Olivia Broadfield Remix Competition

Hey guys! I’ve just put an entry into Olivia Broadfield/TUAW‘s “Say” remix competition! As some of you know, I’m a huge fan of Propellerhead‘s Reason software, and while Reason 5 has been pretty great to me, after using the trial of Reason 6 to do this competition I’m simply not going back. Being able to have live audio go directly into Reason is amazing enough, but the changes to the work flow are also stunning — this remix took me less than 6 hours!

The great thing about this competition is that the winner gets a free, fully licensed copy of Reason 6, as well as a Balance input/mixing board, which would be a welcome replacement for my busted MobilePre (which I’ve dropped one too many times, methinks).

So if you’ve got a SoundCloud account, head over to the track and leave a comment! There are over 425 entries in the competition, so anything you can do to help me stand out will be awesome. And if you don’t have a SoundCloud account, head over and give it a listen anyway! I hope you like it!

Live Performance at Naked Chocolate!

Totally not the piano I’m gonna play on.

For those of you near Philly, I’ll be performing solo piano at the Naked Chocolate in Center City at 18th and Chestnut next Thursday, July 23rd from 8pm to 10pm. I’ll be playing selections from Auditorium, some original improvisational pieces, and a couple previews of songs I’m working on for our new projects. Come on down and hang out with us! Will’s gonna be there handing out some Auditorium swag. And tons of chocolate. I don’t think I can emphasize how much chocolate these people have. I recommend the Mexican hot chocolate, but hey, I like spicy things.

On a side note, since someone keeps pestering us (I’m looking at you, hipster glasses…), we’ve finally bitten the bullet and gotten a Twitter account, so those of you that want to keep up with us every waking hour of every day can finally do so in a socially acceptable manner by visiting twitter.com/cipherprime.

And finally, following on the theme of eroding personal boundaries, we’ve added an Upcoming Events list to our sidebar, which lists events on our public iCal, which you can also feel free to subscribe to. Take that, Internet! Hope to see you next Thursday!
