I haven’t been able to record for a while since upgrading my computer. Today I had enough of my dry spell and set up my laptop to record this little track. All in all I spent about 20 minutes on this song and it was pretty fun to record.
Although my gear is limited, I like how this little guy turned out. When my gear is back up and running I won’t be recording on such a limited capacity.
The sun is filling my room, the weather is amazing and I just had to.
Go outside and enjoy the weather!
So I haven’t had the chance to post much music this year, but I can explain! I did one of those super nerdy computer builds lately and I basically have a computer that rivals NASA. The problem is that my computer is now “too current” for my crappy protools and recording gear, so I’m going to have to upgrade.
I am really starting to miss it - the whole process of recording and posting. I have still been playing a whole lot, and I have some plans for my music this year. In the meantime, I have the option of recording it through my laptop all sketchy and annoying like.
I have so many weird little things on the go each day that I want to post on here, but I just can’t yet. It’s weird how I made a blog to do creative things and it got ahead of me so quickly that now I’m doing creative things that I can’t post about. That being said there are a million little things I could and should be doing to keep my end of this creative adventure alive. I’m going to smarten up and post on this lonely blog more often, promise!
I want to get in the habit of posting more of my process or test tracks. Often these lead to bigger ideas or turn into songs. Sometimes they just get buried in my hardrive.
I’ve been working on a secret project inspired by We Are Not Special. Details to come in 2013.
A new way of listening to things. Change the angles and begin again.
I made my mouth into a river.

Always been a huge fan of Metric. They were the first “real band” I listened to as a 13-year-old girl playing Sim City in my bunk bed. I thought I was so cool.
They’ve changed over the years, and my fave albums are still from pre 2010 but this album is their best in an album or two in my opinion. Nothing beats Old World, Underground, but I’m glad the music has changed with the age of the audience; always a good thing.
