My name is Bill Ray and I do a lot of things. Having been raised within a creative arts environment (Father being a Master Photographer/all around DIY wizard and my Mother a Master Photographer and graphic artist) found myself becoming somewhat of an Autodidact with the ability to "figure stuff out".
I create websites and "interesting content" in the digital and musical realms.
In 2006 I was recording an album for an artist at Spotless Digital in Ocean Beach, CA and asked Sean Power, engineer extraordinaire "could I have ten minutes of time to warm up, and will you record me?" And so I banged out two "Rhythmic Sketches"; basically, songs without melodic content. Wireframes if you will, as dictated by percussive dynamics.
I will delve into the whole story later, but for now I wanted to hip you to my newest album release from my project "The Odd Get Even"
Imagine, if you will a giant...no GINORMOUS "Information Desk" that's smack in the middle of a sea of humanity. There's queues ("Subreddits" or "Subs") for subjects no matter how arcane, vulgar, pedestrian or specialized that allow pretty much anyone to come in and offer their knowledge to those asking questions about said subject matter and a comment section under each post to further the conversation. Thing is, you don't even have to be an expert in the subject in which you find yourself enlightening the masses. Welcome to Reddit, the juggernaut that is owned by the Conde Nast corporation and has a worldwide readership.
Denizens of Reddit ("Redditors") are largely in the teen-to-25yr old bracket, but it's far from a "kiddie website". The demographic spans all generations. Reddit has done some pretty amazing things in its lifespan; the average Redditor seems to have some semblance of altruism to their personae and overall, it's a positive experience. Except when it's not.
I had a great time at NAMM! Please enjoy a couple of videos while I parse all the other stuff to present to you. :D
