After all the fun festivals and whatnot we’ve been up to this summer, a weekend at home with nothing planned is a wondrous thing.
This weekend was dedicated to music. The Jetman and I have been much inspired by the Dutty Moonshine and Madam Electrifie sets we caught at Beatherder, so Jetman had a go at an Electro Swing/ Deep bass track…. and it’s flipping awesome! I put my two pennies worth in on Sunday adding lyrics and vocals. It’s now a song about encouraging street artists to be more considered with their art and anarchy – I’m opposed to names squiggled on walls but passionate about thought and emotion provoking street art. Art like music is hard to wax lyrical about without sounding like a wanker but I think we got the tone right, time will tell.
As well as that I bashed out a quick and dirty duet with Billy Holiday:-). Found a fab remix of Summertime by Organica which is one of my all-time favorite songs, so I had to have a bit of a sing along – it evolved in to a video of the live recording.
Can’t say I’m comfortable with seeing myself on video but have a strange need to desensitize myself to the process. I’m quite sure there will be people who say ‘who does she think she is?’ or they wont like what I’m doing (Mum thanks for the constructive criticism) but inclinations towards certain aesthetics and musical taste are all about personal preference and there is someone out there who’ll get it…..hopefully.
This is a journey and I’m on the 1st steps, I totally get that there’s plenty of room for improvement but ya gotta start somewhere!
So here’s the Sunday Session recording – it sounds better with headphones and it’s a slow builder of a track. If you have any questions about the recording process message me?
