Day of Mars

it’s been awhile since danny williams hung out with me on a tuesday and made strange sounds on something electric, but this week he surprised me. fortunately there was a camcorder to capture a few moments of his visit. shine on you crazy diamond.
this is an archive of sound and music recorded on tuesdays in 2011. that’s when danny williams and i recorded guitars, keyboards, custom gizmos, and various thinkgeek gadgets just to see what would happen. day of mars is a rough latin translation for tuesday.

the hard limit
scary carnival

we also recorded a small audio series: dr. sleepwalk and captain fuzzbot’s replay locomotive. it was a show where danny and i talked about our most recent (and not so recent) blog posts. my personal inspiration for this show is an 80′s podcast that i’ve listened to for years.

  1. Dave,

    I am assuming you’ve looked into Foley art/editing. Since you do videos, it’s easy to see you merging Day of Mars w/Foley. Imagine what could be done when you add in the new theremin device you got.

  2. Dave,

    I was just listening to you guys make drinks at Homer’s and noticed what a rhythm was made using the grinder & stirring the liquid in the stainless steel thingy (I am not versed in coffeeania). Have you thought of bringing in your recording stuff one day & capturing the sounds of beverage-making?
