This blog is written by Terry Atkinson, an independent, self-recording artist based in Ottawa, Ontario. I publish my music under the band name Xybor and the Cosmonauts. Music and audio are my passions.
The music I like is diverse — rock, jazz, fusion, blues, bluegrass and pop. But my musical center tends to lie with progressive and psychedelic rock, ala Beatles, Pink Floyd, Bowie.
Being a self-recording artist, I have to do everything. I write the song, play the instruments, engineer and produce it, package and promote it. And, of course, I am continuously honing my production and engineering skills.
Ergo, the purpose of this blog — to convey what I am thinking and exploring, and to share with like-minded individuals and artists. And perhaps even get some collaborations going.
Enjoy the blog. Talk to me.
