Life the Dream

02005-08-09 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

I remembered this story today, but had forgotten the exact wording. Google found a quote for me:

Once upon a time I, Chuang Tzu, dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of following my fancies as a butterfly, and was unconscious of my individuality as a man. Suddenly, I awoke, and there I lay, myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming that I am now a man.

Yesterday evening I worked on Up Close for a while and today I got the first song into enough shape to call Jon and ask for some bass… Been listening to the track over and over. Catchy yet sophisticated. Slamming filigree… Jon will come over on Thursday to lay down some Lakland.

I would love to share these songs with you as they are developing, but since many of you still seem to be attached to CDs I can’t… Why, you ask? Because the stores want fresh and new product and they don’t like it if individual songs have already been released on the net. So, as long as you and many other people still want CDs, I will have to comply to a certain extent with the demands of stores. Wake me up when everybody is ready for my future – where you have a choice: you can wait for the album or you can download tracks as they are finished… (or even as these tracks are taking shape, changing shape, growing up…)

Another lovely thunder storm… I was in the middle of laying down a mix when the electricity dropped for a moment, but my UPS saved the work.
