Modern Eyes

Modern Eyes = ME

One day I went in the studio to try making a song without playing any instruments myself. Very different from most of the songs/music we do. Instead of starting with a guitar or piano, we started with Loops! The first song was ‘Ocean Dance’. It was so much fun doing that, that before I knew it two more songs, ‘Minstral Show’, and ‘Poolside’ were recorded. All of them were strictly instrumental  loops. Then ‘Ancient Walls’ happened.

With ‘Ancient Walls’ the instrumental concept stuck, but this time it was real instruments, not prerecorded loops!

By January of 2021 there were 8 songs, enough to released an album. I used a fictitious band name of Modern Eyes (ME) and titled the album 'Side Projects'. Modern Eyes was a play on modernize and (ME)! Anyway it was a different and fun way to make music, which I love to do! With Modern Eyes, I just go where it takes ME.

'Side Projects' can be found on Apple Music, Spotify and most other digital music outlets!

The second Modern Eyes album was released 'Side Projects II' on July 17th, 2022.
Side Projects II includes, 'Too Late', 'Coastal Sands', 'Shoot The Loop', 'Funk Master', 'Serenity', 'Running', 'Jazzy Jazz', 'Sad and Lonely' and 'Fire Always Burns'. Some songs are only loops, while several are a combination of loops and played/recorded instruments. ‘Serenity’ is one like ‘Ancient Walls’, whereas it’s not prerecorded loops, it’s me playing guitar and using my keyboard for strings!

I have fun with it, so don't judge ME! It keeps ME out of trouble!

Side Projects III released April 15th, 2024. It's and EP with four songs. I enlisted the help of Bob Akers to add the touch of new direction for Modern Eyes. Although there might be loops involved Modern Eyes will now always be injecting actual played instruments into all of it's music! 

Check out this sites other pages. One song of interest is called ‘No Jive’ it’s mainly loops, but the lead guitars and vocals are real instruments. It's from Rick Lally's 'It's High Time' album released in 2018.
