This was fun to make. In 48 Hours we made a film from writing to final output onto a DVD. We then submitted it for competition. We made it to Best of Washington DC, which was great. Hopefully we will continue to improve each year. Its not easy to make something great in 48 hours, its not easy to make something great under any circumstance.
Here is a collection of tracks that are probably as finished as they will ever get, so time to export them.
Hey, some of you might know I have dabbled with creating music on and off for many years. By publishing some of my recordings I hope to solidify this part of myself. It’s a passion I really want to pursue more vigorously in the future. But, if that doesn’t happen, well, at least I will have created the possibility of these songs being heard by an audience.
I might as well begin with pretty much the first recordings I ever made. This EP, entitled, Death to Lovers was written out of a necessity to bundle and export vast amounts of anguish I experienced following a bad break-up in college. I have since attempted to write a lot of songs in the absence of horrible pain, and it is possible, but there is nothing quite like the raw expression that goes into an EP like this one.
I want to thank Todd Baran for noticing my music and inviting me to come record in his living room studio in Kirksville,MO in 2003. We recorded on a large analog reel to reel recorder. It was a great experience. He is featured on some of the tracks and provided a lot of guidance along the way to the point of acting as producer as well as engineer.
This project was completed a couple months back but I should share it. It was a major chunk of work and I’m proud of it. I collaborated with Eidolon Films for this one. Full credits on Vimeo.
