"Make it more baroque.."

Ok, so on Saturday night Matt and I decided to do a little bit of recording instead of going to a Halloween party like a normal person. Music college is GREAT. The title of this entry is something he said. Well long story short, I wrote a new song on Friday night called "Angelina's Getting Married" and I played it for Matt on Saturday and he was so jazzed about it we started doing some recording.

Check out for the audio, you can download it too.

We had a really fun time. There's tons of mistakes on the track (and I really want to cut the vocal again) but there's a lot of cool ideas on it too. We used Garageband mostly and we rewired it with Reason to use the sampler. It really sounds like a Sgt. Pepper's style orchestra on it now. Check out the dual/backwards guitar solo :) I think I'm the guitar that starts on the right if you're listening with headphones.

Hopefully there will be more coming soon, I think next weekend we're going to try working one of Matt's songs. Eventually I think we'll do a good version of "Angelina's Getting Married" too. This week is super busy because it's midterms week so after the week of stress there will be more time for sweet music making. Wow, three 'weeks' in a sentence is weak. :D Take it easy everyone!

There is nothing wrong with recording music when you should be out partying. I repeat THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH RECORDING WHEN YOU SHOULD BE OUT PARTYING!! (At least, that's what I tell myself)
