VIDEO / SONG: Red

It was May 29, 2017. A Monday. I had some musical pain I had to get out of me. So I rolled out of bed  that night at 11:30 and went into the studio. I opened up the DAW on my already booted computer, checked a the mic and MIDI keyboard for levels and hit…


VIDEO: Bright New Thing

The idea was to make a simple, stop-motion video loop to act as a placeholder for the song “Bright New Thing’”… and I got a little carried away. I bet if you watch it 10 times you’ll still find something new in it. Created in  Stop Motion Studio on my iPhone and assembled in iMovie.


New Songs From a New Album

The time has come to finally share with the world some of what I’ve been musically working on for the past 3 years. It is a rather ambitious project that spans two albums worth of music and some other art adventures that will keep me occupied for some time. But the world is crazier than…


SONG: (Morphallaxis) Stars Undersea

(Morphallaxis) Stars Underseaby George Zhen “All the doubt that creeps in deep in the nightIs there to help us practice morphallaxis…” 30Over last summer, I was tooling around with some ideas in electronic music, specifically the idea of blending the unison, group vocal sound of something like The Mouglies or even Of Monsters and Men…


SONG: Tanwood Drice (What Forever Means)

Tanwood Drive (What Forever Means) by George Zhen “There’s more to living than just bring aliveIt’s the summer sun lighting up Tanwood Drive…” I rarely do this kind of song. But I had too. See, my in-laws were reaching their 60th wedding anniversary and everyone in the family was writing these nice memory letters and…


VIDEO BLOG: The Accessible Studio Tour

I’m excited to bring you my first ever video blog. I figured I’d start out by giving you a tour of my home studio, complete with a bit of an explanation about how I get around using various assistive technologies like screen magnifiers and the like. Let me know what you think….


OFFICIAL VIDEO: “In Transit”

My dear friend Rick Myers, who was instrumental in working with and managing my first real band, Some People’s Children back ion the 80’s, has directed a video for the title track of my album, “In Transit”. I think it is pretty cool. Rick, of course, can do a much better job describing the process…


Shutterbugs and Old Birds

Creatively, one can find inspiration in many forms. The muse is fleeting and unpredictable. When I was putting together the first tracks for the album that would eventually be entitled “In Transit”  back in 2009, there was no thematic thread to pull on. This runs in stark contrast to my previous release, “Dust of the…


On Final With “In Transit”

5I figure it’s about time for me to write a bit about this album thing I am working on. Let’s face it – I’m always working on an album. Sometimes it is in the forefront of my freespace, other times it sits dormant for a month or two. I’m always composing, either way. I’m not…


In 512 Megabytes of Loving Memory

I know it’s just an old computer. But understand that to me, my computer is my gateway to the world, a palette for creativity and something of a constant companion. This old girl, “Bulldog” was her name, was built for me by a friend nearly 10 years ago. She was a 1.3 Gigahertz Athlon (sorry,…
