This past weekend, I pretty much locked myself up in my studio and worked on music. Sure, I took the time to eat, sleep, and of course drink. I even showered once or twice! But music was my focus. I did the usual stuff – practice the drums, listen to some new music (hint: RCRDLBL_ is your friend). But I also worked on music creation.
First, I finally took the time to record Deme. The bulk of my time was spent writing and recording Cnidaria. I’ve created dedicated posts for each song individually. You can follow the links for both those songs to download the mp3s and to give you opinions.
The other new thing I did this weekend was to join an online community of electronica artists called SectionZ (see the sidebar for a link to where you can hear SectionZ music for free). I uploaded Deme, Cnidaria, and Forward Arrow to the site. So far the response has been good – 1 vote of 7 out of 10 for Forward Arrow and 1 votes for 8 out of 10 for Deme. Apparently, both need some production work, which I’m glad to do. Look for updates to those songs!
The last thing I did late Sunday night was create some cover art for my hypothetical first CD. You see the result in this post.
It’s been a long time since I had a weekend like that. It was nice to just immerse myself in a creative endeavor. I look forward to more weekends like it.
