Albums, Singles and EP’s
Mr BLVD. was a musical experiment formed under the influence of MR Bungle and ween in 2001 by myself and a man named Brian. We created a self titled 24 track album and a a 4 track ep named “smeg” in that year. His part being the rhythm and producing, and mine being leads, bass and keyboard noise.
Somewhere in 2002 I had a run in with a sharp mcstabby and temporarily lost the tip of a digit and was sidelined from playing bass or guitar, thus the project of AMATTIK was born.
I fell into 100% digital autoMATTIK recording and noise making, starting with my first EP “booboofinger” in 2003 (currently available only on burned cd somewhere in my closet)
I dabbled for several years making random concept albums such :”Deepfeild south” (audio space opera), “The Idiom” 1 & 2 (hour long each continuous tracks of inside jokes and cult film quips set to wondering beats and melodies) and “whimsical” (loud or possibly obnoxious tunes filled with off color comedy samples).
After a few years recording on a standalone DAW, Roland keyboard and 303 drum machine I started falling into other hobbies and abandoned recording altogether, only playing acoustic guitar tunes for fun.
Several years later I was introduced to Abelton and music was reborn as the prime muse.
From this new endless box of tools I have been re tuning myself and creating self indulgent sounds to the worlds and characters that live in my brain. Each song has a mind movie that plays along while I listen and that is what makes it fulfilling to create. It brings me back to the early days of listening to “The Orb” , TFSOL , and all the Electronic musicians of my early life that let you imagine along with them while listening to sounds. My appreciation goes out to anyone who gives my tunes a listen and my hope is that they will be able to take an enjoyable mini journey with them.
Amattik has been with WEATNU Records since 2016.
