    Song Style Mashup


    There are a lot of people doing song mashups nowadays, so I just thought I’d completely butcher a Rihanna song…just for kicks. I decided to use the song “Rude Boy”. I found the acapella online and simply dragged it into Ableton Live 8. I recorded and double tracked the guitars …

    Imitating Weather


    Here is my attempt at imitating a thunder storm using objects within my “reach”. Being that my desk is surrounded by instruments, I had access to a plethora of interesting sounds. I used an odd instrument that I bought at an African store that produces a “droplet” type of sound …

    Anup Sastry is groovy!
