The CooKeD music experience

Howdy!

My name is Joel Nesbit. I’m the owner of Cooked Music, an emerging production music studio. My focus at CooKeD Music is to create a unique blend of acoustic and electronic sounds, to fit the projects you are working on.

I have been creating original music with Ableton Live for over 6 years. This journey began when I had the opportunity to compose electronic tracks for a college radio station in 2008. Since that time, I have produced and recorded tracks for local hip-hop artists, and composed and mastered for an electronic jazz artist. I have developed a catalog of over 150 songs, best described as ambient electronic, influenced by house, dub, and funk. This work is supported by my experience as a bass player for classic rock and funk bands for 6 years, which has allowed me to strike the right balance of analog and synths in my work. To further refine my skills, I earned an Associate of Arts degree in Recording and Technology from the Madison Media Institute.

As years have passed, I have found that my work evokes imagery in the listener, as evidenced by these types of responses:

"This is what sitting on top of a mountain feels like"
"Sounds like there is a bad guy getting chased, and he is about to get caught"
"I can see myself on a beach, and smell the salt in the air"
"This makes me think of a baby in a nursery going to sleep"

Go ahead, take a listen, and see what journey the sounds take you on.

My catalog is available for personal use and non-exclusive sync rights; I also provide commissioned tracks and mixing. Email me at: cookedmusic@gmail.com, and we can get started today on getting the right sound for your project.
