This is from earlier today. People kept getting in my shot although it’s kind of a cool effect.

I edited a little music. Maybe the pictures get in the way. I want to enjoy life though. Such a nice day to sit downtown.

I skipped day thirteen and haven’t gotten back to blogging. You might be superstitious if you skip day 13. I’m thinking of just dating them and maybe a time stamp.

Yesterday, I went on a music marathon. I went through every song I know. I didn’t play quite as much as I hoped, but it was still fun.

I’m going to try to play at open mic tomorrow. I called and they said they have it every other Sunday. Hopefully she was correct that there is one tomorrow.

That awkward moment when you want to watch a show and have no idea what its name is.

Day 12

Did a little practicing today and busted out the harp! It’s pretty difficult to play keyboard, sing and play harp at the same time. I think it will get the wheels turning to finally record this harp part. Then I can finally finish this stop motion video I’ve been working on. Signing off for now.

Day 11

Mainly did some editing and did some practicing today. I’m using a electric keyboard sound to practice. The patch let’s me pan each set of samples to opposite channels. This really cleared up the mix. I feel it takes away from the live feel a hair, but the clarity is worth it. The low end just gets way too muddy.
I had an idea for a series of propaganda posters. Imitating old posters to advertise my music. We will see if this materializes.
I had some ideas for the design of my album cover. Vote on your favorite idea.
Drop a number in your reply:

1. Boat on the ocean getting eaten by a giant whale.
2. Boat on the sea cracked in half.
3. Text cracked in half.
4. Minimal Gradient Spray Paint
5. Cracked Pavement
6. Cracked Heart
7. Dissolving Cracked Heart

Day 7-10 - Blog Bust -

Haven’t blogged in a bit. Trying to take one day at a time, so I’m busting out 4 days at a time! Yaaaaa! Pretty much I’ve been practicing these past days. Today I added some sound textures to my recordings. I also came to terms about deleting some past background vocals. I decided to focus on ambient texture because the background vocals are frustrating me.

I’d like to add some harp parts to this one track. I might add them to my live performance. We will see how that goes. Gonna bust out the harp tonight and see how that goes. Blog bust over! Yaaaaaa!

That awkward moment when you realize no sound is coming out because your headphones aren’t plugged in.

That awesome moment…

That awesome moment when a really terrible headache goes away.

Day 6-

I think these text posts might be losing me followers. It’s unfortunate, because I really enjoy writing them. Nobody likes reading long text posts! OH THE PERIL! Oh well, I’m over it. On to my day!

I went to the coffee shop and bounced drums and bass to wave files! Going to use these to back me up, singing and playing, at open mic! I practiced them, a little bit ago, with the lights off. They sounded pretty good. I think I might go to the open mic on Sunday at the Cairo Hookah bar in West Chicago. The westest of the Chicagos.
