song a day #27

for self referntial afficiondoes:
love jamboree (for you)
dedicated to everyone who has listened to any of my songadays so far or ever.

fun and crazy.
does "afficianadoes" have an "e"?

getting excited and sad to finish. to set the record straight: i know at one point i said "i will do this for at least 30 days or as long as i can." or something to that effect. well, 30 days feels good at this point. i am definitely going to revisit this idea. but i want there to have been a bit of change in my method for recording and the instruments at my disposal, so that each incarnation of songaday is unique. my "pretend in my brain" plan is to try and do this twice a year. summer and winter. so in ten years i'll have amassed 600 songs. crazy. maybe maybe not. depends on lots of constraints and the will of the futuremen.

i'd like to talk about those limited means and methods for a brief moment. as an artist, i am a fan of limitations and constraints. as such, i have a weirdly limited collection and vocabulary with my musical abilities and instruments. but i like that. and i'll be excited to watch it change. so for songaday, i've been using (primarily): a casio sk-1 teeny weeny classic sampling keyboard, a yamaha psr-12 (found in the trash, the same model i took two weeks of hated keyboard lessons with when i was 10. without a power source, i use the ac adapter from my zip drive that always falls out), red skull my famous drummer drum machine (dr-770), a huge pile of toy instruments (xylophones, accordion, fluteys, mouth harps, etc etc), whatever is around me, my voice, and my supercomputer (whom i love deeply). i don't use any effects, unless it occurred in the drum machine. no vocal manipulation, just layers. no midi, just me. um, what else? this has clearly become for my own benefit... oh! where noted, the kawasaki (!) digital percussion machine. more stuff, too.

ayup. okay. 3 more to go!

Okay, whatcha mean no layers? What's the difference between a layer and a track?

Me am confused.

i do use layers.
layers of tracks...
um...
lots of tracks, creating a sense of dense layering...
i didn't mean to indicate otherwise...
is this making sense?

probably not...
