longish term project
On a recent road trip, my friend's iPod queued up some music that I had recorded with some friends a few years ago. We recorded it on my equipment but I had never gotten a copy of the CD. The raw files are still on my computer, but I don't have the software to listen to it anymore. I had actually completely forgotten about it, but hearing it again sparked a tiny flame of motivation in me.
I have been half heatedly dredging up some of the better stuff I've written over the last couple years with the intention of doing more serious recordings. A good chunk of that stuff has appeared on this blog as quick webcam videos. It's going alright, but I go back and forth between being pleased with a track and hating my singing voice. Recording and mixing are very time intensive processes that tends to bring out the critical perfectionist in me. We'll see how it goes, but I'm hoping to have a CD full of material finished eventually. Fingers crossed.
