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.
"Codex Tempore" is a musical collaboration that began between drummer Bill Ray in San Diego / Seattle and Tobias Weber in Germany. The tunes are composed from Bill Ray's extemporaneous drum performances ergo "Rhythmic Sketches". Says BR- "I play to a song in my head which is more of a "tuneless whistle", and Tobias comes up with things that make sense musically".(47)
"We take shitty songs and elevate them while we drag great tunes down a few notches and smash 'em all together..."
As of right now, I am a ghost on social media. My Facebook account, all 5000 friends and upwards of 2700 followers is now dark. So is my Twitter. Instagram? I was never really a user, although my account is floating around and I'll probably go turn that one off now that I think about it. Snapchat? Ugh. WHY. I never got that "hip". To me, it's just another way for someone to half-heartedly say "I messaged you on [insert social network here], and never heard back from you..." But it matters not, because my life is now rid of the divisive and frustrating entity that was, for a decade the start and finish of every one of my days and all points in between.(139)
Feel free to create with the ideas! If you want to use my work for commercial purposes, we can work something out. :D(92)
