i am migi.
too long sparks is the title of my solitary musical venture.
my band mates are little blinking boxes of plastic, metal and wire.
i write dark pop songs, animating them with found sounds, looping guitars, ukuleles, synth and voice.
portland, oregon is my home.

Happy Thanksgiving, folks. Hope you're fat and hungover and ready for more holiday abuse.
I'm currently booking shows for the winter from Seaside, Oregon to Port Townsend, Washington with as many stops in between as I can manage.

my studio is a functional disaster 

I've been focusing lately on ukulele based songs partly because I love the compactness of the instrument and also because it has a much different character than the guitar. Who am I kidding? I love gigging with it because I'm lazy and it's small.  I'm developing songs right now that I can perform live using only the ukulele, a loop pedal and a few effects pedals. I'm getting some pretty good layers with this relatively minimal setup, using a newly added octave pedal to create some new textures. I'll have the results of my labor up on the site soon.
