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.


  • 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 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).


  • 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.

May 12, 2020

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


  • 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.
