ready.  In the meantime,  I’ll be posting  my song lyrics and pictures (some Second Life pics, some real life).  Hope you keep checking back for updates.

xoxo

Traveling in winter and the scenery scrolls by

Frozen lakes reflect boney trees and the void of a white-grey sky

And there’s no one out for miles and miles except the car you’re stuck behind

And you drive and you drive

I don’t  think I’ll make it home tonight

I don’t think I’ve been home my entire life

Everywhere just a little out-of-place and just a little bit wrong

And if I can’t work it out

Well then I just move on

And I drive

Traveling in winter and the sun is dipping low

A phantom broadcast crackles through the static on the radio

And the fading light makes ghosts of all the stranded banks of snow

And you drive and you drive

I don’t  think I’ll make it home tonight

I don’t think I’ve been home my entire life

Everywhere just a little out-of-place and just a little bit wrong

And if I can’t work it out

Well then I just move on

And I drive

Traveling in winter and the houses all have faces

I get a strange nostalgia for unfamiliar places

I pick a random driveway, walk up to the door

It’s lonely on the road and I don’t want to drive no more

I don’t  think I’ll make it home tonight

I don’t think I’ve been home my entire life

Everywhere just a little out-of-place and just a little bit wrong

And if I can’t work it out

Well then I just move on

And I drive

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays!

A quick thank you to everyone who made Demo’s Wonderland and my Second Life fun this year (in no particular order): Keith Riaxik, The Rails, Krakov Letov, Automatic Quandry, Y Factor, Ready! Ricochet, EvaMoon Ember, Damaris Whitfield, Bowie Bravin, and chryblnd Scribe.  Last but certainly not least, the people I couldn’t live without – Ambrosia Rhapsody and Sparky Kalinakov.  Thank you all.

Best of Holiday Wishes to everyone who is reading this.  Help yourself to a copy of my version of the Christmas hymn O Come O Come Emmanuel (I’ve always wanted to turn a Christmas hymn into a downtempo chill piece.)

I’m not sure what 2011 will bring but I hope you’ll check back next year to find out.

The Naughty and Nice Holiday Show

December 14, 2010

This Sunday, December 19th, Demo’s Wonderland celebrates the holiday season in style with four hours of live music.  The Naughty and Nice Holiday show has a little something for everyone.  The day kicks off with Krakov Letov, playing a set of chillaxing ambient electronica at 11 am SLTDemolicious Wonder takes the stage at noon kicking out an hour of new wave inspired synth-pop.  At 1 pm SLT, The Rails stream live from Canada with  indie-pop originals that will get your avatar dancing.   EvaMoon Ember takes over at 2 pm SLT to bring some rollicking raunch and good cheer. 

See you  at Demo’s Wonderland

ps. We have mistletoe and we’re not afraid to use it!

Well someone is going to be on Santa’s Naughty List . . .

November 29, 2010

Eva Moon makes the mind reel and sends most decent folk scrambling for a dictionary to find out just how kinky her latest song, The Elements of Kink, really is.   Or perhaps she’s just making up her Christmas list.  You can catch EvaMoon Ember (her Second Life alter ego) on December 19th  at Demo’s Wonderland for The Naughty and Nice Holiday Show.  More details to follow.  In the meantime you might need a cheat sheet to truly appreciate this song.

Updates

First and foremost, if you missed Bowie Bravin’s show at Demo’s Wonderland you really missed out on a spectacular event.  Bowie Bravin would still be a stand out performer if he presented himself as most Second Life performers do – an avatar standing on the stage with a set of animations.  His voice and his music are enough to sell  a performance.  But he and his amazing crew of dancers and manager, Chryblnd Scribe, pull out all the stops and make it a show, an experience.  Seek him out and see for yourself.  You won’t be disappointed.

Coming up at Demo’s Wonderland – Krakov Letov will be bringing his ambient electronica to our stage on Friday, November 26th at 11 am SLT.  We love having Krakov at Wonderland because not only does he make some amazing music,  it gives us a good reason to break out the particle effects.   Also we’re hoping to turn Wonderland into a Winter Wonderland, so come by and see what’s in the works.

On Sunday, November 28th, I’ll be playing a set at The Notes Shack Pub at 1 pm SLT.  I’ve been messing around with a looper and hope to debut at least one song using it, my bass and keys.  The tricky part?  Said looper is disassembled and lying on my kitchen table at the moment after the record trigger switch died.  Will I have it fixed in time?  Show up and find out. 

Hope to see you soon!
