NEW NEWS: 

For once it seemed like the month didn't disappear in a flash...   Had some shows roll in on short notice.  It was nice to be a working musician again!  And it's still rolling along. I released some new content as well:  A new video for Widespread Noise "Smooth As Peanut Butter."  and new music:  Noah Peterson "Disco House Party" 15 minutes of Disco-House.  And "Sweat" from No Ordinary Life - a synth heavy song from my newest collaboration. 

This was a month for a lot of tedious record label work.  It was so boring and ate up so many hours, I'm not even gonna bore you with the details.  Let's just say, the reality of running a record label is tedious details, waiting for email responses, and data, data, data.  It is not glamorous. 

On the not boring side of things, I am working through a pile of recorded material. More releases will be coming out in the coming weeks from me, Widespread Noise, and No Ordinary Life.   And I had four songs added to various playlists.  That's always good for the ego!  I've also got three upcoming Facebook live streaming sessions sponsored by the American Federation of Musicians - Musician Performance Trust Fund (AFM-MPTF).  (This is the musicians union.)  It'll be broadcast on their facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/MusicPerformanceTrustFund 

In other news, my steady Friday night gig has come to an end.   But I've picked up a NEW residency - starting in June, I'll be back at Southtown 101 every first Friday!  7-10pm with No Ordinary Life.  It'll be synths, sax, and beats.  Should be a great time for everyone.  And my airport gigs are coming back.  Yay! 

To get my tracks and videos first subscribe to my youtube channel www.youtube.com/noahpeterson and Spotify playlist. 

This month's free download is "Two Lefts and a Right" Scroll to the bottom and click the link to get it.

2.23.21

Can one use up all their creative juices?   That's the question of the day.   Many of my music-making friends are having a hard time making new stuff these days.  I feel the same.   It's a struggle.  I think it's the times.  I think of us are twisting in the wind waiting for this Covid thing to be over.   It's tough to create when you have little to no audience or shows or work.   I'm sure some folks are rising to the occasion.  But I'm not.    I'm also not wallowing in it.  I'm trying to keep at and work on other things in the hopes that inspiration or something close enough to it will spark an idea.     I have a bunch of things started, but no impetus to finish them, no drive to make it good.    Maybe I need the pressure.  I'm good under pressure.  Who knows....   I'm going to go fiddle with a synth.  Maybe I'll get lucky.

 

2.7.2021 

The sad reality is the isolation of doing this music thing.  It's really a DIY thing.  The fact is there are things you have to say, things you have to do, and it's often not polite.  Sometimes it's very gracious, but mostly it's tactical.  And it's over nothing....  the reality is we're scrapping over peanut shells.  Doesn't change the fact that some fuckwad is still a fuckwad. Doesn't change the fact that deals are still deals.  But the sad pittance of it, and even more sadly, the importance of that pittance has very real consequences.  

And none of that helps with people who disagree and can never understand.  And there's a lot of squeezing that goes on.  I've done it, I do, and I get squeezed.  It's a part of the biz.  It's real and, sadly, necessary, but there's a ton of hacks, two-bit hustlers, and just flat out shitty people out there.  

If only I was 20 again, I'd be an engineer and have a great life.  

It's not that I'm dissatisfied, it's that those close to me have zero conception.  As I get older that carries much more weight.  I'm fine with it. I made and committed to those decision a long time ago. But aging and living with those choices makes one want to dissuade others from this life.  It's not a bad life, but it is a hard life.  And I've not really had a hard life because I'm a dinosaur and am able to handle most anything, but relationships suffer, and there is no joy or happiness there.  And that kind of thing weighs on you.  

So be it.  Choices.

Noah Peterson -  Two new videos from me, Discontinuous Representation of Information - The video was more of an accident that anything.  I got a GoPro and instead of getting video of a stroll on the Riverwalk, I set it to time lapse and took 5,000+ pics.  So I made a video with that instead.  It's kinda cool.  I was going through my youtube channel  and updating video information and discovered I didn't have any videos up for my release "One Man Jams" so I made a fun little vid for Plantains and Bananas - check it out!  I've also a new jam coming out October 12th called "Let's Do It." 

This month's freebie is "A Volcano Erupts While Mother and Child Are Reunited"  off of the O.M.N.I. release The Mission To Mercury and Hope for the Future.  This is getting some decent activity on Spotify.   Track download is at the bottom of this message.

NEW NEWS: 

I'm not even gonna talk about it.  Sheesh...  Changing gears - - NEW VIDEOS, NEW MUSIC!!!  Yay!!! 

River Barons is threatening to release a new single.  We're waiting with baited breath as it has the new guy on it!  Not sure if it's keys, a third guitar, or lap steel; so it'll be a surprise for everyone! 

O.M.N.I. "The Mission to Mercury and Hope For the Future" is out!  Here's the Spotify link, and the first video "A Volcano Erupts as Mother and Child are Reunited" is up.  It's 2:17 of a freight train of groove and in-yo-face horns!   We didn't do a full story-line for this release.  Instead, the long titles are the story in the continuing saga of Captain Funktion.  The whole thing from start to finish is a very nice listen.   You can do the entire album on Youtube using static videos - click here for that. 

No Ordinary Life - I'm working on mixing for that release.  I'm taking my time.  Really enjoying what we've got so far.  No timetable for the next release. 

Widespread Noise has a new release out "Elements of Nature."  Seven tracks for an epic 63 minutes of music all named after unusual space phenomena.  Static videos here.  Second video, "The Antennae Galaxies" is up here - 15 minutes of beautiful ambient music set to some lovely lake/river footage for a very relaxing and meditative experience.  Perfect for when you need a break or a mental reset.  Add it to your playlist and chill once or twice a week after you've been "Karened." 

Noah Peterson - I've got a backlog of tracks that I can't quite seem to get released.  I've got a pile of them, hopefully I can squeeze a couple out this month.  Remember last month when I said I've been shooting some footage?  I've used some of it for "World Audio" off the Baseline 120 Electro Jams release.  Check it out! 

GrooveTronX is on official hiatus.  Not sure when, or if, we'll be back out. 

To do our small part as a remembrance of 9/11, this month's track is "September Morning" from Irie Impressions.  Track download is at the bottom of this message.

Love in the Time of Cholera is a novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.  It's about a relationship is a difficult time.  I feel like Music in the Time of Covid could back today's answer to that.   I don't have any real "news" this month.  I've gotten a lot done around the house and the yard.   I've been shooting some outdoor footage for video content. I've performed a couple of times at Pizzeria Vesuvio and am in talks to something more regular there, but we have yet to finalize details.  I've been working on some mixes for No Ordinary Life and O.M.N.I. is getting ready for a new release!!!!   And to celebrate that, I've attached a track called "Beach Dreams" for your enjoyment.

I do have a new project to announce. "No Ordinary Life" is a new collaboration featuring myself and Matt Wolff.   Matt and I started getting together to do some recording sessions featuring loops and synthesizers.   We kept things in a direction that fit my project "Widespread Noise."  Although as time went on, Matt took more of a lead role during the sessions and we gradually moved over to more conventional sounding music and shorter tracks.  It wasn't really fitting into the Widespread Noise idea and I started a separate designation "The Wolff Sessions" so people could identify the creations from that period.    Matt wanted to push more into that direction and I did as well, so we decided to reinvent the project and shake off the old parameters.   I hold you'll enjoy the new creations and follow the experience of No Ordinary Life.  And Widespread Noise will be going back to it's more "noise" focus! 

Regular jams Tues & Thurs nights, 9pm CST - http://streetjelly.com/noahpeterson.   (NOT TONIGHT) 

Cosmic Dust : A new video is up for the jazz fusion tune "Bones for Kitty."  And yes, it's a cat video.

Last month's recap:  Just when you thought it was safe to go back outside....   (sigh)   June started out great. Texas began to reopen, I got some gigs, I did a fantastic live stream event Viva Poseia on location at Mission Marquee, we went out to eat a couple of times and then the 2nd wave hit.   Looks like the groundhog saw phlegm on it's shadow and now we have 6 more months of Covid....   Anyway. Wash your hands and stay safe.

I got nominated for one of those FB music thingys.  Imma change it up. I'm going to to talk about ten of my recordings. 

#10 Baseline 120: Electro Jams 

This was my 2nd consecutive non-saxophone recording release under my own name. It also was the 2nd consecutive non-jazz recording under my own name. 

At this point, I'm doing one or two jazz gigs a year - mostly parties or events. I'm doing a lot of looping, electronic music, and rock. My sub gigs are some one off recordings and top 40 gigs. But i'm another musical world... 

I'm expanding my tech tech-up. I get my 2nd Kaoss Pad and am trying different signal paths for all of my new tech. And I have to learn my gear. I would spend sessions just jamming on the two pads hooked together. Once I figured some things out - I started recording the sessions and would listen to see how things came out. 

The imprecise nature of the devices made a lot of space for movement and direction. I have a video of some female break-dancers that's pretty cool - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcpDotL0rKE

#9 Ambient Space Sounds 

It's just bizarre to even be posting this in light of the past week. Here it goes anyhow... 

This recording came about because of the O.M.N.I. recording project. But a different direction. Quiet, ambient, dark, no tempo... I was swapping synths with folks and made this on a microKorg. 

I actually had a pretty strong sound concept in my head for what I wanted. The idea was the album itself was a soundtrack to a space journey. I didn't do any physical copies and it's been my most streamed album. I'm surprised at how much it has been streamed. It's kinda fun, minimal, and I think makes for a great start to finish listen.

#8 Tip the Band 

This is a very interesting recording. Without Dick Weissman, this never would have happened. 

Dick and I became friends at a musicians union mixer. He didn't seem like one of the usual suspects. I learned a great deal from him about the business. His experience and knowledge is tremendous. And he's pretty funny too. At some point he asked me to play on a couple of his recordings. I was thrilled to do that. 

We did some gigs together and I had an idea. I asked him to co-write some songs with me and invited him to bring in any other originals he had. He brought in "A Benefit For Me," a hilarious song about musicians playing for free. Mostly we just had fun, although we did have guess who was going to win an election... 

I wanted bass on the recording, and we brought in the late Jim Miller. Jim was a much loved man, musician, and producer. This was one of Jim's last recordings before his passing. It's also the only recording where he sings and I believe it's the only recording of his original songs. 

The sounds are a mix of the three us: guitar, banjo, washboard, bass, vocals. It's all pretty light-hearted stuff, and some of the tunes are pretty timeless. I really like it. It's not often anyone gets to make a really fun and silly record that's still good. 

And remember whenever you're out and about - Tip the Band!!!
