Happy New Year!

OK so I set myself a deadline for finishing Album#2 this year. Optimist that I am.

The second half is dominated by a suite called “The God Program”. The music is 75% written; lyrics at 100% which is a good place to be. Now I have to take the existing demos and turn them into a finished product.

I’ve been working on recording the drums on one segment, which is slow going because I am an uncoordinated monkey.

The other effort is to re-record the piano introduction. I composed this without regard for how difficult it was to perform (for me, anyway) and the demo suffers from a piecemeal and tweaked MIDI performance. I’m biting the bullet and learning how to play the piano part as an end-to-end performance. So far, it sounds like it will be worth it.
