I realized that I have recorded 12 pieces for the new album. Over 40m of music.
Title might be: Rain Poems
Poems don’t have to be words. I have had food that was a poem, seen images and paintings that were poems. I couldn’t tell you what makes one painting a poem while another won’t be.
Discovered a tip. Make a verse too long and see whether you can fill it with something interesting. When a verse is long one is pushed to try different things, maybe new things. One melody won’t do… there have to be other elements, more elements. The easy solution would be to make the verses shorter. More interesting was to rise to the length. Have been listening to the result many times now. Feels good.
I should make a list of tips for recording. Can think of several right off the bat.
