borris? Biography? Ya got me.

Some say he's an entirely made up character. Others?... He's really someone famous just goofing around here. Still others say borris is a genius of sorts, who just doesn't understand the meaning of time management and honesty—when it comes to letting people know the real person inside. If there were any others left to comment, they might say he's grateful for the amazingly loving people who have bothered to listen to his music and interact in such a positive and upbeat way over the years. Yeah, that's what he'd …SAY. As far as who he IS, and what he's REALLY like… I doubt anyone really cares much. I know he does have a few mysteries up his sleeve, and a few more rolled up in one of the cuffs of his pants. It's also true he plays odd keyboards, electric tambourine, and sings in a band called "WE PLAY LOUD", and he owns, and uses onstage—an actual JetPak™! Unbelievable. A FREAKING JETPACK?

borris moves around a lot, and has been know to spend a fair amount of any given year in London—somewhere near West Hampstead I think. Of course, he enjoys the dryness of Mojave, but feels that part of CA has really taken a dive in the last 100 years. It's also way too hot most of the year, and borris is not a guy who enjoys heat. Oh, I think he may be extremely wealthy too, but that's a hard one to pin down. He'll call you up, tell you to meet him on some corner in a really creepy part of town, and then just walk up, hand you an envelope full of money, and disappear into the night. That is, if it's night time. During the day, he likes driving around and recording at the same time. Not a good idea, so… Kids PLEASE DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. Now that I think about that last statement, kids don't generally drive. On top of that, if they did, anyone would know that driving AT HOME is always a bad idea. Especially inside the home. I must have meant something entirely different when I wrote that. Anyway, I have met borris, and some might say I even keep up with the man. All I can say for sure is, some of the above might be true.

borris, …we think.

Online Mastering? LANDR might be helpful December 2, 2014
I tried a few of my old songs, just to give LANDR a try. Definitely did …something.

Genres October 26, 2005
Schrodinger's Cat Paradox is one of the songs of mine that I like best. I guess I would describe it as 170 BPM fast movin', hard drivin', genre ignoring', fun! I hope you get a chance to check it out and read the funny and interesting comments that some people have left.

'Other' seems to be my genre of choice although I felt that I should choose 'Rock/Pop' for Schrodinger's Cat Paradox. I wish I didn't have to pick though because it's really not rock or pop - really. What genre is it then? Someone said it's Electronic because the effected xylophones sound like video game noises. Would that be Electro, Electronica, Electro Chair or what? Who knows? And I guess I could say, "who cares?" But as you will see from the following brief entry, people do seem to care.

Speaking Of Genres
by borris/cjacks

Right before I was kicked out of Genre School, one of my instructors, told me that the correct genre for my song, Schrodinger's Cat Paradox, must be 'Hasbro Era Fancybeat'. Well, I told him that he was nuts and that it could only be a lavishly crafted combination of 'Future Gameshow', 'Hamster Wheel', 'New-In-Box', 'Space Yodel', 'Humpty Dollhouse', 'Turbo Gypsy', and possibly 'Outlaw Carnival' or Traditional Beat Pirate'. Then I realized that I hadn't noticed the whole 'Hechno-Promtractor' influence and that, in fact, the overall feel was really more like some kind of sped up 'Breakfastbeat', mixed with the slightest hint of 'Ashtray Pizza'.

That was all it took.
