Nope. I have not fallen off the face of the earth or found myself in horrible car accident. I just haven’t posted anything lately because my progress on this song has been so incrementally slow the last couple weeks that it didn’t seem worth it.
I’ve been wanting to get to this progress report for a few days but I just haven’t had time. In fact, I haven’t even listened to this for a couple days, so I’ve kinda lost track of what all I did with it this week or what it sounds like. I remember I built up the break a little and I recorded the vocals yet again.
I am so glad that I decided to track the vocals again.
*Side note. I used to have a very good command over punctuation and grammar but it’s been so long since I was in school that I can’t remember the rules. Sorry.*
Well, as the title implies I did work on the song a little bit this week but not much. I think I re-tracked the vocals about a week ago but I didn’t get around to listening to them or chopping and lining them up until this week. All in all, not a whole lot has changed about the song. Ignore how bright and airy it sounds. I’ve struggled a lot with that in the overall mix with every song I’ve made so far. I plan to bounce down each track and strip out most of the FX I’ve thrown in along the way so I can get more of a clean slate and work without taxing my processor with the double duty of running the synths/samplers along with the FX at the same time. I didn’t even set up the buses as I went along this time or write out and color my labels properly, so it’s a big mess that’s gonna take some time to clean up.
Um, yeah, nope, haven’t really made any significant progress on my current song project. It’s been something of a busy week and that’s slowing me down. I am happy to report though that I am recovering well from my recent illness and
Well, there’s no audio clip with this week’s progress report… and that is because I did not make any significant progress on “Feelin’ the Wind.” Two solid weeks of making very little progress. – And why is that? Well, I’ve been pretty ill for the past couple weeks and had some other things I couldn’t not do, so something had to give. Last weekend I had a short set at the OE and this weekend I’m playing piano on a friend’s album.
Hello, Internet land. So here’s what’s happened with this song over the past week. Did you listen to it and last week’s post? Quite a difference, no?
So – Here’s the progress I made on the next Mamma Ouija song in the first week.
If you listen through the entire three minutes, you will hear that the arrangement is very rough. Maybe even ear splittingly rough, but that’s how I begin to construct one of these things. The break is a big mess,
Okay, so I’ve been telling myself for at least a month now that I’m going to give writing regular blog posts a shot and I keep not getting around to it. I’m a busy woman, you know. At any rate, I took an entire month off from my song project, (okay maybe a bit more than a month,) but I’m working on it again. I have to admit, I am feeling very torn at the moment as to whether I should continue with it or not.
My Lord, I feel like March’s song just took forever and a day to finish! This probably has something to do with my daughter having both strep throat and spring break this month and also having migraines and sinus problems myself. But, it’s finished, I like it, and it’s time to move on to the next one. (Yay!)
This song is the second installment of my 2017 self imposed musical challenge to create a full arrangement of one of my songs each month. This little song I made here is one of my favorites. Or at least,
