We are students of songwriting and have been in a creative dry spell for the past 4+ years. In an attempt to get our creative juices moving again we decided to write and record some music again. With the help of the modern technology of Garageband, Pro Tools, Reason, and a variety of plugin’s we can make this possible.
The plan is that we will trade off picking a band. We each will write and record 1 song in the style of the band that was selected. Next, we will listen, enjoy, and comment on each others songs. I had the 1st choice and I picked “Broken Social Scene”. We still have till Jan 15th to complete these songs, when we do we will each post and write about them.
These are more of guidelines than rules. We don’t have any official deadline for the song to be complete. We also might take a stab at recording each others songs. We also might take a stab at covering a song directly. The point is to create music and share in the entire experience.
As for now, all the recording with be completely separate. Lars will be recording his song at his house or office, however he wants to. Tim will be doing the same at this house. We will each post separate songs for each experiment. These songs will be posted near the 15th of each month.
In the meantime we will be posting interviews from musicians and songwriters, as well as posting other random related posts that we think you might find interesting.
