• Used this Taylor on my folky song “Coy McCoy’s Devious Ploy”: song.link/i/1625535…

  • New🎵– a collab with another artist. It’s a chill-rock cover of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”. It’s not true to the original – we experimented with sound and arrangement. I play electric solo guitar, bass, “drums”, some back vocals. She did the rest. Listen at song.link/i/1675138…

  • I call this short piece Ebb and Flow and it’s obviously inspired by Classical music.

  • Something new that I discovered in macOS. Hovering over the green button will show a menu with full-screen options. Maybe I knew that.  BUT if you hold the Option key, the menu gives regular zoom options, including tiling 🤯. Option-Click on the green button will perform Zoom.

  • Sometimes App Store release notes have funny synchronicities. Like Twitter feeds used to have.

  • I wonder what would happen if I posted some of my funny short music videos, like the one below, on LinkedIn. In order to lighten up people’s scrolling through same-sounding posts from self-proclaimed “thought leaders” www.youtube.com/shorts/7R…

  • If you have a cat and dog — a cat thinks that’s it’s a god. And it thinks the dog is opposite — a dog.

  • The snow accumulated on the back of the chair with a perfect design. Rounded corners, great height. Almost makes me wanna sit in it.

  • 🎵 🎸 🐕 A short song from your pet - “A Proud Chow Chow”

  • Plans for Apparent Software for when Apple allows sideloading of apps.

  • Sadly, JetBrains is sunsetting AppCode. I’ve used this IDE on and off for many years. It’s got so much stuff that put it way beyond Xcode. At the same time, it was also lagging in some respect, and Apple’s speed of change with its tooling was probably hard to keep up with.

  • Misread “Return to In-Person Work” in an article title as “Return to In-Prison Work”.

  • 🤖 In the future, we’ll all just want to live our lives as pets of AI robots, who will take care of us and love us unconditionally.

  • 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.
