Biography

Pete Schalck

I make music for music sake. I'm not looking for fame or fortune, just having fun getting it out there. The way I work is basically all improvisational. I use Apple's Garage Band software to record and compose. A simple drum/metronome track is created using Apple loops, because I don't have a drum set, then I'll record a guitar track and add layers of sound on top of that. I'll follow up with some vocals that are generally stream of consciousness and artsy babble just to get a melody.
Hope you enjoy the tunes!
