And…..Done. Final Blog Post

0

It’s hard to believe I’ve been running my blog for 6 years now, even more difficult to believe that I’ve done 282 posts in that time period.  But, as they say, all good things must come to an end, and I’ve decided that now is a good time for me to step away from the blog and focus on other …

Things have been quiet on the blog front lately, I know. But, they’ve only been quiet these last few weeks because I’ve been crazy busy working on a new album.

Ableton Loop Review

I love it when something comes along and the timing just couldn’t be any better. For the last few months I’ve been in a bit of a creative rut, which as followers of my blog know is really not all that uncommon for me.

Inching Forward

Well, things are slowly marching towards my move to Luxembourg, even though we still don’t have a firm move date which is dragging things out a bit (waiting for our visas).  The process is going well for us so far otherwise, we sold our house without too much issue, and in the meantime have been slowly getting rid of all …

It’s been months in the process, but it’s finally official:  Inner Portal Studio is moving to Luxembourg!  While my wife and I love Seattle, we both felt lately it was time for a temporary change, and luckily an opportunity like this presented itself at the right time.
