Strange as it may seem, I was true to my word last Saturday and actually spent the day being productive. I managed to capture only one live performance, which will likely be manipulated before showing up in either a Controlled Dissonance or Nest of Disorder track. After I finished that, I did some work on some other audio projects that I haven’t really thought about in a while – mainly to pad out the compilation project in the event that I get a few more entries, but not quite enough for a full release (yes – I may cheat a little on this project). I’m honestly hoping that these tracks never see the light of day: not because I dislike them, but because I would rather the compilation get enough input from other artists.
As alluded to in my last post, I got a page up for the new instrument. The Kvetchbox is pretty simple, and a tad lame, but it filled a need. The need was less for a simple and lame electroacoustic instrument and more for the satisfaction of having accomplished something. Sometimes I need to step back from a plethora of unfinished projects and tackle one simple thing to regain the motivation to finish up other projects. I’m hoping this will be that impetus and inspiration.
An old Controlled Dissonance track appeared in an ambient mix release this morning. “Filled With Stars”, from Convoluted Vol. 2, starts off the mix entitled “Explorations: Side Two”, available for download here: http://soundcloud.com/aim23
I haven’t had the opportunity to listen to any of the other mixes, but if they’re as good as this one, they’re worth hearing.
Alright. I think that’s all for now. Until next time, remember: caveat emptor, motherfuckers.
