• The view this evening. I barely know the basics of hockey rules. But my daughter sings the Canadian anthem before the game (with her school choir) and we’re staying to watch the game.

  • Unexpectedly, I came up with some nice jazz lines yesterday. 🎵🎸

  • 🎵 I released a new rock song yesterday. You might hear some Van Halen 🎸 influences in it. 80ies-rock sound. Welcome “The Perfect Band” to the world. Very proud of it.

  • 🎵A new musical idea I had late last night. Feels kind of like classical piano étude to me but on a 🎸.

  • I usually forget to record myself when I’m actually recording 🎸 parts for a song. In the case, at least, I did record. In part, in order not to forget how to play. Occasionally I share work-in-progress with followers, like here.🎵

  • When I come up with musical ideas, I would often make quick recordings of them, before I forget the sound or the fingering. I can come to them later again to continue working on them, if they prove promising on a later day. This is one such recording. 🎵

  • There are good mentors and there are meantors. < /joke>

  • The Perfect Band

    My new single, “The Perfect Band”, is getting ready to be released on Spotify and other services on Nov 4th. It’s a proper 80ies-influenced rocker.

    This song started from a simple idea of “The band that never met.” The writing of the first version of the lyrics and the music took only two days at the beginning of February 2022, but the recording process and, especially, the mixing took a long, long time.

    Personally, I’m very proud of this song, it’s the kind of song that would be fun to perform live, and the sound of the mix reflects this a bit.

    If you use Spotify, please spare a moment to pre-save it at https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/jacobgorban/the-perfect-band-2 so that it’s in your library when it gets released.

    I’ll have more updates about it soon.

  • You know ASICS shoes 👟 ? There are also FPGA shoes but they run slower.

  • 🎵What a nice surprise! The pre-released songs were fantastic. But it’s too late to listen to the album now. 🥺Tomorrow’s gonna have a tasty soundtrack. Snarky Puppy becomes one of my favorite music. I also can’t get over how they produce it all and their musicianship is 🤯

  • I’m not watching the Apple event live today (I have an online course I have to attend) and it’ll be the first time in many years. Somehow, I’m not even bummed.

  • Do you know any owners of dogs with separation anxiety? There’s a method to train the dogs and my team developed an app for this. Started as a hackathon and we’ve released the POC on TestFlight. Video at https://t.co/4ytPQBolx9. Beta at https://t.co/07pqozsGdp

  • I saw a beautiful and impressive cloud formation yesterday.

  • Between the “Artists” apps (musician’s apps), Apple’s one is much worse than either Bandcamp, Spotify or Amazon. I need to kill it basically on every launch before it’ll actually succeed to fetch any data. Pathetic, really.

  • The video for my new song (acoustic singer-songwriter/folk) will premiere on YouTube soon at www.youtube.com/watch

  • I’m trying out Fastmail, to replace legacy Google Apps that I use for some of my domains. If you use(d) Fastmail, do you use their web / mobile apps or just connect your regular Mail.app or other client of choice?

  • Tonight I was recording vocals for a song that I started about a year and a half ago. I couldn’t sing it well then but believed that the song was worth better singing. Took an online course. Not finished but got much better. Tonight’s result is pretty good. Kid-approved, too 🎵

  • This kind of notification about Apple on LinkedIn cracks me up every time. Apple was mentioned in the news? No kidding?

  • 🎬 Over the last month or so, I was occasionally watching The Hobbit trilogy over the lunch break. Today I’ve started season 3. And no, I’ve never watched them before. Shame on me.
