'Paragraph Black' by Seafolk
So it’s nearly July but not quite. This means that I’m still just one month behind in my song-each-month project. Here’s three guitar loops stacked on top of eachother. If you don’t like it, I don’t care. Well I do, but I try not to. Who’s the real winner? Music. Perhaps.
So here is April’s song, posted in June. Slowly slipping further behind with this project. Such is the way of these things.
This was a composition that’s three older songs strung together. I’ve had this done for a while to be honest, but didn’t upload it as and didn’t like it, On reflection, it’s probably not as poor as I thought.
I’ve recorded quite a few tracks of recent, but they’re all half done or just not right. I think I’m over thinking things as this song-every-month project rolls on, whereas before I’d kick any old 2 minute wonder out to on the web. Must try less.
Astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have assembled a comprehensive picture of the evolving universe – among the most colorful deep space images ever captured by the 24-year-old telescope. Researchers say the image, in new study called the Ultraviolet Coverage of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, provides the missing link in star formation. The Hubble Ultra Deep Field 2014 image is a composite of separate exposures taken in 2003 to 2012 with Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys and Wide Field Camera 3.
So here is March’s track – published in April. Currently running one month behind on this project. However, this tricky bastard took a good while to sort. I wrote the main part on keyboard, recorded it and thought it’d be ok to fiddle around with the arrangement afterwards. Bad choice. Trying to move entire chunks of songs and individual tracks on Audacity is not good at all. I’ve changed the track a lot since the original version, and as such I really needed something like Ableton Live to do this. You can hear some things are a the tiniest millisecond out on certain bars, but this took days of editing to get to this state. I know, doesn’t sound it right? Saying all that, I really like the main guitar riff that stomps along and the addition of loads of movie threats adds a bit of gravitas to proceedings. You can’t beat film stars shouting. Well, you can, but they just shout more.
