These are some pictures taken on our family holiday in a German area called “Franken”, which is not far from our home. As this dates back to mid August, these are belated impressions.
After a week away, I began those recordings I told you about. Most of them went so well, I would never have expected this some weeks before. In the beginning I was quite uncertain about the use of recording ideas (jotted down on paper) whose date of origin is 2006. Is there a “best before…?
As soon as the first files gathered in my computer, one thing was clear: it didn’t matter at all. I simply went on from that point, until it was done. Only basic tracks, though…
It’s enough for at least a year’s work of selecting, cutting and overdubbing. Most of the recordings are not meant as blog posts, but why not post them anyway? Let’s talk about it later… My main concern for the near future will be finding a drummer to complete the sessions, maybe a singer for some of the material. Besides these songs-to-be there are some recordings I will post much sooner to preserve their spontaneity instead of trying to turn them into something “elaborate”.
By the way, those holidays were great!
