Working on the bike piece, started over 4 times now, frustrating. I think the problem is that I went into this one with a concrete idea of what I wanted it to sound like, and spent too much time chasing after it when it didn’t work out the way my ears thought it would. The fun of these pieces is the discovery end of it all, and the fact that once I get started on them they sort of fill themselves in. I’m trying not to think about structure too much, which is hard because I’m such a sucker for a good song. Anywho, here’s clip of where it’s at now which should tell you where it’s headed……or not at all. Who knows? The bicycle.
In other news, it’s RECORD STORE DAY TOMORROW. Please for the love of all things musical and my career, go support a local record shop and buy some music. Like, actually purchase a physical cd, just for old times sake,k? Lots of stores are offering discounts and fun stuff, check out the site here to see if someone close to you is participating. No, amazon.ca does not count. I’ve been saving up for 3 weeks and I’m going to treat my ears to something great, I can feel it.
