Just reposting an inspirational/creative post I saw on Tumblr here: http://lacienegasmiled.tumblr.com/post/77598143356/as-jackson-couldnt-fluently-play-any-instruments
As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.
One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

Peter Jericho is currently working on his new album “First Generation” where “Bodi” the new single debuts. The inspiration behind “Bodi” came out of an unexpected trip back to Cameroon in December 2012 after he had not been home for over 10 years. Not only was he reunited with his family and old friends but he found himself inspired by the music and immersed in the culture. Read more
I finally decided to dive in and take the journey out to the ASCAP Expo this year. It truly was a rewarding and learning experience. I linked up with a TON of talented artists, producers, business folk, and creators. It was also nice to see some familiar faces from the iStandard Producers crew. Shot out to Brother El from the Makers of Sense, Amy Rodd, and anyone else who kept in contact. Needless to say, I plan on going back next year and every year after. So hit me up if you plan on going next year or want to see some of the highlights I have on DVD now from it. Highlights including Bruno Mars and the rest of The Smeezingtons talking about coming up as writers and their creative process, The Writer’s Jam where songwriters like Priscilla Renea sing their recent hit songs that are performed by some of today’s biggest artists, Ryan Tedder, and of course the mega Production duo Stargate (Katy Perry, Wiz Khalifa – Black & Yellow, and more)
