a room of one’s own, week twelve

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

And with this, the experiment pretty much ends. I have artwork on the way, and I have to decide on the order of tracks and such, but the week to week grind is done – 10 tracks in 12 weeks. This will be the final track on the album, whereas the others might get rearranged for optimum in-sequence enjoyment.

This is called “One Last Dance.”  It has a fake glockenspiel and fake acoustic guitars. If I may once again borrow a sentiment:

“Our music is sampled, totally fake
it’s done by machines, coz they don’t make mistakes”

–KMFDM, Sucks

No doubt about it, I suck too. It’s been fun, folks – watch this space for the downloads and such in the future, as well as a self-flagellating post-mortem on this whole experiment.

Week 10 was the second Bye week. So, here’s week 11, and next week is the last one. I haven’t done exactly what I set out to do, but this has been an educational experience, and I have 1 or 2 things in here I can actually work with.

This one is called “Robots die alone.” It’s pretty sad, and has an annoying drum sequence, and a lot of stuff going on, but here ya go.

I have grown very annoyed at myself for the excuses these posts have been making about the lack of time, so I’m gonna try and steer clear of that.

Inspirado came very easily for this. It’s about 4 minutes long, it’s relatively simple, and it was put together in about 3.5 hours total. The title will be “There is no escape.”

Enjoy, or don’t, if you find sampled acoustic guitars an abomination.
