I think I've found a cure for the empty basement blues. I was reading Wired magazine( really just looking at the pictures and dreaming that I knew what all that techspeak meant), while waiting for my slice of 6 meat, 7 cheese slice of pizza the other day when I came across an advertisement for another phone with too many functions. One of the men featured in the ad was Daniel Zaccagnino, who is the CEO of a company called Indaba Music.
Indaba Music is " a web platform that enables musicians all over the world to create music together in online recording sessions". Wow...I thought to myself, no more dredging the molding fogies on Craigslist for a possible collaborator on my musical endeavors, no more drummers showing up at my place who make Meg White look like Stewart Copeland.....so I took a look, signed up and it was as easy as that. Apparently its FREE and you can do everything from your browser. You can create a profile which allows musicians to find you and vice versa.
Coincidentally, my pal Isorski http://isorski.blogspot.com/ was just saying the other day that he'd like to collaborate with me because he heard how fucking RAWK I am, and I suggested we start with some lightweight jingles we could try to sell to companies like Massengill, Flomax and Playtex. We will be getting started on this soon just to get our feet wet.
Now I can just lay back and indent the couch even more as I'm nailing a spandex worthy
high C on the laptop while adorned with a cookie crumb necklace and kicking it in my tightest briefs. Its genius!
Seriously, though. This sounds like a next step for me. I demand you check it out and stretch those creative muscles again. Go to Indaba Music and find the stage again on your laptop.
