Downloading! :)

When's Michael's album due? ;)

When's it due? February or March, I think. It needs to be cold and dark all the time for me to work on anything, ha ha. The album is called Cedar Zero and will have eight songs recorded live with electric guitar, vocals, and viola.

still waiting.

I'm recording vocals tonight, overnight. Right now I'm waiting until it's late enough for the cops and ambulanes to quiet down. I didn't write any music all winter. The good news is that work has recently reduced hours to 40/week, so I have much more time to work on what I want. Also, I've started unplugging the ethernet cable five days a week, so there's even more time gained.

There will be a new C2 e.p. out in the next two weeks. If I pretend it's a 7", I suppose we could get away with putting three songs on it, but I want there to be four. One song is entirely finished, and two more are practically finished. The instrumentation is violin, viola, cello and voices.

It's good to be working on music again. For one thing, the new arrangement is a chance to break some thought habits about pop/folk forms. Also, it changes the way you write a melody when you're working without equal-tempered percussive chord instruments like guitar or piano. Maybe the end result will be pretentious or perplexing, but I like what I hear. Jennifer wasn't convinced at first that the idea would work, until I sang her a song made from a discarded string part.

Update April 16: Four songs are finished. Two more songs will be finished by the end of this weekend.
