Fruits, Veggies, and Spoons



Today was a fun one! I have been wanting to do a “ktm” using fruits and veggies for awhile. This morning inspiration struck and I was off to the grocery store. šŸ™‚ I added the spoons because when I asked for suggestions on some items to use for an upcoming “ktm” one of my friends suggested spoons. Soooo, this morning I spent some time on youtube trying to figure out the correct way to play a pair of spoons. I hope you enjoy it! As always, please feel free to leave comments, ask questions about sounds, or make suggestions! Thank you so much for listening. If ya dig it, share it! In this recording I used: apples, grapefruits, spoons, a knife, a coconut, carrots, cherries, and a peeler.

Spring Chime



This track is a little more “meditative” than usual. When I was having breakfast this morning I could hear the birds singing and it was such a beautiful day that it reminded me of Springtime back home…Sitting outside with a good book, a slight breeze, and the soft melodies of wind chimes in the distance.
I started this track by “sampling” a bird that was outside my window, I then filled up some glasses and just went for it. I hope you enjoy it! You will probably want to wear some headphones to catch all of the nuances. If you dig it, share it! Also, would LOVE IT if you followed my blog! And, of course, feel free to leave comments or suggestions.
In this track I am using: A Cork, Container Lids, several glasses with different water heights, and toothpicks. Thank you so much for your support and have an amazing day!

The Kitchen Shuffle



This week I am back in the actual kitchen! (Of our new apartment) In our kitchen we have an amazing pot and pan rack that has beenĀ enticingĀ me for the last Ā 2 months. With the help of some plastic chopsticks and some very patient neighbors I was able to put together a little shuffle for you this week. Hope you like it! (Watch out for the ending…)

As “kitchen table music” progresses it becomes more and more challenging to think of new sounds and ideas. Your feedback is much appreciated! If you have any ideas, thoughts, or even want to collaborate on something let me know! As always, thank you so much fr checking this out! In this track I used: Chopsticks, a book, oatmeal, a blender, Ā pans, pots, measuring cups, a stool, and a cookie sheet. šŸ™‚

Bathroom Break



As “kitchen table music” continues, I am trying to find musical inspiration in every room of the house (Or in my case, “the apartment”) and not just the kitchen. After creating the office piece I felt like it would be interesting to hear what themes I might be able to extract from other rooms. I decided today to use the bathroom. (Yeay!) For this track I used: A toothbrush, the bathroom cabinet, a toilet paper roll, the toilet lid, the faucet, a pipe, a cleaning brush, a hair brush, a shampoo bottle, a box of matches, and a plastic cup. Enjoy! Comments and suggestions are always welcomeā€¦ If ya dig it, share it. šŸ™‚

Boxing match


Happy New Year! The holidays and everything that has been involved with getting aĀ new apartment has severely delayed #4. But here it is! I found inspiration in the moving and packing that has been going on these past couple weeks. In this recording I am using only boxes, bags, a roll of tape, and a couple champagne glasses (My wife and I toasted to our new apartment last night, and I thought it was alsoĀ appropriateĀ to echo the cheers from New Year’s Eve!). If you have any thoughts or suggestions for future “kitchen table music” ideas, let me know! Thank you so much for checking it out. šŸ™‚ *For best results use headphones!*

9 to 5 (at the office)


Installment #3! This one took a little longer than usual to get out into cyber space… my computer decided to die. (sad face) Because my wife’s coworker was able to help us fix it, it has been at her office for the past 10 days. I decided that this gave me a unique opportunity to have a special installment of “kitchen table musc” – at the Office! I want to give a special thanks to for letting me use their office space and letting me be really annoying for a little while. šŸ˜‰

In this track I am using: A computer keyboard, scissors, 5 mugs, a drinking glass, a metal magazine holder, a metal tissue box, a rubber band, a pen, and a cup of paper clips.

To the wind


This is officially the secondĀ installment of “kitchen table music”!Ā This track was made using a jug (and its cap), a beer bottle, a knife, a book, a piece of paper, a teacup, a mixer, and my kitchen table. All of these items were found on my kitchen table this morning…there were some interesting developments. Hope you like what you hear!
