Come with me on a musical journey.. we'll visit the old and the new.. the popular and the undiscovered.. that which moves the body.. and that which moves the mind and soul.. the sublime and that which fits no category.. and hopefully, you'll learn to appreciate music as much as I do, or at least expand your listening horizons!
Stop No. 1
Below you will find a video of ADEM CREW (a. k. a. Adem Show) dancing in a form known as "Popping" and that could best be described as "liquid robot" -to an EDM remix of the Mortal Kombat game theme music. We're leading off here because the visual movement of the dancers are directly tied to specific sequences in the music. Watching how a dancer interprets a song can sometimes help you notice little ear candy moments that you otherwise might miss. It's a good way to enhance your enjoyment of any song. You just have to stop and pay attention while you watch and/or listen!

Stop No. 2
Now let's jump back in time.. you're going to need a decent set of headphones or some external speakers that can relay left and right channel separation.. unless you're mobile device is capable of it. Here we have "Moving in Stereo" by The Cars with some very noticeable differences between the left and right speakers (a. k. a. panning). If you listen to just the left channel, then just the right channel, you essentially wind up with 2 different songs. Ear candy brought to you by the artists/producers/mixers!
Other stereophonic classics:
"Radar Love" by Golden Earring
by Jimi Hendrix
Stop No. 3
This time we're going heavy with "Albatross" by Corrosion of Conformity from the Deliverance album. Notice the super -heavy drum intro.. the power and grit, like a driving force.. the way the guitar screams in at the 2:34 mark and matches the vocals for a second.. the dual guitars after the solo and the flourishing finish! What else did you notice?
Other songs with great guitar entrances:
Here's one of my latest creations, "Sandstorm (Bless the Maker)". Those of you who know me, know that I'm a really big fan of the Dune universe created by Frank Herbert and continued by his son Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. I was playing around in FL Studios one day, and created this somewhat middle-eastern sound, reminding me of desert-dwelling, ergo, Dune. One thing led to another, and as Geoff Tate said in the Queensryche song, "Someone Else".. "Songs slipped out, as only they know how.."
Listen for the subtle things.. the rhythm of the bongos.. the thumping of the bass drum (like a Fremen thumper).. the volume dips and swells.. what mood does this song convey to you?
Feel free to continue on to Stop No.4 (link below), peruse the rest of the site, or re-trace your other stops:
My songs are composed mostly as background music--something to listen to while you work, run errands, knock out some chores, etc. They're similar to classical music in that respect, but with things I enjoy, such as deep bass grooves, "ear candy" nuggets like panning (stereo) and fades (in/out), and, of course, bits of guitar sprinkled throughout! So grab your favorite headphones or hook up your best wi-fi speaker and get your groove on!
New EP "Back View 2020":
More Ambient2pt0 from JiMiG2pt0 (this ain't your Daddy's ambient!) Atmospheric collages mixed with hip-hop style drums, heavy bass, and just enough distorted guitar to remind you of his metal background.
"Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."
-Dylan Thomas (1914 - 1953)

"I love music. For me, music is morning coffee. It's mood medicine. It's pure magic. A good song is like a good meal -I just want to inhale it and then share a bite with someone else.
