Anything Can Fly

On November 22, 2011, in creation, music, by holotape

This weekend I participated in remixing a video.
I’d never done anything like this before, and I’ve only ever tried one remix (the Britney Spears one which can be found on my soundcloud page).
I made a rough version of the song after spending about 8 hours on Saturday staring at my monitors and sent it over to Alex Jones (among other things, cameraman and editor of Art Battle recap vids) to begin work on the editing. Everything was finalized on Sunday and uploaded late that night.

The results are pretty awesome:

I can’t wait to try something like this again!

Queen West Art Crawl Gala

On September 16, 2011, in djing, music, by holotape


I’m attempting to post from my phone, so this will be brief and potentially not pretty.

I’m DJing the Queen West Art Crawl Gala tonight at the Gladstone Hotel Ballroom.

1214 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON M6J 1J6

It starts at 9 and admission is free as far as I know.

I’ll be distributing a CD with a few new songs on it at the event. If you can’t attend, send me an email at matt-at-holotape-dot-net and I’ll give you a download link.

Art Battle 17

Art Battle 17

Art Battle 17 is approaching, and it will be one of my last for a while. I missed 16 for school, and will probably miss every Tuesday Art Battle until next Summer…sigh.

I will be at the Queen West Art Crawl gala in September/October though.

Art Battle 17 will be the last time I offer my “come home” CD.  It’s about a lot of personal stuff that happened over a year ago; time to move on.  I will continue to offer it as a download only, for $5 on my site.

At the Bottom vs. The Hypnoctopus

On June 25, 2011, in creation, djing, memories, music, by holotape

A recap video of AB12v13:

Art Battle 12 & 13 from Heads TO on Vimeo.

Alex did a great job editing this one. It truly excites me seeing cuts to my music.
The song in it is called At the Bottom, it was another that started as a DS-10 song.
At AB14, a dude came up to me while I was playing it and I told him he could download it on my site, but I guess I lied.
