about

About 200 individual songs were sampled to create this mashup/mixtape/sound collage. I did not use any timing devices or "beat detective," software. Everything was lined up with eyes and ears on a small digital canvas.

"Orchestral Incident #1," is an original piece that I felt would fit in with the tone of the rest of the material. This project, which I've titled, 'Hit Hard,' may change and expand over time as I finish up several other works in progress.

Some of these songs have been sitting for over two years and - while I do plan to have a full-length album's-worth of these eventually, I deemed the project "complete enough," for public consumption.

The idea was conceived rather innocently while rifling through my CD collection some three years ago. I had begun to wonder to myself how some of the songs on these albums would sound stacked over other songs from different albums. Thus, 'Hit Hard,' was born.

I hope you enjoy listening and that you have fun picking out and breaking down the many, many songs that were sampled throughout this project.

Be Well,

Brian
