Whenever i feel like i have no creativity, i take on some impossible challenge. Something that compels me to prove to myself that i’ve totally out of ideas. So i’ll be doing a 30 day challenge. 30 songs in 30 days. Including May 10th, 30 songs in one day (not expected to actually complete them all).
http://www.churchofinternet.com/30 days/ is the location where you can hear my progress each day.
I think i’ve got a good crop of predicable uncreative bullshit in there right now. So hopefully i’ll be really working out some magic by the end of this month.
I shoudl also be writing a “10 jokes a day” or “one script a week” thing. but i’m a loser.
I started and never finished these songs in the last couple days.
They’re like, not even 10% done. You need to name them. If you do, andi like the name, you get what this girl calls a “hand John”.. i think she says.
if this last one sounds a little fucked, that’s because its 3 voices, each in a different tempo, and time signature. Every 36 beats of the first track, all 3 tracks sync up again. I wanted to see how “modern composing” would sound on a gameboy. it sounds like ti does elsewhere. S hitty, intellectual, boring, and impossible to listen to if you’re not an asshole. (like that Steve Reich guy.. he’s dead right? he should be).
here are 7 demos of songs i just cant’ seem to finish.. i wrote these over the last 48 hours..
name them, and i will finish them. they need names.
Last i heard, the EP will be out on monday? That seems a little early to me, but if its true! All must attend this group on facebook to receive the EP, on pain of death.
by not joining this group, you are not getting my ep. By joining it, you are.
I participated in a 48 hour challenge, i had to write 5 songs.
Uh.. not all of these are good, but some re really lovely.
its 3 mp3s, but the last one is 3 songs.
Part 1 – warlord xigon
Part 2 – yacht rock ripoff
Part 3, 4, 5 – I love Final Fantasy (Questing, Fighting, Loving)
One a day, is my goal.
this is part of Time to Get Obscure, a compilation of songs written in unusual time signatures. This song has about 9 time signatures i think.
Here’s the mp3 demo of my latest creation, Danger Limit. There are lyrics, and they do include
He’s a man, alone in the world,
his emotions pour out like a flood
there’s a fire that burns in his heart
like a laser gave birth to his blood….
YOU’re the ONE!
So i forgot to mention that i had a show last night. At the toronto comedy mainstay Sunday Night LIve where i was the musial act. Essentially, i was the “ladies and gentlemen, lilly allen!’ of the night. I saw a lot of flashes going off while singing, so i am assuming i’ll be uploading some fan pics in the near future. But mostly what came of the night was a proposal to get me to compose the score to a musical about vampires falling in love.
So prepare yourself for that.
Thicker than water… ?
Love and Moons and things?
Kissy suck love?
Take a Bite out of crime, and love?
