The grind is real today, folks. After pushing back the creative process of writing my song for weeks, I’ve been left a bit more behind than is comfortable. At the point I’m writing this blog, I’ve basically finished the writing portion. I still can’t quite figure out how to put the message into words, but with the upcoming sentence I’ll try my best. I’m afraid of growing up and I’m not sure how to deal with the ever-crawling prospect of time, so here’s some word-vomit. Yeah, that’s basically it.
So, having written my song and gotten a proper amount of feedback to revise it with, all that’s left needed to be done is recording, mixing, and mastering it. As seen in the past, that process usually takes a week if I’m doing that leisurely. However, with the winter break coming up after tomorrow, I won’t have the normal equipment to work with. I’m planning on signing out the necessary equipment with Mr. Hansen (I’ll have to ask him which ones exactly I’d be taking home with me, first) and getting my dad to drive me home.
Over the break, I’ll be recording all the sections. That means ukulele, voice, and any other sounds as needed. Hopefully my teachers won’t be too busy with their families and rock star parties to answer a few of my emails. Once I’m finished recording which should take me around two days, I’ll move on to adding effects and leveling the tracks. I’ll also be doing cover artwork for all of the songs I’ve released as a cool-down task. Other than that, I’ll be having a very merry Christmas, and I hope you do too.
