New Album Out Now!
I have been interested in the steampunk aesthetic since college. Recently I was rebuilding a bass guitar and debating if I was going to give it a steampunk look and I got to thinking, “what would electronic music sound like if it was made steampunk?” So I began with a couple songs from my first album and I found it to be too much fun. So, fast forward to now and here is Steamtronic, a collection of my favorite songs from all of my previous albums but not as electronica or techno compositions. Instead I bring you a collection of modern orchestral arrangements ranging from soft and expressive to aggressive and dynamic.
I am an artist, musician and composer. I am Banmier.
I love to experiment with nontraditional instrumentation and sounds. You never know where you will find new inspiration.
It’s always a pleasure working with Fuse Communications.
On these projects I typically create and layout Sound FXs to match the animations. On some of the more recent commercials I have also composed the background music tracks.
FL Studio Tutorials
FL Studio has been my DAW of choice since version 4. I have been able to grow as a producer with FL Studio as it has developed into the powerhouse it is today.
I had a wonderful opportunity to teach a class on music recording and production as part of the Summer Music Workshop at Longs Chapel United Methodist Church.
In our class we experimented in sound discovery using some of my favorite junk yard finds. Each student picked a sound to record after which we, as a group, setup samples in a sequencer and produced a short demo track.
All the sounds in this video are the kids recordings.
Sound transforms the way we perceive visual images. That’s why this was a fun project! Everything in this video was created using a video camera, some fake flowers in a vase, and a laser.
Featured song on my latest album, Lost Dreams
Featured on the album, From Gyre to Banmier.
