Here’s a track to check out that I did the other day in studio.
Ryda Baby called me up last minute to get a song knocked out; something he wanted to release before his upcoming mixtape. He uploaded it to Soundcloud so why not throw up a post and share some music I’ve been working on.
Came across this the other day and thought I should share.
This was a big project I worked on my senior year of college for the Digital Filmmaking course at Salisbury University. This was the first time I worked on a film that was longer than 5-10 shorts. The amount of work we put into this was intense. A lot of sleepless nights and long hours. It was probably my greatest learning experience in school though. And I got to work with a great team.
For the budget we had (or lack thereof) and the short time period we had to produce the project, we did a great job. Take a look!
I worked on this last weekend. Knocked out a 14 song project in 2 days. Talk about work ethic.
Take a listen. Awesome grindcore. These guys know what they’re doing. You need to be on point to do 14 songs in 2 days.
Kenny Werner is someone that inspires a lot of my playing and philosophy in playing music. If you don’t know who he is, he’s quite the accomplished jazz pianist. Go ahead and google his name and get more information on who he is.
This video is something I repeatedly watch. It’s a masterclass that he taught at NYU that focused on jazz performance and creativity. More specifically, a philosophy on playing music that can also be applied to living.
Take the time to watch this. You will not be disappointed.
Tried this out at the local music shop yesterday. Limited edition Warwick Corvette $$. And yeah… I want one. It plays amazing… The neck and fingerboard play incredibly smooth and it sounds great even when I tune in Standard D, which is my usual tuning lately.
It’s definitely on my wish list of music and audio gear.
Our minds seem to love the number 3. 3 strikes, 3 numbers on a combination lock, 3 competitive medals, etc.
Interestingly enough, the magic number for music is even 3.
The mind likes to focus on no more than 3 elements of music at a time. After that, it is hard to find equal focus on any extra elements.
Take a listen to many of your favorite records and think of them in this way.
So I had a part in a music video that was filmed over at Nightsky recently (that was totally last minute). I ended up mocking the guitar in the track haha. It was pretty fun actually. I had to pick up the song well enough in only a few minutes before we started filming! I think I got it to look close enough to the part. Take a look.

Here’s the latest project I worked on. It’s a short from the talented Joe Carabeo, called “The Magic Trick”. Scored by my brother, Jason Kearse, and mixed by me.
It was a last minute job I did on the go with my Macbook Pro. Gotta love technology.
Enjoy! And also check out Joe’s other films at www.one-shots.com.
