Magic Monster

Posted on: April 22nd, 2011 by vapidvim No Comments

My Peppermint Pumpkin bandmate Carisa Bianca Mellado started Magic Monster Records. One of the first projects to really kick things off is the Magic Monster online radio station. I am responsible for the radio show called Chill Out. If your interested in new, hip and underground music tune in to Magic Monster Radio.

I started this webpage with a goal of learning wordpress and I wanted to make my own theme from scratch. I started in Photoshop with a mood board (as seen below). I than made a Photoshop mockup of the home and portfolio pages. From there I wrote a standardized HTML and CSS version of the site that made it a lot easier to implement my design into wordpress.

Circuit Bending

Posted on: April 21st, 2011 by vapidvim No Comments

In my free time I modify electronics, toys and instruments in search of new sounds and unexpected music. Through experimentation and determination I have collected and built a few mutant instruments and contraptions. Along with my buddy James and his collection of bent gear we record our soundscapes and musical experiments under the name Infinitesimal Cog. I am really interested in making a circuit bending website that archives videos, tutorials, and acts as a community hub for fellow benders.
Here is a demo video of my bent Yamaha DD50. I added 28 on/off/on switches that independently change the sounds the drum machine makes.

If your new to circuit bending and want to know more here are some links that I find useful.

Sophya has always been an inspiration to me.  I had a lot of fun making her website. I started with an Art Nouveau theme in mind and with an ancient table based layout I ended up with this very stylish site. Through this journey I have learned a lot. I would likely make the markup and css more standardized now, though the site functions as intended. Updates coming soon.
