A big shout out to all you “MOTIFATED People”! This is the place where I’ll be documenting my thoughts and experiences making music with the Motif/Motif ES/Motif XS and other related products.
I’m looking forward to the BLOG format. I think it will be much easier for me to communicate my thoughts clearly here, than just by posting.
I’ve been with Yamaha since 1994. I knew from the first synth that I bought (1983) that I was in for a lifetime of sythesizer addiction. :)
After I bought my first DX7 I knew I somehow had to get involved with Yamaha. Working for Yamaha continues to be a whirlwind of experieces, most of which I never really expected to be part of my musical life or bring me to where I am now.
I really have to credit much of my early passion for sythesizer sounds to my 8th grade music teacher, Bob Eyer in Chambersburg, PA / my mother’s eclectic tastes in music-and her LP of Walter Carlos’s “Switched On Bach” LP ( Man, I wore all of the grooves off of that thing!)
Hopefully those who read this blog will get to know me and my philosophies a little better and… will feel like they already know me a little when we meet up at my clinics and other events.
