new things to see and hear and buy and talk about and blog about perraggafount!

May 5, 2012

well mom, you know how i like to keep myself bizzy.  lately i’ve been working on a few things, including updating my website to include things that i’ve been working on, except for working on my website, which isn’t an update on the site but i think becomes evident when one views said site.

www.jonsteinmeier.com

one exciting thing that i’m finally selling sheet music on the site, in the “score store.”  so far i have “the page turner’s big break” and a couple of the piano etudes available.  more coming soon!

two exciting thing is that i’ve updated the site with lovely pictures that i like, and links to a bunch of stuff i’ve worked or am working on.

three exciting thing that the Rhymanese Twins and SnakenStein now have websites.  the rhymanese twins is an act that noah tabakin and i developed for Tour de Fat last year that we’re revisiting on this years tour as well.

the SnakenStein show is a NEW show that we’ve developed for Tour de Fat and other stage and street venues this year.  we’re very excited about it!

four exciting things visit my new site and all of the other sites!

love,

jon

The next big thing in birthday music

April 8, 2012

oh! hello. didn’t see you there.

ever get tired of singing the same happy birthday song to friends and family of yours that are composers?

try making a special a capella birthday rendition of something that they composed!

i did this recently for Mark Messing, based on an excerpt from an awesome piece of his called “Fredonia Strikes Back” that he wrote for orchestra.

here’s the excerpt:

and here’s my happy birthday mark messing a capella home recorded silly town version:

this was fun for a couple two tree reasons.

1. i got to get into this section of the piece and get to know it a little; figure out the chords and some of the voicings, etc.
2. the piece is a comically dark vehicle for a “happy birthday” message.
3. i like to sing. hadn’t done any voice only work in a while, and it’s quite satisfying. fun to sing all the parts and have to
tune to yourself, and in this case, make some percussion noises! also, nice to not have to set up and tear down other gear
all afternoon recording live instruments.

whenever i get into a project like this it always makes me wanna do a whole set. like make a record of this, a record of that. kids songs, hip hop, a capella stuff, a heavy metal album. but who has the time?

anyway, thanks for the music mark! happy day!

Big Weekend Update Words

July 15, 2011

hey mom!  i know it’s been a while since i gave you an update using this BLOG MONSTER, so i thought i would do exactly that!

1 and 2.  Steinomite’s doing well, and he thanks you for asking.  He’s performing this saturday afternoon at 2p in the Le Tigre Tent at Chicago’s Tour de Fat.  it’s a festival thrown by New Belgium Brewing Company promoting their beer, bicycling, conservation, alternative energy, and great awesome fun!  as you know, i’m one of the music directors for the festival.  this’ll be our third one of this tour, and it’s going really well so far!  Steinomite also has a show with the Hüsker Dudes and Dead Rider at the Hideout on August 26th.  only a couple of days later, on August 28th, Steinomite will perform a short set at the Whistler, as part of a night put together by You, Me, Them, Everybody.

boy, that’s a lot!

3.  just last saturday was the release part for Hank Frisco: Galaxy Defender, Episode 2!  mom, remember how you like Star Trek and other science fiction shows?!  This episode is great, and required lots of fun music from me.  chase music, romantic music, villain music, hero music, office music.  among them, one that i really enjoyed writing, was the villain theme for my friend Tim Heurlin, and variations on it throughout the episode.  this was also a fun opportunity to do little variations on the main Hank Frisco theme.  as always, if you or anyone else (Dad?) have questions about the score, i’d love to talk you through it.  below is a link to the episode!  maybe i’ll expand on it in yet another incredibly interesting blog post!

http://www.hankfrisco.com/featured/episode-2-handshake/

4.  Footnote!  so psyched about how this show it turning out.  major props to Jon and Alicia Reisinger and their team for their awesome work on this show.  the most recent episode, “worried sick”, airs tomorrow night (friday july 15th) on WGN, and can then be viewed at www.fntv.com.  this episode, as well as the “lost and found” and “overstuffed” episodes were scored mostly by me.  drop me a line if you wanna talk about any of this music as well, and check out their facebook page here:  http://www.facebook.com/footnotetv

well, thanks for reading as always mom.  i sure hope you like EVERYTHING i do.

love,

Jonathan

Rap Battle Parts 3 and 4!

November 16, 2010

IT CONTINUES!

Professor A. Day has come back with a response to “four whole seasons.”  she calls it “part of your world” (like in that movie)

and Steinomite has responded to “part of your world” with “battle rap for ya” which is a battle rap.  and is the best

It’s a Rap Battle!

October 3, 2010

ATTENTION PLANET EARTH

a couple of weeks ago, an MC from LA called “Professor A. Day” dropped some serious smack on Steinomite and the city of Chicago.

Steinomite was like, “pfff…” and began working on his response, totally chill, cause he’s the best.

now, the response has gone live.  for Chicago.  for Freedom.

Tour de Fat 2010!

August 30, 2010

my buddy noah tabakin and i were hired on this year as music directors for New Belgium Brewing Company’s Tour de Fat this summer, and it’s been a great time!

so far we’ve played:
Chicago,
Milwaukee
Minneapolis
Seattle
Portland
Boise

and our next stop is the Brewery’s home-base, Fort Collins, CO!

we’re working with a terrific band called The Dovekins from Denver, and among the tunes we’re doing, i’ve written a couple! this is a blog about making things, so here we go!

1.  something triumphant, but i won’t tell you what it’s for, that’d spoil the suprise

2.  game show theme! (this is played live, but here’s a quick midi version)

3.  theme for the winner of the show!  by myself and mr. tabakin.  (also demo version)

4.  crash!  (foley)

5.  industrial smelting sound design

and these four little guys, that we didn’t end up using in the final version of the show:

those crazy fast rabbits!

father time theme

romance theme
