Day 11. ‘<3 The monster, and your Friday funny’
I’ve finished tracking my ‘monster song.’ String quartet, drums, percussion, bass, piano, numerous guitar bits, both nylon and electric, and vocal things.
Sometimes creativity can be hindered by trying to fit your genre. It’s something I’ve never been especially good at and I know I am not Robinson Crusoe on that score. (Pardon the pun, but not bad!) A wonderful sense of peace is to be found in ignoring the invisible ‘they.’ For a complete non-entity, it is surprising how efficient ‘they’ can be at creating roadblocks. Frankly, I don’t know what this song is, but I am having loads of fun with it.
And my genre? Is just the sum of all parts of an interesting musical life.
Mixing begins tomorrow. I love this bit. Much safer than kitchen mixing. I once set fire to over 3 acres of land in a bit of a mishap. A story for another day. Here’s a totally unrelated pic for today’s story. (Stolen from my friend Rowan, ta.) I just thought it was a good Friday funny.
