about

P.O.F.

Most of POF was made on a DJ Controller using software originally intended for mixing songs but for this project was used as a sampler allowing for live beat composition, chopping of samples, drums and other effects. Many of the songs were recorded LIVE in my studio in 1 take so they do not follow standard quantization patterns and are very raw in their sound and style.

This is a method that I discovered and pioneered in the area during the 2005-2010 era. The ability to make your own loops and samples, record them and reload those files back into a Virtual DJ system for more live manipulation allowed for incredibly unique sounding compositions, real-time responses and a range of interesting sounds in general. The results reflected honesty and a raw sounding musical landscape. This was my introduction to producing.

This non-conventional style of production opened my ears to the possibilities of sound. Possibilities that I'm not sure I would have explored using traditional means of production. The technique served me very well and was introduced to a select few budding producers who shortly after, adopted the method as their own. These talented producers have since moved on to others methods of beat manipulation, reigning in their own styles, making masterpieces of sound along the way. I am proud of each and every one of them for their dedication to this craft.

Without their support and enthusiasm in the field, I cannot say for certain that I would have continued to go on producing music in this manner, continually pushing the limits of my creativity using a method which held many restrictions but also pushed me as a producer... at times provoking intense reasoning and a profound understanding of music at its very core.

As a music maker, I ask myself if the technology I am using to create electronic music is giving me all that is necessary for my full expression. I now use my method in conjunction with Logic and other DAW's to produce my more polished ideas. I'm glad to have stumbled upon this method which has allowed me to explore sound in real time and helped fortify my integrity as a music producer and Sounds Observer.

Continuing my path, I am now more drawn toward song & harmony. Many songs on POF feature my vocals and instrument playing. I would like to focus more on original compositions. If I can make beautiful music, I will do so.
