    I'm Huge

    Someone sent me a screenshot of my name and mug on the MTV soundtrack homepage for Real World/Road Rules Challenge. This must mean I am up there with Lil Wayne and Britney - HUGE!!!! I'm gonna hit up Jay-Z and see if I can buy his Yacht from him too. If I get it, you're all invited to my Yacht party.

    A big "WOW!" on the replies to the "name my blog" post. Thanks for throwing up your ideas (gross...) We'll go over them and get some results posted for you next week.

    It's time for me to get back to big pimpin' -

    Klayton Q&A

    How boring. "Klayton Q&A" is the weak attempt I took at naming this type of post. It's too early in the morning for me to be thinking straight. I will (as often as time permits) be posting answers to some of your questions right here. The problem I'm having right away is the title of this section sucks gonads - so I need your help:

    I'll repost this at Myspace for those who don't have accounts here at Celldweller.com. (thanks to all the glorious spammers around, you have to create an account to post or we'd be eyeballs deep in spam.) So in the comments, suggest a name for these posts so I have a consistent, cool and catchy title everytime I throw up more answers to your questions. Well, I won't "throw up" your questions, that would be gross. Myself and management will pick a name that we think is coolest and we'll mail you a "Soundtrack for the Voices in My Head Vol. 01" CD and digital versions of all 3 Celldweller Remix Competition releases. I already came up with "Time Out with Uncle Klay" and "Klayton takes some questions you asked, answers them and then posts them on his frickin' Klog" but for some reason, those just weren't doing it for me. I'm more into something like the "Klaypril Fools" joke Derick Eisenhardt suggested.

    You start getting creative and I'll start by posting a few answers:

    Kokonoe: After releasing the second Celldweller album, do you plan on making more electronic tracks under your own name, like Beginning of the End and Kemikal? It would be great if you released a full album of that kind of material as a side project.

    "Soundtrack for the Voices in My Head Vol. 01" was a collection of pieces that i pulled from hundreds of demos that fit more in the Film/TV/Video game world, as far as their sound and composition. I suck at math, so let's figure this one out on virtual 'paper':

    100's - 20 = 100's

    Yep, just as i thought. i have hundreds of crappy demos still sitting around. As it turns out a majority of them fall more into the "electronic" category. I could easily compile 3 albums worth of my version of 'electronic' music from just the demos i have, but they all require work - some a lot more than others. On a base level, i would LOVE to finish some of these up and get them off my back, but on the other hand, i'm still in an arm wrestling match with Father Time and he's kicking my ass. So this was all really just a long drawn out way of saying "Yes, i would love to release an album of electronic music, but not until the time is right." I will probably do it under "Celldweller" and not just Klayton and i may approach it one song at a time instead of a full blown album. No promises, but i certainly desire to make this happen at some point.

    Damian: Did you still use the equipments like korg ms2000, nordlead2, access virus on your productions? or you use soft synths and plugins?

    Yes, i do still use a fair amount of hardware synths in my tracks. I do love softsynths and effect plugins, but there is no question that hardware has a different sound. There is a low end that I can get out of my Moog Voyager or Virus TI that I cannot seem to get from a plugin. Also, a trick to getting things to sound good and separated in a final mix is variety. Mixing up hardware and software is our friend. This does not mean that if you don't have hardware that you can't make great sounding music. I personally just prefer to use both.

    Back in Black(star)

    Glad you guys liked the pic in my last post. I wanted to show you an updated pic of me wearing my new "Git-R-Done" tee shirt I picked up at a Larry the Cable Guy concert last night. (Does stand up comedy constitute a "concert"? Who knows, but makes me feel all rock-n-roll to say it.)

    I'm in the studio right now, working on Wish Upon a Blackstar. (I took a pic of an expensive piece of gear to prove it, bc I'm a prick that way.) If you're bored waiting for updates from me, you can go check out a list of some of my gear right here to help pass the time.

    Going to work some basslines for "Louder Than Words". I'll keep you updated...

    About 10 minutes ago I printed the final mix of my remix of BT's "Suddenly." Bret (Blue Stahli) finalized his mix of BT's "Feed The Monster" earlier today. So it's official - tomorrow we both go back to working on our albums.

    I'm thinking up some ways to keep you guys updated from the studio while I'm working on "Wish Upon a Blackstar" so stay tuned here and join my Twitter page if you haven't already. I have a few updates and a bunch of your answered questions waiting to be posted, so I'll get to it as soon as my ass can catch up. Did it just sound like I used the words "ass" and "ketchup" in the same sentence?

    Video of Tom Salta (Atlas Plug) discussing his most recent game score: H.A.W.X

    Just had an update come in from Tom Salta (FiXT artist Atlas Plug) and I wanted to pass this vid along. Check out Tom's stuff at the FiXT Store (Including the "Red Steel" soundtrack) and make sure to let him know you can't wait for new Atlas Plug!

    Celldweller + Blue Stahli + Sebastian R. Komor = Race To Witch Mountain

    Damn, I really can smell what the Rock is cookin'. (Wouldn't that kinda suck to live with that tagline for the rest of your life?) Got an e-mail last night confirming that "Birthright (Beta 1.0)" is being used for the Official Trailers. There is also a Blue Stahli track and a Sebastian R. Komor (Squarehead) track confirmed for the trailer as well. There is a good chance these could be spread across mulitple trailers and not necessarily all being used in one, but I won't really know that until I actually see it, or someone tells me how it plays out.

    We at FiXT want to personally thank Walt, Mickey, Donald, The Rock, Minnie and HSM3 for allowing three FiXT artists into the tightly knit fold. Oh, and Goofy too (sorry dude.)

    I haven't seen the movie yet, but i definitely will. I watched the original "Escape to Witch Mountain" 500 times when I was a kid. I wanted powers like the kids had so i could ward off the bullies in school that were regularly beating my ass. And I absolutely had to have a flying saucer. I mean, check out these effects: they will blow your mind.

    I am going to take Bret out for another celebratory lunch for landing a trailer. This time, I think we'll go a little more upscale. I'm thinking Arby's. (now that's a tagline I CAN live with the rest of my life.) It's a shame Sebastian doesn't live closer bc the 3 of us would celebrate in style, Apple Turnovers and all.

    Update from the studio

    I need an ear break, so I'll let my typing fingers carry some of the load while my ears take a nap. Today was a good day as far as music is concerned. Had a breakthrough on my remix last night/this morning (which usually just bleeds together with a few hours of something called "attempted sleep" in between.) I think I *may* have my remix of BT's "Suddenly" wrapped as early as tomorrow. Then I get back to wishing upon a blackstar, y'all...

    I threw up a screen grab for you of the remix session. It's still a total mess and you're only seeing half the tracks on the screen. I shrunk the track size as small as it would let me, but there is still another 40-50 tracks of "Klaytanic destruction" you can't see. Sorry if any of you get hit with a knarly case of blue balls due to the lack of any real information, but when i get back to "Wish Upon a Blackstar" I'll be doing little tutorial videos and screen grabs galore. There are some really cool companies making some really cool hardware & software and it would be downright selfish for me to invest my entire life into gathering this information and not sharing it. You may be asked to share something in return, but I really have no idea what to ask for. You guys are creative, you decide.

    Go join my Twitter page. <---- doesn't that seem random?

    Ok, I'm going to go stick my head between some speakers for another 8-10 hours. I hope I don't fall asleep at work again - my drool keeps shorting out my keyboards.

    "Sorry" & Last Call for Free FiXT Tracks

    Ok, I'm officially sorry. Geez, can't a guy get away with pulling a "Klaypril Fools" joke and sending you to the HSM3 page for the new Celldweller album? I really didn't think anyone would fall for it truthfully. I mean, i would give you guys at least 1 day notice if the album was actually ready to drop, after all the time I've been working on it. Ya know, that reminds me that I haven't even told you how I will be releasing the new record - Like MLK Jr. "I have a dream..." I am still wrapping up my BT "Suddenly" remix and will Klog your arteries and the synapses of your cranial nerves with "Wish Upon a Blackstar" release plans as soon as I'm done remixing.

    If it's any consolation to you, I completely bought the farm yesterday too when I foolishly headed over to Bret Stahli's "Blog" (wait that doesn't work. BLue stahli blOG = BLOG which really is the same thing as a standard BLOG. You guys will have to suggest something more creative to Bret, so head over there and help him name his "BLOGs") Yeah, i got sucked into the Blue Stahli vortex and clicked the shiny purple link. I cannot bear to tell you what happened next - the only way to know is to do it yourselves. I warn you though, my heart died inside my chest and I peed my pants a little too. Not a pretty sight.

    Jimmy Rhodes also wanted me to let you guys know this is the last week to grab almost 40 free tracks from FiXT (This is NOT a Klaypril Fools joke - I swear on a basket of kittens.) Half of them are Blue Stahli tracks and then other goodies from Atlas Plug, Squarehead/Sebastian Komor, Technical Itch, lvl, Kearly, Remorse Code & Subkulture. There are also some free FiXT Wallpapers too, thanks to Travis Ray. "Get 'em while the gettin's good." (I heard that in some movie based in the southern US and knew I just had to quote it somewhere. Finally, I found my chance and took it.)

    I'm off to remix and play with these adorable kittens. Yeah, it's all fun and games til they start poopin'.

    FiXT Spotlight is Live

    The FiXT Artist Spotlight Feature I've been rambling on about is finally live. Go here. I've included some answers to some of your questions and even threw together a rough collage of some early construction pics of my new studio.

    The only question nobody asked me (and I'm kinda bummed) is how I learned to do all those awesome guitar solos in every single song I write. I just love shredding for 10 minutes per track to really show the world my skills. Since nobody asked, I'm just going to show you how I learned. (Nobody can ever accuse me of not knowing the Satch Boogie. dammit.) Enjoy -
