Preparing for '08.


The music in this video is something I came up with earlier today, and I wanted to record it before I forgot it. It's kind of growing on me, and I'm thinking about developing it further so I can put it on my upcoming album.

Speaking of the album, I've been working on new music to put on the project. As soon as pre-production ends in January, the real recording will begin. I hope to have everything mixed and mastered by April, which means I better be smart about what I do with my time!

I'm really excited about recording this album, because it'll be my first real one! I've done many pre-production demos in the past, but never anything official. After years of putting it off, it's finally time to make this album a reality. Of course, I'll be taking video of the whole process, so you'll be able to share in the experience, too!

The new site is coming along, also. As far as I can tell, I'm still on track for a January launch. :)

Come on, 2008. I'm ready for you.

paul. hey, you might know me - you might not. i'd like to video interview you a series of questions for my show "thegravity" about a few things before you get started on 2008 and be super awesome everywhere (i have good esp about people!)

are you up for it? - i do the video streaming chat and link up on op11 (http://me.dm/link/gravity) and i'm launching a new site within 10 days for the show.

i'll probably have 5-10 questions prepared and it will be lighthearted and relaxed. let me know if your up for it.

Thanks!

Rawk, Paul. I'm excited for 2008 too--though I don't have a trailer :)

During the piano solo I let out a "Fuck! He comPOSED this?!" Well done, Paul... can't wait for the album.

Vergel Evans said...

great video... hope you do a couple of production vids on how you composed the album. I'm always curious on the creative process behind making tunes.

Good luck on the album.... if you can't find a way to get it onto iTunes you might want to consider Tunecore and/or AmieStreet as options. It's all DIY but you can atleast get it out there.

that was AWESOME

Bonny Pierzina said...

Wow! I am so impressed. That just came out of nowhere, but I'm sure you've had it in you a long while. Very creative and interesting --and good!

I especially liked the close-up of the green tea, and the piano part towards the end. What a fulfilling song.

Dude, amazing.

I am in awe of your talent, and in anticipation of your album. If I could see a video like this every week, life would be good. Not to set any expectations or anything though. Hehe.
