Writing new Polar Bear Cavalry songs. :] Planning on recording an acoustic EP as soon as I’m finished mixing the new Summer Soundtrack EP! So many projects, will keep you guys updated!
welp… the PA system that i used for the astroskeleton show tonight was really bad and couldn’t handle my famitracker/abelton render, and then my guitar was glitching out. i had to quit playing after 2 songs and pack up. it was super embarrassing, but oh well. i can’t give up.
it just really sucked because i spent months of programming, mixing, mastering, practicing, and arranging for this show and it all fell apart on me. i’ll get it next time ;_;
To be fair, I was rocking the fuck out during all the bits where the PA wasn’t being intermittent. Astroskeleton is best Corvallis chiptune. The club literally couldn’t handle him tonight.
If you’re going to produce a song, make sure it’s a song you -really- love, because you’re going to have to listen to it a million times while you work on it and it’s always going to be stuck in your head when you’re not working on it. Don’t produce music for a band if you are able to be passionately in love with their sound and completely invested in bringing out their very best.
Similarly, if you’re a musician, don’t work with a producer unless they are a genuine fan your music and they are very excited about producing your sound. Their passion will make all of the difference in the final cut.
Creating art can be a lot of work, and some work is more difficult than it is fun. But if you wish to have successful creations, you’ve got to be fully committed to your project. A work of art can never be perfect, but it is our commitment to the struggle for perfection that reveals our passion and true potential.
