May 23, 2012 emblemThe studio

…is alive!

As of Saturday, I am once again recording at my leisure. I couldn’t be happier. I tested out the new equipment with a straightforward cover of The Coral’s “Pass It On,” a favorite of mine from a few years ago. Reminds me of when I first moved to Asheville.

Now to catch up on all these new demos…

May 18, 2012 emblemd’enregistrement mobile

Back in December, my one and only computer crashed on me. For once, nothing was lost and I was able to get it up and running again within a few weeks. I had been using this ancient thing to record my music for years with the most basic of setups (Journal of Retreat was almost fully recorded on it), but once I got it revived, it was obvious I needed a new system.

I set out to start building a whole new recording studio in February, but soon after ordering the computer I was, as you may have heard by now, robbed blind. It’s now mid-May, and I’ve only recently been able to replace all the equipment and instruments that was lost in some form or fashion enough where I can begin building the studio again.

I now have everything I need to start demoing out new songs (there are so many, of varying colors and shapes and in many forms of incompleteness) but the new hardware has not been making it easy for me. Once I get one thing working another fails. The pieces are there but they have yet to sync up to where I can actually create some tracks! This has been going on for a few weeks and it is beginning to drive me a bit crazy.

With all these unfinished songs in me, it is only a matter of time before I simply explode, shooting verses and stray choruses in every direction- song shrapnels piercing houses, children, and any nearby vehicles.

Hold my hand as I’m lowered into studio hibernation mode…

May 3, 2012 emblemIndieGogo Campaign success, thanks, and a new friend

A NOTE FROM DUP:

Hi everybody,

Now that our IndieGoGo campaign has ended successfully, I wanted to send out a big huge huggy THANK YOU to everyone involved in DupFest and the compensation for the loss of my equipment back in February. Between the campaign, the benefit, a little insurance money (emphasis on little, the bastards…), and many generous donations of equipment (Jeremy, Thomas, Donnie, Jonathan, and my brother Lee, who built me two pedals), I’ve financially recovered about what I lost, give or take a few hundred dollars- which is amazing! I haven’t felt so grateful for friends, family and my community for a long time. I have already bought back a lot of the things that were lost and easily replaceable, so I’m ready to move on…

In fact, if you haven’t seen my new guitar, I’ve attached a picture. She’s a beautiful 2000(ish) Rickenbacker 330 Semi Hollow Body. I’ve got a lead on finding a bass very similar to the Univox I lost- and at a steal of a price, too. So soon all will be a little more settled and I can go about making music again.

Again: thank, thank, thank you for being so incredibly supportive exactly when I needed it. I hope to share some new music with you all by the end of the year so you can hear the fruits of your generosity.

Cheers,
Dup
