a new beginning....


i am starting an "experiment" that I hope will manifest into an full length album (my deadline is one year from now, when I turn 30!... how poetic!) At the same time, I am also trying to let go, so lets just pretend I didn't even mention the whole album thing Anyway, I am recording myself on a four track recorder, then mixing down to a single 1/4" tape, using essentially only first takes. This is an opportunity for me to learn on many levels: performance of drums, bass/key combo, guitar, vocals; song-writing; recording; and perhaps most importantly - letting go. I'm starting at the barest of bones, and seeing how things progress. here' a link to take one.

by the way - sorry the file is so huge - I sampled the incoming signal at 192 khz as opposed to the standard (and lame-ass) 44.1 khz. feel free to delete it from your computer, i won't be offended at all.
