A live improv techno song with Eurorack doing percussion (and growls, and some weird melodic stuff) and Future Retro 777 doing the bass. I was doing this while smoking ribs outside. Loop-based, but hopefully simple and fun.

I streamed this. You can check it out,

Pseudo-epic-trying guitar ballad.

Notes: I tried to steal chords from pop songs, but it was too hard to figure out how they were supposed to sound good together.

Starting in earnest:

16:35 - 18:50. 2h 15m

Really? It sure felt longer than that.

Sunday, August 20, 15:00-17:21 Modular + Guitar Jam.

First 30m was setting up the studio and getting some initial tuning and patches in for the modular synthesizers, and fiddling around with some initial melodies that might be okay.

I kind of wanted this to be done, I didn't particularly like the end result too much. The mood changes too much and I wasn't sure I wanted to go back and fix it all.

Summertime hot dogs and burgers.

I started this song in about 1.5 hours for OHC (I submitted it late). I got some encouragement to finish it, so I'll aim for that during WeeklyMusic.

Sunday, July 23, 2017. 11:15 - 12:30. Going to do this song over again and work on the performance parts. Re-recorded most of the rhythm guitar and redid some bass and added an ending.

I started again around 2-3 PM maybe? I forgot to record the new start time.

Including OHC time, I probably spent about 3h 45m on this, with a lot of it recording takes of the guitar parts. My guitar playing is still not that solid but recording it at least reinforces what I need to look at.

My cat passed away this week, so my ability to concentrate is a little shot. I really loved Timmy, he was a beautiful affectionate creature. RIP Timmy.

I received some direct feedback on the last piece, so I'm going to be a little more careful this time. Live guitar parts, live bass parts, fake drum parts.

Chords: Am Em F C / C Dm G F

Time: 16:00 - 17:45. Total time: 1h 45m
