Success! We have finally managed to record a song for this newest album with sounds that we like! It isn't finished, what with all the fiddling, mastering hoohaw that will need to happen, but it is still a big success. We had been unhappy with the recording sounds we were getting up to this point and not sure why it wasn't coming together like in our heads. And the song that we find this success? The Modern Day Pirate Song. It's sounding just lovely.
One of the things that I think worked is that we had a live video recording of the song already. I felt like we already had an idea with how the sounds should come together from this recording. We didn't want our album to sound completely different to our live performance, but we did want to give folks a little bit more than a live performance for listening.
So now, can you see where I want to go with this? Now I want to do a live performance video for more songs to try this initial approach in getting those initial thoughts for song recording. I have this idea already for 'Fly by Venus and Mars'. It's a love song and I thought we could do something playing the song under a canopy with a night sky backdrop. I have to figure out how to make a canopy, yes, that's one problem. There are a few others, like maybe we should be in romantic type of clothing of some sort, and maybe David needs a haircut....or a hat. Things to ponder.
All in all good problems to have in this renewed day of lovely. Yes, Saskatchewan, sometimes you surprise me in good ways and yesterday with +21 degrees was a very good surprise. I love that. Keep it up. Today looks almost equally as lovely.
Happy Thursday :)
