Hey You, Let's make some music Together!
So here's the short version: Let's make some music together in a short time frame (because we're all busy people) to get better at making music, pad our portfolios, and maybe more cool stuff down the line. I'll do all the hard stuff, like engineering/mixing/playing instruments you don't, and it costs you nothing.
Sound good? You can either keep reading, or drop me a line and let's set up a time to get together.
WOT'S ALL THIS THEN?
Here’s the general idea: if you’re in, we’ll write and record a song from scratch together in just a few sessions, and have a brand new song recorded and mixed in around 4 weeks.
You’d come over to my place for 3-4 sessions of 3-5 hours: the first session we’d focus on writing, the second session wrap up writing and maybe do some quick scratch recordings and arranging work, and the last session we’d record whatever needs recording!
There’s no requirements about what type of music it has to be! All I want is for it to sound “honest” in some abstract sense, and be at least a little bit groovy. Both of those are usually side effects that happen naturally when I co-write with people.
I would do all the heavy lifting here! Besides doing the mixing/mastering/engineering, I can play or program guitar, bass, keyboards, and/or drums as needed. In most cases I’ll be working on arranging and refining the tune between our meetings. All you need to do is show up and be ready to work in the time we do spend together.
We’re all busy people, so it may not happen exactly as I described above, but part of the idea here is that we go fast, not only to get something DONE without the project dragging on and on, but also as an exercise to get better and more efficient at writing/performing/recording.
