This is a round-up of the past week.

Mailbox

  • Chameleon remixing continues with invaluable help from Chris Combs.
  • Just about done side 1. Not only is everything sounding “better” but there is an energy to it now that the original never quite captured.

Took a week off from Whale Helmet due to some technical issues and because Greg and I are celebrating our respective anniversaries this week.

This is actually for May 14-16. Again, days blurring together.

Whale Helmet

  • Recorded and edited episode #7
  • Includes a “live in the studio” performance of a new piece by Greg and me. I added guitar to his poem of “The Lighthouse” (or whatever we’re calling it).

Mailbox

  • Continued remix project for Chameleon In A Kaleidoscope album.
  • Sharing mixes with Chris C for feedback and second set of ears.
  • “San Antonio” is done. It is killer. It’s like the original only better.

Days kinda blurring together. Not sure if this entry is exclusively about today or not.

Mailbox

  • Remixed “The Piano That Jack Filled (pt. 18)” due to some really bad vocals at the end.
  • Listened to rest of Jack and it cant be improved upon. The mix and master from original CD (save for pt. 18) will remain for the reissue
  • Started piecing together audio and midi files for “San Antonio…” It will take a lot of work but I can already tell the result will be revelatory.

Whale Helmet

  • Called off Whale Helmet recording for tonight just cuz.
  • I did find a demo of this week’s song (“Endless pt. 2”) from 2000.
