Norman Lamont and the Innocents at the Listening Room, Blue Blazer tomorrow night (Sunday) 8pm!
Domestic duties were discharged in the morning and Madame and Pest went off to Glasgow. I washed the windows, then sat down to do some recording. An element of consistency I want for the next lot of songs is to have Waveform loops behind them, so I decided to record some loops then see what songs they suited. After some time I got into some quietly demented stuff. Plague came in and grimaced. ‘Not your kind of music’, said I. ‘Not any kind of music’ said he.
I then put down a foundation guitar track for a long and desperately sad song called The Spell, which goes through several different musical sections. Finally, I managed to make up and record a riff in 15/8 that might form the basis of a song for The Band of Anonymity.
In the evening, after enjoying Dr Who, I edited some of these Waveforms into self-standing pieces, which are now on the In Progress page (or will be when they’ve crawled up the upload pipe.)
