  • Meet Maggie Cocco – VoyageMichigan

    A five minute read’s worth of highly condensed, little filtered perceptions and intentions. The exercise of summing yourself up for public consumption is a whole thing, and then to see what is essentially you on paper…the cocktail of emotions is stomach churning.  I had the challenge and opportunity of synthesizing my career, outlook, projects, and […]

    Any seasoned performer knows that you don’t waste time, money, and resources recording a song so fresh that isn’t fleshed out, no matter how excited you are about it. I am seasoned. I know this.

  • Mid Recording at Analog Road: LIKE A MOTH

    Mid Recording at Analog Road: LIKE A MOTH

    Like a grandfather clock, every Wednesday from 10am some facet of LIKE A MOTH resounds from Anzac Road. Unlike a grandfather clock, it often continues for 5, 6, 7, 8 hours. I secretly hope that the private studio’s neighbors are suitably melancholic, romantic, indignant, or horny such that the music of the day isn’t completely […]

    Hiriwa’s Encore

    The past couple weeks have been a blur between Girls Rock Detroit Summer Camp and a series of shows in Auckland. And while everything moved ahead as planned (and I do plan to debrief on those and the remaining July shows), they took a back seat in my mind as a friend and colleague, guitarist […]

  • Music Education: What is “real time” and why is it important?

    Developing an ability to make and execute decisions “in real time” is far and away music’s most useful and underrated complex skill. “Real time” is in reference to decisions made within a time frame, often split seconds, imposed by momentum. A common “real world” scenario that involves “real time” decision making, for example, is whilst […]
