What! O.K. everythings fine now......

I had a scare the other day whenI read that the only producer of recording tape went belly up. However that has resolved. One of my co-workers also surprised me with 5 reels of new tape he found while cleaning his studio. I have resolved to learn to work on my computer, I love tape but I shouldn't limit myself. My sometime jamming buddy Scott brought me a disc of some improv that I am going to do some overdubs on. It is Friday so maybe I can get some time in the lab tonight............been listening to a lot of Todd Rundgren.

click you're dead

Once again I was lured into recording onto the computer, and once again I wasted hours because of a dysfunctional sound card. Back to the reel to reel.

After noodling most of the day I come up with nothing. I am trying to hard. Just a bunch of meaningless notes.

Finally in the last 20 minutes of my studio time I start getting a sound, I have to be exausted to the point of not thinking to play with any feeling. Trying to "plan" is the kiss of creative death. At least for me.

I am ready to tape!

I cleaned the lab. There are no clothes on the piano now.
