January 2016

2 days into the new year, and we have hit the ground running. Claire is completing the drums for FOUNDATION and the lyrics/vocal lines are starting to take shape. 

Just as exciting, all of the primary tracking for MCP is now complete! Using Arturia's brilliant Spark virtual drum machine, I was able to cherry pick my favourite drum sounds of Yesteryear for MCP: a spoonful of Simmons here, a dash of Linn drums there ... blended into a zesty soup of analogue drum synth goodness. :)

Winter has traditionally been a time when I get a lot of writing done, and this year will not be an exception as the next item on the docket is song 2 for FOUNDATION AND EMPIRE. Simultaneously writing, recording, mixing, and releasing multiple releases is a task I would rather not do again, but now that I am in the thick of it I am beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully, the finished product will be worth the effort.
