Buds notes on V1 - http://www.macjams.com/song/58930

Particledots and I have entered the 2010 RPM Challenge as Month of Sundays 2010 http//www.rpmchallenge.com/...

We have to create ten songs by February 28th. During the first week we managed to get six demos going. Our approach is to work on all the songs simultaneously and get to the finish line one by one in the last week.

To further complicate things - Bryn is working in Logic and I use GarageBand so all of our communication is in the form of aiff files. This means that certain choices made early on cannot be reversed - only altered.

This demo has four guitar tracks and one guitar pitched as bass (because I was too lazy at the time to switch instruments). Then there's a basic drum loop and a synth loop added last. Presumably the song will develop structural and melodic changes along the way - but I decided to start with a very basic idea.


Bud laid out the genesis of this track above. (I had no idea you had played a lazy man's bass Bud)

In terms of audio files, he has been throwing them at me left, right and centre and I have been doing my best to throw them back at him. I believe we are somewhere in the region of 10 songs now (in the space of a week or so) some of which are closer to being finished than others...but we still have more than 20 days don't we?

This version of 'Thursday' was done by me during a marathon mixing session over the weekend.

I added some choppy organs, did some stuff with drones took a few things out and twiddled a few knobs

This is the result - still quite a way to go....but really not that far
