One song a day keeps the doctor away

Doing the trick composing/writing/arranging/recording one song in one day maximum. I have 4 days so I keep counting new songs.

July 2011

Hey!

I’m currently composing some new songs. I’m making demos as well.

I’ve recently played keyboards live for an electro project of a friend, Vincent, called Grand Atlas Mondial. Some more gigs to come in the fall with this band.

2 new dudes and a an attempt at coherence

banjo, dobro, jaguar

Hey look at what someone lent me: two new dudes in the house, a banjo et a resonator guitar. I’ve been recording some ukulele and banjo and did some mixing. So far I have 10 songs for the folk album and 9 tunes for the electric record. I keep on working and concentrating. I’ll probably still compose and record a few songs for each album. Then I’ll choose what I’ll put or reject for the final records. Or maybe I’ll keep every track, I’ll see if every tune is coherent with each album. For me, an album is not a pile of songs put on one cd, but something that show (an) intention(s)/attempt(s).

I’m glad I have some time to 100% invest on this process. Composing and recording are among the things I love the most in life.

Recording and playing

Still composing, writing, recording and mixing. And mixing the mixes, remixed from the first mixes, if you know what I mean. Making a record takes some time. I try to keep as much first takes as I can, because they’re true, not scholar, uniquely clumsy. So basically mixing a song takes more time than recording it. I love doing both.

If you’re in Fribourg this saturday (July 3rd), don’t miss Spectacle playing in the Bilboquet after the football match. I’m an additional musician, playing piano, organ, guitars and effects. It should start around midnight.
