  • Past couple days finished up a simple remaster (with a few remixed tracks) of Irrelevant, Look What You Made Me Do, and Attempt No Landing.
  • This completes updating of Mailbox studio album catalog.

Elephants of Scotland

  • Still ironing our some passages and riffs for “Winter Song.”
  • I think I have it where it needs to be now.
  • I still don’t know how or if we’ll be able to record as a group. Might have to go solo.

  • Practiced for “No Idea!” improv show on 12/3. Getting some chord progressions into my brain.

HH Musical

  • Reacquainting myself with the script. Reassessing where songs could/should go.

Mailbox

  • Finished up the remix of the bastardized What’s In The Box? album – now featuring the best of all three albums I recorded around 1999-2000.
  • I’m done writing the new “Winter Song” which, given the state of the world, is looking more like a solo song. Hope to start recording it this week.

  • Several months ago I tinkered with mixes of songs from 1999-2000.
  • I spent yesterday and today putting a final coat of polish on them.
  • Not sure exactly how I will release them. It’s kind of a best of 3 albums.

Elephants of Scotland

  • Worked on “Winter Song” just a bit. Settles on the tempo. Printed up a lyric sheet.
  • Planning to lay down rough guitar and vocals tomorrow so I have building blocks I can use for cutting and pasting an arrangement together.

  • 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.)
