Q

Hello Brian,
regarding that Ponytail Girl track and the happenings in 2001: did you ever had trouble with the DM management regarding including this track to your DM cover versions?


Color Theory responded on 07/15/2019
A

Not at all. We've never been in contact. There's no problem though. I have every legal right to cover their songs if I pay the proper royalties, which I did. They have no say over how I package them.

Q

What are the expected goals of Color Theory in music world?
Trying to get in the charts of big signed artists as the Bilboard or go you more the independent way and get airplay at as much as possible radios (fm and internet)?


Color Theory responded on 07/05/2019
A

Neither of those actually. Just trying to build a catalog of great songs and expand my audience and patron support.

Q

Do you play anywhere at the moment?


Color Theory responded on 06/25/2019
A

Actually, I don't perform at all. I'm strictly a recording artist. But I appreciate the thought!

Q

Hey Man, I just found your stuff from my Spotify Discover Weekly. I gotta say I love your voice and use of synth in your tracks. What keyboard model do you use for your chord progressions and riffs?


Color Theory responded on 01/24/2019
A

Hooray for Spotify algorithms! 🙌🏻

I use all softsynths. For my upcoming album, Lucky Ago, I'm using a single synth — Zebra 2. For Majesty, which is likely what you're listening to, there are a few — mainly Diva and various synths from the Arturia Collection (a lot of Jup-8 and DX7).

Q

Hi CT, when will there be more? Truly love your music! Thank you!

I release a new song every month on Patreon, but I can't say for sure when my next public release will be. Thanks for the kind words!

Q

any live performance or music videos? like your use of the roli seaboads. and i like your sounds!


Color Theory responded on 11/20/2018
A

Thanks! I don't have any full performance videos. Just those little clips you've seen of me playing my ROLI gear. I'd rather devote my time to putting out more music!

Q

Hey Brian. I listened some lately tracks of you and I very much liked them! Can I get your "Kyoto Song" with Matt Mancid?


Color Theory responded on 09/27/2018
A

Thanks David! I haven't released that one just yet. It goes out to all patrons in October (usually the first or second Tuesday).

Q

How far back did you know that this would be what you loved doing? Did you always aspire to music?


Color Theory responded on 09/06/2018
A

Pretty much! By the middle of high school, I figured I'd major in music. And I always knew I wanted to make records, yet I never really dreamed of becoming a star.

Q

lol, perhaps it was a remix of one of your songs, sorry about that, I'm sure that was it. I do love your style and I grew up not far from you in Hawthorne California. Glory Days really took me back there.

No worries! Yeah, there are several remixes of Glory Days with guitar. At one time I could pull off "Message in a Bottle" and the beginning of "Master of Puppets" but that's it for my guitar abilities.

I eat at the Pollo Inka in Hawthorne whenever I'm taking the 405 past it!
