The songs are coming along nicely. Here’s a pic of the tracker I am using. A tweak of some lyrics and then I should have some demos to share. I am really having a lot of fun with these songs, especially my homage to Blue Monday vs The Walk.
I am just about on track for completing 14 in 28 days. I managed to record some vocals, and once I have finished the lyrics to the others I’ll get them done.
Hey, how is FAWM going?
I’m glad you asked. Usually, at about this time, I am falling behind and already considering quitting. However, so far things are going really well.
I began with a concept in my head. I wanted to pay homage to my late 70s early 80s musical soundtrack. In particular the music on Fiction and Factory records. That’s basically The Cure, Joy Division, New Order, Cabaret Voltaire, Section 25 and a few others. I came up with a name for the concept ‘Narrative Assembly’ can you see what I did there? And, well, it has been going very well.
I am ahead of schedule and I’ll soon be sharing the music. I must admit, I seem to be having far too much fun for a challenge, reimagining the sound that Martin Hannett and others crafted way back when. So much fun in fact, that I’m off to play some more…
and if you are doing FAWM and want to play along or follow, I am here.
