and now the news: I will take part in RPM ’09. RPM is a project in which you have to record a complete album in just the 28 days of February. I wanted to join this project already last year but I had no time to finish enough stuff. It has not be THE album but AN album, as it says on the website. unfortunatly the stuff I finished last year wasn‘t even good enough for AN album if you know what I mean. the album is supposed to be written and recorded in February and only in February. by the 1st of March it has to be send to the USA. burnt on a CD.

I hope I can finish enough material. for this project every artist has to produce at least 35 minutes. that is a lot. with let us say 10 songs that means an average length of 3:30 minutes. that is a lot of work to do.

last year I calculated that I had to finish 1:15 minutes per day. a little wrong because I have to add the time the CD needs to arrive the USA. let’s say it takes a week (even though I already received mail from the USA within 2 days) then I would have to finish 1:40 minutes each day. it is possible. I don‘t doubt that. in fact you never just produce one or two minutes in one sit.
normally I finish a song with an average quality in about two days. the rest of the time I need for finishing a song is just polishing and fixing. depending on how long it takes to finish the song themselves I can spend one or two days with polishing.

yes I really think that it is possible to finish AN album in less than 28 days. it is a challenge but it is possible. hope I can manage my normal work (I told you about it yesterday). I have to finish three articles for lotek64 and I still have to do a lot of work to my album… well, well… let’s wait and see. otherwise I just put my finger into my anus and sing „Old McDonald“ for half an hour :p mmmmh… I like this thought…

ehm, ya… follow the ufo, later MM

2 new tracks and „I_HATE_U_ALL“

hello partypeople. it’s new music Sunday: the first new track is located at 8BC: HERE

the second new track is located here. it is a „live“ version of „slickwater enemies“. it is only half live (but it is not from Black Mesa) because it’s only a record of a rehearsel Sandy and I make on 17th October 08. Sandy came to Germany for that weekend and we met up of course (just to remind you: Sandy has moved to America some years ago and visits her family in Germany from time to time). Sandy fixed some bad harmonies and made some changes to the bassline.

CHECK IT OUT


„I_HATE_U_ALL“ will be released soon

I have read the message of Matthias from 20kbps Records. he lost my release because of a hard disk crash and forgot to tell me :) so everything was a misunderstanding and the „20 MIN NOISE MIX BY THE MM PROJECT“ will soon be released. of course you get further notices as soon as it is out :) see you soon

NEWS NEWS NEWS!!!

you might have noticed it, I use a new name for my music. this project now is called „The MM Project“. the reason: on discogs I found several other artists with the same name „MM“. one of them in Belgium. I don‘t want to be confused with other artists and I also don‘t want any legal stuff and pay money because of my artist name. „The MM Project“ is still recognizable enough and can easily be connected with my old stuff because of the remaining „MM“.


and I have a new track out which is also part of a great mix. the german electronic music (and naked mole rat) forum „Electronic Attack“ regularly collects tracks for their monthly mix. I made a track called „I will rule the World“ for the second issue.

get the mix here: CLICK CLICK CLICK!!!
and you can find the single track here: CLICK CLICK CLICK!!!


I also have some new music news: „tweokological techniques“ is almost finished, I hope I can finish it this year and find a label for it. others projects are several tracks for compilations and some remixes.


at the same time I started writing a BIG Zelda article for lotek64. recently I started to play all the Zelda games and that inspired me to write about this awesome series of games!!! I‘ll tell you more about it as soon as this article is finished and released!!!

my energy seems to be back

this mood change was fast. maybe I just needed different projects to work on. battleofthebits.org started a new compo called „3xTheme“. in this compo we have to make music for 3 different categories: „Dead!“, „Jump‘n'Run“ and „Shmups“ (you know Shoot‘em Ups). each song must be realized with a different format. I choosed 8kmod for „Dead!“, 24kmod for „Jump‘n'Run“ and NSF for „Shmups“. additionally NSF is a format which I like more and more. FamiTracker isn‘t as uncomfortable as I thought in the beginning.

than I am doing a remix for an artist whose name I won‘t reveal until the remix is released. let me surprise you a little bit. and I will take part in the Famicon Compo in August :)

I still have no idea when I will finish „tweakological techniques“. I also still need to find a label for it and I don‘t even have a small idea where to release it. at the moment I want to release on different labels as much as possible and don‘t wanna use the old contacts like Tonmagnet. sometimes I feel like they only release my stuff because one of the guys there (Daniel btw) is quite good friend. and I don‘t wanna take any advantages out of friedship and so on. btw: listen to his podcast Leinepest (in German).

oh and I almost forgot to tell you that lotek64 #26 is out. unfortunatly I had no possibility to contribute anything to this issue but I will be back in issue #27!!! check it out at www.lotek64.com.

cu and don‘t forget to follow the little red UFO!!!
