I’ve learned a few things while doing the Weekly Thing, but I’ve really come to appreciate how challenging deadlines (even self-imposed ones) can be. There is always a little something that will go wrong at the last minute that threatens to delay the project. I finally realized that the only real delay was the fact that I’m too picky (it’s a difficult realization, you know!)
I actually started this piece about three weeks ago. It started as a simple Rhodes keyboard solo and eventually evolved into…well, I’m not sure what, exactly. I later added the percussion, layer by layer, threw in a Wurlitzer keyboard patch and hit record. Yes, it’s really that simple, so don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
I call this song “Across Town,” and it runs 2:49. Dig it.[powerpress]
