you said (2m:02s) An electric guitar instrumental. There’s something 50’s about this one.
pulled in (2m:33s) Simple background with some solo guitar work. A little on the dark side.
hwy 100 (2m:37s) Not 45mph, not 65 mph. Not stop and go either.
supposed to be (2m:19s) Some piano and keyboard action here. The drama starts at 38 seconds.
4 x 4 (2m:19s) 4/4 time and 4 tracks overlayed. A bit gritty sounding.
nola minneapolis (2:37) Where’s my beignet and coffee? Very simple.

I’m happy with this batch of noise. Things are starting to sound more holistic. Things are melding together smoother than before. The sound is more whole – more balanced. I’m basically learning the keyboards while figuring out the whole ‘slappa-da-bass’ thing. Playing the digital drums (and messing around the digital samples) is a blast. Down the road these things will get sewn together into something that resembles a complete song. For now I’m having fun creating sketches and experimenting with the software – seriously this is an amazing way to kill time. I think ‘blue box’ and ‘memory zero’ are my favorites here.

These two have some promise to grow into something more. Two very different tempos. Two very different sounds. I started writing some lyrics to ‘undergrad hiatus’ and was looking back at some old stuff I wrote. Wow – not very good to say the least. Although i’m happy to report none of the lyrics were about me sitting at a red light, ugh. So, that part of the song is incomplete for the moment. As soon as I feel like James Brown i’ll add to ‘big willow.’ It could be a while. Enjoy.
I had the day off. After sleeping in I thought, “why not record a cover of something.” It just seemed like that kind of day, I dunno. So after a coffee, bagel and apple lunch (breakfast) I set out to record a cover of something. And here that is – maybe one of these day i’ll get a ‘for real’ microphone. It is a talking heads orginal of course.
this must be the place
This one gets constructed and deconstructed
