By Yuzima Philip in New Music on Saturday 17 December 2011

Ever since last Christmas I wanted to record a Christmas tune, and of course, do it my way. I even started one up but didn’t finish. But this year I was determined to do so. So I started recording Winter Wonderland a couple of weeks ago in my downtown New York apartment studio. What came […]

U2 recorded a song called New York on their All That You Can’t Leave Behind LP, and another one after 9/11. I recorded my own tribute, We Rock for NY, in 2008.

By Yuzima Philip in New Music on Thursday 13 October 2011

One word for La Jovenc. Genius. I came across him some time around 2007 and he blew my mind with his musical experiments. One in particular where he used all sampled insect sounds to create fantastic soundscapes. He greatly influenced my first recordings.
