long and fullfilling day which I am ready to end.
Had my first whoopsie with GarageBand and the Imac, I left the room for a minute and once the screen fell asleep I came back to find that my vocals were gone!
Gone from the entire CPU, I checked for a while and what I am hearing that this isn't the first time for users.
Apparently this is a bug.
Whatever though, yea it was a great freestyle and yes I could never re-create the vibe ever again but what was I suppossed to do? Was I gonna sulk and slouch the whole rest of the day?
What I ended up doing was what anybody would do, I re did the song.
I am happy with the end result, I will say that.
2017 has been a learning experience already.
I am learning things about my own style and urges to do things against the current.
Things are flowing very easily in my music world.
I have a long season in front of me, so we will continue to chip away at this new segment which I have been calling Situational Awareness.
This has to do with me creating in an atmosphere that is fluid as the approach itself.
The recording I am doing is very busy behind the music, I've got foosteps..knocking...phone sounds all going off in tiny spurts. While the recorder picks up everything.
Lotta extra noise that would not fly in a big production studio no way.
But when I'm doing it, the non musical sounds in the backround actually become the music and give my overall recording flavor. That is what I am learning.
Lo-fi has flavor.
I have known this forever, It's just that I am messing with the different levels of the flavor.
See how far I can take it.
I've made songs to where accomplished engineers where giving me mixing props, so I should feel I have the confidence to do these left field moves I'm into right now.
Of all of my sounds...To me, the Month of Mae series...in headphones are the most enjoyable of listening for for me.
There are so many textures that my ears where constantly being tested and teased.
That is the way.
To hear music.
Shouts to HomeboySandmans sister who is a phenomenal artist and to KoreatownOddity who inspires me to keep it raw, and the essence.
You two made my day today.
Gonna chop it up with the homie Pete, crushing fools.
