To my surprise and great pleasure, I caught Pope Francis giving me the holy ‘thumbs up’ from a bookstore window on Michigan Avenue today.
Since the cardboard cutout is licensed by the Catholic Church, it undoubtedly represents the Holy Father’s approval of everything that passes by that section of street. I’m not sure if the Pontiff heard my tunes Scorched, The Pious DJ or Vulcan Sex Pinch, but I’ll accept his “Keep up the good work, Mondo.” with all the grace and humility that a secular cyborg DJ from the future can muster.
I added a few new sound sketches the YouTube channel.
Working out a few ideas, but it’s also a test for capturing sound via direct input to my camera. It’s difficult to find the right gain and get clear sound without clipping. But hopefully, this will mean more spur-of-the-moment mobile video beat making.

Just posted the first of the Skull Island Sessions, a series of short videos of experimental beats, rhythms and sounds that will get inside your head. Skull Island will be kind of a sound sketchbook of techniques and themes. I’m hoping to shipwreck some guests in here to help out, too.
If you love the track and think it has potential, let me know. If you hate it and want to drive a stake through it, let me know that, too.
