Here is my first complete take of a new song I’m really into:
Thanks to the enthusiastic example and coaching of my friend from work, Chach, whom I first met when she shared her paints with me and others at a Yes by Yes Yes (later Yes & Yes Yes) un-conference retreat in Palm Springs, I have migrated my clunky old spreadsheet into a nifty Airtable and it has made keeping track of recordings and postings way easier, which will enable me to fill in some gaps, such as:
- music videos I posted to Youtube but not Facebook, or vice versa
- performances solid enough that I want to post the audio portion to my Soundcloud
- and perhaps most relevant here, catching up my catalog here on my own personal blogge
Mildly related also is that I am now writing my own songs, and the li’l database is happy to keep track of that distinction for me, too.
I’ve written a new song and have been learning how to play it. This is the first demo version I’ve felt comfortable enough to share more widely:
Quick new demo by dBx:
A cover of a favorite VU song as a waltz, for the Layers of Meta album UNTITLED 1, performed by small pleasurecraft (Christian on vocals, lead, and rhythm uke & Dan Brodnitz on backing vocals, guitar, keyboards, and production).
