Life 3: Uplifting Memories

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 23 - 2008

Good morning all, I’ve had a very emotional, and busy last few days. I lost my Aunt Emma from Ny on Sunday morning, and K Swift passed away early Monday morning. Everyone experiences troubled times, it is good in these times to turn to the gifts of the soul.

Life 2:How My Hiatus Opened Bigger Doors

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 15 - 2008

At the end of working on the set of Season 5 of Hbo’s “The Wire”, I invested in this ^ beginners guitar. It will be a year in October, but I only know a few notes. I had to make the transition back to music from 2 straight years of film work. After a few months reorganizing my lab, connecting all the modules, and hardware to my DAW, I began to study music theory. In April I got the site up and running, and now blogging is a part of my career.

I used to be on my local scene heavy. You could find me at almost every event, battle, and hip hop function weekly. Between 2004 and 2006 I have worked with over 60 artist and my beat game was booming. I was making about 4 or 5 beats daily, and on just about every mixtape or major local cd that came out. Folks locally have been wondering where I’ve been she still doing beats?….Is she still doing film work?… The answer is yes to beats, and no to film work (at least for a while).

I was explaining to Sol Eternity, a long time mentor of mine, that my focus is different than before. I think he was assuming I was giving up from his response. What he didn’t hear is what my site reveals. The Music Industry relies heavily on the internet for survival. Here I am making my mark, I am no longer frantically chasing a place called “The Industry”, I realize that I am in “The Industry”. I am making a decent living doing what I love, right here with people just like me.

What this realization has done, is open doors for more musical freedom. When I was ” a hungry, greedy, starving”… my feet weren’t quite planted on solid ground. Today I feel I am able to create freely,and I have more time with the artist I produce for. I have more time to learn new things about music, and I have more time to teach what I am learning. If I had not done the music hiatus while on film sets, this site would still be under construction, and I would still be on the merry go round of::: beats,studio, shows, sell beats, spend the money at shows, beats, shows, studio,spend money on an outfit for the shows..etc etc… I guess life said “STOP”….and now I am on a much better and more smooth path.

What I’m Doing…Making Beats, and Puppy Sitting :-)

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 10 - 2008

This morning I’m up early. I’ve been puppy sitting for a couple days… and he’s a cutey. It’s my cousins little Shih Tzu and looks similar to this

He’s been adorable the whole time… he pees a lot though :-)….

Well I have several projects on the way. Today I’ll be doing a couple beats for some pioneers of Hip Hop. This opportunity is an honor. Easy Tee one of the original members of “The Dream Team” hit me up for some new heat. It’s 6:43 am, and I’ve fed puppy… I’m gonna play with him a while, then get started. I’ll post up some pictures of how I’m doing on the tracks through out the day…
I felt like doing something different with todays posts.

In the meantime, check out some Hip Hop history. Easy Tee’s Myspace page is loaded with links to the origionators. This is the true roots of Rap Music/ Hip Hop which was born over 30 years ago!~…

Celebration: Independance Day

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 4 - 2008

We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness

Imagine a nation that believes in the 4 lines above
Is it not an expression of Love?
All men created equal, leaving out not one,
Yet we are at war, and multitudes live by the gun….

by anonymous

Let us celebrate but always remember the meaning… Happy 4th everybody…and in case it rains tonight..

Life1..Be Inspired

Posted by Ms.Tris Beats On May - 31 - 2008

Let The “Son” Shine In…

Charles Dickens:
“This is a world of action, and not for moping and droning in”
Musicians, artist, mothers, fathers, sisters,brothers, family and friends…please be inspired! If you are feeling discouraged in life, it is time to re direct that negative energy into something positive. This quote is a simple way to do so. The energy it takes to think about what you are lacking or to replay a depressing occurrence can be turned positive with effort. Do something active…go for a walk..clean the back some jumping something to take your thoughts off that dark “blotch” in mind….stay active, stay positive,…stay inspired…
