Another round-up of the last few days.

Whale Helmet

  • Recorded episode 9 “Heliopause” but haven’t edited it yet.
  • This will be last recorded episode for this season. (Things Fall chat from March will be episode 10)
  • Greg and I started talking about what’s next for this podcast. Format may change, just brainstorming right now.

Mailbox

  • Chameleon remix project is complete. All mastered with two bonus tracks.
  • New version of cover is done which brings the artwork back to its original aspect ratio.
  • I want to listen to it a few more times before committing but I think it’s all set.
  • I don’t want to release it right now, though. It would be inappropriate due to world events. This can wait.

Adam Rabin solo

  • Finished new recording of “Heliopause”
  • Greg and I agree it is inferior to the original demo from January.
  • I added piano to original demo and called it done.
  • I may do something with the new recording – some kind of instrumental re-arrangement.

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.
