The all new Theophagÿst Website

Hey there!

After spending a couple of days implementing my Bandcamp API, I decided to give it a try in the wild, so I created something that I was postponing for a while – a website for my music project Theophagÿst, which utilizes the API on top of VueJs front-end and Node server-side rendering, and also has a few nice features such as music player, some of my Facebook videos and more.

You should check it here. Have a good one!

RESTFul API for Bandcamp

Recently I was thinking of creating a website for my personal music project Theophagÿst with the intention to use the data from my Bandcamp profile. Eventually, I realized that Bandcamp does not provide data API of that type and I was really surprised to learn that, so I sat down and wrote my own solution.

Currently, my RESTFul API for Bandcamp provides four methodsartist, album, track and search, yet I am planning to implement a few more in the next couple of weeks. I also developed a couple of Vue/Vuetify components that utilize and showcase the API.

The API is free to use, you only need to create an API key and start consuming the data.

I hope you will find it useful! Have a great weekend!

The video to “Nineteen Eighty”

A couple of days ago I decided to put aside for a bit my Tony MacAlpine tribute album because I wanted to record a cover version of Joe Satriani’s “Nineteen Eighty”, which is one of my favorite songs in his “Shapeshifting” album. The track came out naturally, easy and pretty quick, so yesterday I also managed to shoot a video. I also included it to my mini album of Satriani covers, available on my Bandcamp profile. Enjoy watching and listening and don’t forget to support your local music artists!

The Next Song to my Tony MacAlpine Tribute Album

Yesterday was the premiere of “Sacred Wonder“, which is the next song to my “Violent Machine: A Tribute to Tony MacAlpine” album. This time I decided not to shoot a proper video but instead added simple visualizations to the music. You can watch it on my Facebook page or listen for free to the songs currently included in the album on my Bandcamp profile. Have a great weekend and do not forget to support your local artists, we all need it!

My cover of Tony MacAlpine’s “Winter in Osaka”

Today is the premiere of the video to my cover version of Tony MacAlpine’s “Winter in Osaka” from his 1994 album “Premonition”. This is a very special song for me, which I always wanted to cover. What also makes it special is that it features a very good friend of mine, Stepan Bahdikyan on the bass guitar. Have a great weekend, enjoy listening, and keep safe! Please, share if you like it, and thank you for your continued support! You can also listen and download the song for free from my Bandcamp profile as well as all of my other music releases.
