Single Status Update
For about two weeks now, I've been working on a new song in Reason 2.5, trying to get some progress made on it. The creativity and drive to work on it seems to come in spurts, and once the spurt is used up, the song seems to go nowhere again.
The problem is, these spurts don't last too long. Tonight's ended up adding 24 bars to the song, a new sound, and fixing the 2nd bass sound I have (the sound is what I call a "whoomp" bass). I believe part of the creative spurt was brought on by listening to "Mahadeva" by Astral Projection (bad-ass goa track), some other goa, and eating some pho for dinner. That combination may sound odd, and it does to me too, but that's the best explination I can come up with.
I'd like to find a way to make these creative spurts last longer and become more productive, but I'm having trouble figuring out how. If anyone has a suggestion, I'd be glad to hear it.
I can't complain much, as musically I've been dry for about a year and a half now, if not a bit longer. My trip to Japan somehow revitalized me and around halfway through my trip, music started flowing again. First a trickle, and as of late, much more.
And if anyone's curious, the song is du.edu/~ahunt/On%20Another%20Day.mp3]here. This is a work-in-progress, so it may sound rough in some areas (including mastering/EQing errors). File is ~2.44mb, and is not goa trance.
