藏起來的愛 (曲/編/製) ‖蔡詩蕓∥【NoNo】∥2010.10
This is by far my favorite song that I’ve done with Dominique (and we’ve probably done like 14 songs together already). I remember the day we wrote this, I just kept listening to it over and over again. I couldn’t stop. You know you’ve written a good song when you can’t stop listening to it. And unfortunately there’s a really sad story to go along with it. One of Dom’s best friends in the States passed away suddenly. She came over, told me what happened, was pretty much in tears the whole time.. She said she really wanted to something for her. So we just started writing. The video is pretty much her story of her and her friend. Beautiful yet hella sad. I cried the first time I watched it. I don’t usually cry, but I think this video hit too close to home.
無畏無懼 (製) ‖柯有倫∥【無畏無懼】∥2010.12
Alright, my wife is taking a nap, so I’m not if I got the Chinese right. I also don’t know the title of the album. I’m totally faking this one. But it’s too awesome not to post right away.. Basically I just produced this one. And it was the easiest production of mt life. When I was working with Allen Wes on 生存權 (編/製) ‖艾玮伦‖【首張創作單曲】‖2010.02 , he ended up giving me about 100 mp3’s of the best rock arrangements I’ve ever heard. Allen Wes can arrange these Limp Bizkit style songs in a day, no problem. It’s his gift, and he’s amazing at it. So one day Alan Kuo came over. We weren’t even thinking about recording anything. We were just chilling. We started listening to Allen Wes’s demos, and thought, fuck it.. Let’s just record over one of his mp3s. So I set up my mic, and let Alan Kuo do his thing. About 30 minutes later, he was done with rapping and writing the chorus. So then it was my turn to add all my back up vocals, and little more guitars here and there, basically just focus on some of the details. Then I asked my wife to sing some backups.. I think it’s so funny that the back up vocals in the chorus are mostly my wife 庭竹. If you’ve ever heard her music, you’ll realize it’s about 100% different from Alan Kuo’s style. So after about 4 hours, the song was totally done. I love both Alan and Allen, and am so proud to have been part of this song. I’m pretty sure in the future that everyone is gonna want an Allen Wes rock arrangement. If I ever put out an album, I know I would..
Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rf0SnzCj9uYI'm super proud of this one!! It looks amazing!! And this is one of the few songs I've done, that was solely done through the internet. I didn't meet Jun, Steve, or Ray once when we we're doing this one. We just kept recording tracks, uploading, downloading, and internet jamming.. So 2010...
Believe it or not, this is the first English song I've done for Taiwan.. I'm super proud of this one.
For those who didn't get the facebook news, my wife has been pregnant for 7 months with our future daughter!!! Everything is going perfectly, and we couldn't be happier.. We wrote a song for her, and I spent forever trying to sing it in chinese.. I wrote the music, my wife TingChu wrote the lyrics.. Just wanted to share it with you all!!
Here's a link to our song, 我的寶貝..
I met up with Etchy tonight for dinner, and turns out I forgot to mention on alivenotdead that I got married!!! Ting Chu and I tied the knot on February 6th, 2010!! I have about a billion pictures from that day, but instead of uploading all of them, I can post this video instead. Our friend, Emily Cheng, was there the entire day taking pictures, and later made a music video out of them!!
The song is "Ai Ni" which means "Love You".. A song my wife wrote for me.
Finally someone put up this song on youtube!! Now I can share it with everyone!!
This is the song we recorded with Van Ness in my Mom's basement. Holding fans to act like pop filters, everyone in the same little room while we record everything. Mixed by myself at home on this little laptop.. And still sounds so good!!! I wish I could work with every artist this way!!!
So I wrote, arranged and produced a song for a guy in Taiwan called Yoga Lin aka 林宥嘉. Here's the MV they shot for the song called "Senses" or "感同身受"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Xw43V7RVgE And turns out the record companies give each radio station a different song to play. So they gave my song only to Hit Radio in Taiwan, and gave different songs from Yoga's album to different radio stations. I guess this way the radio stations feel special. So if you like my song, you can only listen to it on Hit Radio Taiwan.. So it's not really fair to say that last week my song was #1.. It was, but only on this radio station, and no other radio station is allowed to play my song.. Hmm..
But there's this other site, called KK BOX. Which is an internet site, where you pay a monthly fee, and then you can stream pretty much any song you want. You can't download, only stream.. And my song is #1 today, and #2 for the entire week.
I guess this site is more fair. Cuz anyone with an account can choose any song to listen to.
There's no billboard style chart for Taiwan, so I'll never really know if I have the #1 song in Taiwan, but this is good enough for me!!
Now I can sleep a little bit more shamefully promoted..
Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3kyNGVK-hI I know I haven't blogged for a long time.. My bad.. But don't think I just fell off the map. I've been searching for these past 3 months for the perfect youtube video to post..
And ladies and gentlemen... I present you something that will blow your mind, and then keep blowing it...

I played this video for a couple of my musician friends.. And they thought it was real.. So I will be honest for once in my life, and tell you that this isn't real!! But it's pure genius!!! Some guy at www.stsanders.com made this. He took live show footage and replaced the music behind it.. And the result... GENIUS!!!!
And here's Santana Rockin Out So HARD!!!
And my personal Favorite, Steve Vai, guitar legend...
And something special for my Audiotraffic Boys.. I think they'll love this one the most..
