about

People ask me all the time if I'm a musician and I always answer, “No.” Because I'm not. I'm an artist who works with music and sound sometimes. For the last six years I've created dozens of sound collages under the name UFOverdriver. I'd mix pieces of sound together to create new listening experiences. But I've never had the desire to write or play songs. Until recently…

Since last October I've changed my focus towards learning how to construct songs. I started with Brian Eno-inspired ambient pieces and created over 25 finished pieces. Lately I've turned my attention to learning how popular songs are constructed. To do this I've manipulated MIDI versions of songs – taking songs apart and putting them back together again to learn how all the pieces fit - and recorded and mixed over 40 songs during March. It pays off doing something 14 hours a day for 3 weeks straight - I got a great sense of how I want to make my own songs.

Here are 2 original Professor Yarnhead songs - “Soft Rains (On A Sunny Day)” and "So Blue." Both songs actually includes me singing. For those that known me in the past, I do not sing – but I do now! I'm starting to believe anything might be possible for Professor Yarnhead!

about

Professor Yarnhead Pioneertown, California

Over twenty years ago my friend Brian had a dream in which there was a character named Yarn Head. When he told me about his dream I told him that years from now, when I was around 50 I’d have a band and I’d call myself Professor Yarnhead.

I guess that time has come!

Now I'm living and recording in the hi-desert in Southern California, near Joshua Tree in Pioneertown.

Track Name: Soft Rains (On A Sunny Day)
Soft rains on a sunny day
looks like we're gonna have some of that rain today

We have sunny skies with a tinge of grey,
it's starting to look that way,
we might get some rain today

There's some clouds in the sky,
they're heading this way,
looks like they're pretty heavy with rain

Soft rains on a sunny day
looks like we're gonna have some of that rain today

We have sunny skies with a tinge of grey,
it's starting to look that way,
we might get some rain today

There's some clouds in the sky,
heading this way,
looks like they're pretty heavy with rain

Soft rains on a sunny day
looks like we're gonna have some of that rain today
Track Name: So Blue
I felt so blue
so blue I could barely get out of bed this morning
So tired
So tired my whole body all the way through
I drank two cups of coffee
before going back to bed
It's that kind of a day.
Too hard to raise my head
Too hard to keep myself out of bed

Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue

Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue

There was just all kinds of things I had to do,
things that couldn't be done…
I couldn't do those today
So so blue today
sooo so blue today

Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue

Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue
Feeling so blue

It's one of those days
one of those day
you feel like taking your pills
your medicines
crawling down in some hole
and just staying there awhile
not have to see anybody
