HH Musical

  • Had another productive video chat with Greg to iron out some issues with the final two scenes. Once again, the simplest answers are the best answers.
  • The next-to-last scene should be done this week. This is all, of course, just the first draft.

Studio

  • My computer is dying. All kinds of weird Windows error every time I try to start it up.
  • New computer is on its way here. This will push a few recording projects back a week or two. Two, really. No bigz.

DonnCherie McKenzie

  • The recording project with DonnCherie stalled out a month or two ago due to life obligations and each of us being stumped about what to do next.
  • DonnCherie set up a video conference with us and Myra Flynn-Wills. Myra helped us focus our thoughts and approach. Great to have an outside opinion and somebody who can translate Adam-to-DonnCherie and back.
  • Basic track session scheduled for two weeks from now.

Mailbox

  • Get Lost remix project is 9/10 done (I think)
  • Couldn’t find one of the synth patches that I really liked so I’m having to substitute it with a near (but not quite) match. If I end up happy with it then I just have one more song to mix.
  • In the process of looking for that synth setting, I finally came across the high-resolution versions of the “What’s In The Box?” images that Kyle made 20 years ago (!). I’d figured they were lost ages ago.
    • side note: I remixed most of What’s In The Box? and My Little Friend not too long ago with the intention of re-releasing them. Never did follow through on that.

DonnCherie

  • More practicing. Just about ready to lay down rough guitar tracks.

Sci-Fi Movie

  • Reading first part of first draft of movie project I’ve been asked to score. Fun!!! Can’t wait for this one to … take off. (Can’t share any details yet.)

DonnCherie

  • DonnCherie came by for a socially-distanced jam session. Pre-production / rewrites for her album.
  • Recording won’t begin until … you know. But there’s no saying we can’t start prepping and I can’t make some basic tracks.
  • Note to self. Talk with wife about camera angles vis-à-vis the back of my head.
