Fuzz Cast 15 - To The Matrices

The past week we had the Blue Sky Talent Show at work on Thursday night. The couple weeks leading up to it I've been really busy preparing for the talent show, mostly playing trumpet but also organizing practice sessions at work.
In this episode of Fuzz Cast I have a couple movie recommendations, Snowpiercer and Captain America : The Winter Soldier which both coincidentally star the same leading actor.
  Today's music track is a recent Fuzz Bucket (without Jamie). I called it To The Matrices. It features both Eric and me playing two instruments each, Eric on novax (bass and guitar) and me on trumpet and drums.

Fuzz Cast 14 - Epic Jam

Dan digs into the archives to present a jam session which could be considered the bir
th of the idea that became Fuzz Bucket. One of the main ideas of Fuzz Bucket is not onl
y the idea of each of us playing multiple instruments but also trying to play them simu
ltaneously. In this jam session Jamie Williams decides to play guitar and bass simultan
eously. The results were epic, to overuse and already dead word.
Epic Musicians:
Dan Shimmyo - drums
Jamie Williams - bass / guitar
Sheldon Chow - guitar
Eric Maurer - guitar
  The track can be found on soundcloud here:

Fuzz Cast 13 - Trump Stump

Host: Dan Shimmyo
  Dan talks about the latest Fuzz Bucket (or fuzz duo) jam session with Eric called Trump Stump on August 29, 2014 in Eric's basement studio. This jam features the trumpet in the intro and a small break in the middle. All the while you will be sonically assault
ed by Eric's guitar and bass lines. Really great stuff. Please check it out!
  The trumpet solos and whatnot are going to have to substitute for the ever popular Tr
umpet Time segment.

Fuzz Cast Episode 12 - Krzysztof Fus

Host: Dan Shimmyo
  In this episode I have a chat with Krzysztof Fus who works as a modeler at Blue Sky Studios and also writes jokes and perfoms a standup routine in comedy clubs. We talk about similarities between music and comedy and reaching goals early.  There's also an installment of Trumpet Time where I play a bit of Home Sweet Home, the first musical piece I've learned to play on trumpet.
