It’s Feb 10th today and I just wanna give you a little status report about my album. First of all the album is called „Who Are You And Why Are You TV?“. Long title, but I love it. The artwork will be done by Martin Schemitsch who also draws Lo*Bert, the comic shorts in Lotek64.
At the moment I have 5 songs done and another one in the making. I will sing a lot on this album, 2 of my 5 songs I have so far contain vocals already.
I‘m sure this album will be much better than my last years RPM album and even better than all my albums so far. I tried out a new way of production. This time the whole album is based upon samples and loops from libraries, that I take to be inspired. Most of the time it is just one riff or melody-sample and I‘m building the rest of the song around them. Sometimes it is just a percussion loop that defines the rhythm and/or sound of the song. I also use a lot of improvising. Letting the main melody play and record many notes to it. After that I correct the timing, delete some mistakes and add some additional notes. The song I‘m currently working on is mainly based on that concept. Melodies turn out to be much more alive and funky with that method.
I hope I can upload some songs soon. There is an RPMcast again, unfortunatly not longer run by Joshua Wentz. He decided not to take part in any way in this years RPM which I think to be very sad. I loved his calm voice in 2009s podcast-episodes, even though he had a cold in the last days of February.
I also met many great artists from the chipmusic scene on the RPM website. Dauragon is preparing something and the awesome zan-zan-zawa-veia (long but great artist name), too. I guess there are some more who I just didn‘t notice.
So far for this time,
Follow the little red UFO!
