Chasing Andromeda 3


Mansfield USA   Jan 2010  

Artist Bio

Influences:   First one I remember...Sly and the Family Stone Since then, in no particular order...David Byrne, Prokofiev, Adrian Belew, Devo, Todd Rundgren, Keith Jarrett, Carlos Santana, Bjork, Jaco Pastorius, The Clash, David Holsinger, Thelonious Monk, Ravel, George Clinton, Jean-Luc Ponty, Miles Davis, Bill Chase, Portishead, Chick Corea Those are probably the most significant and the most obvious in my music.

Michael Michalski, a.k.a. Chasing Andromeda here. I, I am never quite sure what is going to come out of my head. If I hear it, I write it. It usually has synths in it and it often has quite a few layers to it. But it might not have either.

Enjoy and have a great February!

2016 Goals
It has been three years since I last "won" and that streak is going to come to an end this year.

My album is called "Utterances". I don't know exactly what it is going to sound like other than it is going to be centered around twisted, mangled, bent and otherwise manipulated vocal samples.

There will probably be synthesizers involved. You know, probably.

I am going to work in a bit different manner this time around. It's probably closer to the point of FAWM. I am going to try to post 15 ideas as quickly as possible and then flesh them out over the course of the month. Hopefully it will be fun for you to listen to them as they go through metamorphosis. Part of the reason for this is I changed my workflow this year and writing and mixing are now two entirely separate processes. I think I get better results this way, but the production quality of my initial writing sessions will be lower than in the past.

Have a great month and thanks for visiting!

    Ha ha! I can play piano...if it's to a click and I can cut and paste the midi over and over again.

    I'm a very fake piano player.

    Thanks Michael, glad you're liking the tunes so far. Hope I can keep up one a day for a while! I usually find the beginning quite easy, but it gets more difficult over time.

    Hey Michael! You are right, we really should get round to collaborating some time, I'd like that. This month is looking pretty crowded so I'm nervous to promise collabs in case I don't complete them. Maybe 50/90 or even - *gasps* - off-season?

    Heya! Just sampled "Tongue Tied," sounds awesome. I actually really enjoy this style of music, with or without lyrics. It's almost like trance, but not quite. Nice. Have a good FAWM!

    So, @robynmackenzie mentioned in a post that she thought you and I would put together a nice collab. I went thru your soundcloud and I love what I heard. I'd be game for a collab if you're interested.
