JennyK andfamiliar: Mismanaging motivation since 2002. Assisted by Reaper, Mac, Focusrite, ATR, Roland, MXL, Ibanez, Line 6, and Granola.

Latest mix:

More music on Pthe HOI Studio Portfolio page. and make sure to follow me on SoundCloud

Podcasting:

All podcasts are currently on hold. Wish as I may, I can’t do it all and it seems to me I have little or nothing to say. Not as a solo show in any case. that includes the “music we love”, and The NAG radio.”

Writing:

Nothing. Yep, I said nothing. I just found my priorities shift a little bit, as mentioned.

Icarus Machine:

: Yay! Vocals are done, revised, rewritten, retracked,, mixed, and delivered. Drums are all done and delivered. Bass: done and delivered. Mixes are being mixed, reviewed, remixed, analyzed, and will soon be ready for final reviews and edits, mastering, yada yada.

Looking good, man.
Without looking too far into the future, we have several tracks in the lineup for whatever comes after this EP.
so there you have it. Waiting does pay off in the end. Just a bit longer, Friends. 😀

JennyK in real life:

Reaper rules!
Still learning, still experimenting, but doing more mixing. I am available if you have a project just waiting to be put together. Hit me up. As As a not yet proven audio engineer, prices are at this point more than reasonable. JennyK Productions and theHouse of Imp Studio would love to help.

Contemplating:

Many things. Pandemic or no, I’m still me, things are still awful and great in the same breath. I think each day about resuming the podcast and writing on my novel.
Instead I open up another mix in Reaper or listen to a live stream or great video from Produce like a Pro.
That is neither a good or a bad thing, it just is what I need right now. I’m calling this a studio, I call myself a producer and mix engineer. Changing how I think. I believe that really is a good thing.

Icarus Machine 2019 –Corium

Corium Album Cover. A flayed man, a bible. Ancient statue.
Corium Album Cover. A flayed man, a bible. Ancient statue.
After two years it is finally finished. Corium is our second album and it is a couple of steps up from our debut album “This Sundered World” (2016). This album returns to the world created in the novel “A Mother’s Heart.” and the theme in this album expands the world and focuses on new characters. The companion novel to Corium – “Mother of Crow” is still being written with no release date in sight.
But Corium is very much ready and you can decide for yourself if it was worth the wait.
Find Corium on Deezer,
Spottify,
iTunes,
Google Play,
and
Amazon.
and of course on
Bandcamp!

  • What’s New Monday, Feb 1 @ 15:59 - Latest news, thoughts, and things to come January 27, 2020 We made it to 2020, who would have thunk it. This website is safe for the year thanks to beautiful people who answered my emergency ask for financial help. I'm feeling quite humbled at the moment tbh. Icarus Machine is working on Fragile. i'm writing and revising a couple of novels. Some podcasting is underway too. This very moment, which is the only moment there is, things are not bad at all. May it stay so. Be well always. November 13, 2019 So, I started a fundraiser. My microphone is failing me, so I would love help with a new one. Sounds easy enough. Well, it's not. Psychologically and practically it's tough. I keep thinking it's a stupid thing to do. Why would anyone care. It's the wrong time of year to ask people for money, even if it's a few dollars. I'm not sick or homeless or in need of... anything truly critical for survival. Someone said to me, "It's a shot in the dark." I'm not sure what that actually means. but it doesn't feel like encouragement. Another issue that crops up is that since I do have a microphone, I use it so clearly I have one, my ask seems unnecessary and probably feels like a simple grab for cash. I'm not sure how to think about that. It makes me doubt myself. Grab for cash? Well, no! But I'm sure that depends on who you ask too. First world problem in a nutshell. but then I remember my actual situation and the reason why I started the fundraiser. It's simply because the gear I have is failing and I have problems keeping it running while I… Go to the post.
