I have in my possesion an amassed arsenal of musical material endowed unto me by the universe around us :D. With that material and concepts, I have grouped them chronologically into thus far 4 groupings of planned recordings. I have already produced multiple spit-stix versions of very low quality recordings presently featured on my Reverbnation, Facebook, and Soundcloud accounts. Once I begin work on actual definite versions of this music those Lo-fi lo-quality versions of these songs will go back into the vault of my harddrive. It sounds sad since I’ve come to love these very flawed versions of my songs over the past three/four years.
The actual albums will not be released chronologicaly from their conceptual inception but from my own choosing of preference. Theres a certain thrill I’m experiencing in recognizing that there’s a kind of aesthetic beauty in that there are underlying concepts and themes being conveyed in these planned recordings. I don’t even know what the finised versions of these songs will sound like but I have an idea. If I had children I would liken this experience towards one of being excited to meet this new beautiful being being born into the world. Did that make sense? In any case I can’t wait to meet these songs face to face.
This is gonna be fun, but I need to move on because my “H” key keeps jamming up on me. There are going to be 4 albums I plan to release once created about 4 months apart from one another starting in January with Subterranean Creatures.
1- Subterranean Creatures- Planned for release in January 2013, Subterranean Creatures will be an eclectic experimental instrumental album of odd quirky sounds and candid acoustic melodies and experimental sonorial noise personalities, First half of original concept and recordings produced Summer 2011, second half of recordings to be completed October 2012. Cover art will be the black and yelow/green streak photograph from Reverbnation/Facebook.
2- Sun Ditch The Elbow Grease- Expected in May 2013, Sun Ditch will be comprised of songs written off and on between 2009- 2011, these are my first songs I’ve ever written and are of the Singer-Songwriter vein. Work on recordings of more advanced spit-stix versions of these songs is to be expected to be completed by the end of November 2012. Of these songs which number to about 17, 12 of them have been selected for inclusion onto this album. Cover art TBD
3- Apotheosynthesis- Continuation of songs I’ve written between Summer 2011- July 2012, chosen songs number to about 14. Songs here are more full bodied with more structure and variation than straight tender folk of Sun Ditch. Recordings to be expected complete by the first half of December 2012. Cover art likewise TBD.
4- The Anti-Delilah EP- 5 Folk-Rock songs written between August- October 2012. Recordings to be completed if not also by the first half of December 2012. Cover art will be “The Anti-Delilah” photograph I produced in October 2012.
Recording 4 albums in the time frame of ~2-3 months might be overdoing it or even seem like I’m setting myself up for failure, but I like to start projects big so I have a lot of room to work with or I might become bored with it. Besides, I’ve set plenty of time between planned release dates and the present to work, so just because I’m aiming for 2-3 months actually gives me a good 5-7 months (I’m estimating). The dates for completion/release I mentioned above are not even concrete, I’m not gonna push myself to finish something like this for the sake of a deadline. Those dates are for sure my planned dates of completion and reflect what I would want to be but life has its own plans, so we’ll see were I am in a month from now. If the majority of Subterranean is finished by then I’ll call it a success and move on to the next batch. If not….well I’m flexible.
All I know is I’m going to have fun documenting this in the downtime. But for now I have GOVT chapters to read.
Later! — Evan
