Recent Athens, GA transplant to Norman, OK looking to meet musicians and artists in the area. I spent 12 years making music in this duo https://icometoshanghai.bandcamp.com/
Tired of sitting in a studio all day trying to make my own ideas happen. Ready to collaborate with other people, play shows, and generally be of use to anyone I click with. And even if we don’t click, I need to meet some people.
I’m a good drummer for anything hypnotic or feel oriented. I have an acoustic kit and a few drum machine options. I’m a classy bass player. 4 strings, flat wound. Good piano/keys player. I don’t own many synths, but previous band mate had a synth disease, so I’m well-versed. I can space out with an electric guitar or finger pick an acoustic. I sing too (check out “Stranger” on that Bandcamp link). Im a good musical problem solver. I like to radically rewrite and mutate other people’s music. I’m a decent engineer and mixer. I recorded and mixed all the music in that link.
I grew up loving the Flaming Lips, Pink Floyd, Can, Velvet Underground, etc. Classic soul music from the 60s is my safe space. I love various kinds of electronic music. Aphex Twin was a big thing for me. Nicolas Jaar. The Field. I went through a noise pop period. Deerhoof were a big deal for me. Broadcast. I love dream pop. The Cocteau Twins. Beach House. I love left field modern pop music. Sophie, PC Music, Charlie XCX. Chamber pop. I love Julia Holter. I spent most of the last decade sucking down gigs of hip hop. I love modern Atlanta rappers and producers. Offset and Metro Boomin. Gucci. West coast up and comers. Kenny beats. 03 Greedo.
I’m not interested in getting into some band that’s trying to “make it,” but I’d love to help people make great records or participate in a community of artists. I feel pretty isolated here. Hit me up. —Robert
