I am currently working on three projects.
1. Holiday Album – I have a little over half of the album finished and have until May to finish the rest. Am wondering about the title again. Came up with a new list of titles under current consideration.
2. Up Close – follow-up CD to La Semana. I have one song written and loads of ideas. The concept and the palette has been established and the overall sound is in my head.
3. Yet untitled follow-up to In the Arms of Love. This will be something very different. I am thinking of doing a solo album using this portable recorder. I have started to research spaces where I would like to record. The kind of spaces I have in mind are: chapels or other buildings that have a great reverb or an interesting vibe, natural spaces such as caves that have interesting reverb/vibe. The idea is to travel, find a space, set up a microphone, and improvise a piece on my guitar. Audio postcards. Musical letters. Impressions. I would also do field recordings of any sounds that captivate me and then edit everything together in my studio.
Possible titles: Moments in Time (from the scene in the movie Blade Runner, when the last replicant is dying. His last words are: All those Moments… will be lost… in time… like tears in rain.)
Tears in the Rain would be more poetic.
I know, I am trying to capture a fleeting moment, thereby making it less fleeting – but, still true nontheless…
