Songwriting Seminar

by admin — last modified Jun 01, 2005 12:00 AM

Today I attended a songwriting seminar with Jason Blume. It was very hit-oriented, not that there's anything wrong with that. All in all, a lot of good advice and confirmation on stuff I already knew.

There's still one more day of the seminar to go, but I think I can already recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about songwriting.

Another day, another track

Bass track down - and that should be the last track for the single recording. Only mixing and mastering left now (and there I'll get good help from my producer (I really, really need to fix his webpages).

Guitar track in

Got the guitar tracks for the single in today. The slide/whammy part took longer than expected, but turned out pretty neat.

OP Musikk had finished my bass today too. They had done a very good job on it.

The day after ...

Reunions are fun, but does involve alcohol. I won't be doing much on the project today - I'll try to put new strings on the guitar so I'm ready for recording next week, though.

Video project, single release

by admin — last modified May 28, 2005 12:00 AM

There's timing issues with getting one of the locations (at a hospital)and it is also hard to schedule the cast together at the same time (10-15 people!).

The good thing is that this could possibly allow us to release the single: "(take two and) Call Me in The Morning" earlier (that's the first track on the demo collage).

Stay tuned for further information. I will from now on attempt to update the blog on a semi-daily basis to try to give you an insight in how it is to run ones' own record company.

Bass needs a tuneover

by admin — last modified May 28, 2005 12:00 AM

Given the recent developments on the video, I need to give the bass a tuneover before I record the bass for the single.

I've decided to take it in to OP Musikk (no website) - a workshop I got recommended. I hope they're good and quick; I have scheduled to record the bass on tuesday next week.

Tonight I'm going to the 9nth grade reunion (college, I think - you may correct me if I'm wrong) - which happens to be at the same location as my producers studio (I really need do fix up his webpages soon).

Web finally up again

Web is now finally up again. The machine at my dayjob crashed, and I didn't get the restore before now. The webpages are now hosted at an ISP, so they will be more secure
