With the backyard under water, we opted to shift the Downtime session into a song development session. I chose not to stream it because sometimes you want privacy so you can be free to make mistakes.
However I did receive some requests so we might try live streaming some of the recording sessions.
Housekeeping - I miscounted downtime episodes (thanks Boss) so we are up to episode 7. I am expecting some new awesome guests and it will be great when the Studio is no longer submerged.
Provided we are not washed away in a deluge, I expect we will be back on for next week.
Recording and mixing on Sanctuary and Awakening is proceeding. The new batch of songs is coming along, guide tracks going back and forth and guests being scheduled.
The Boss (formerly, Theo lol) is marshalling this stuff through. As I type I am listening to the rain hose down and wondering when the back of the house will start to float away. Typical stormcellar weather again.
I'm not blogging much because it's all going sooo quietly and slowly. Rehearsal this week, 3 songs to finish lyrics for and so many waiting in the wings I am looking forward to playing with.
Not all my tech stuff has worked in the background. That happens. Learning.
Album production cycle methodical and slow and wonderful.
It's sooooo caaaaaalm.
Downtime will be on this week (weather permitting) and we are totally on schedule for NEWWWW SONGS!!!! YAAAAAY!!!
Things are starting to pick up and I imagine the blog output will resume correspondingly. then again I am not sure.
I am soooo relaxed. It is so chill right now :).
Big ups to the X man back from 'somewhere' and to The Odd Collective who are active. Last time I saw them was the last gig before Covidpocalypse. Uh oh.
Stock up on TP Folks.

Not to overfry my metaphors but it's Full Spud Ahead. Looks like Stormcellar Collective will be out in the Wild.
Gig 27th March, Hornsby. No doubt someone will post about it.
We're now in a regular schedule for post production on 'Sanctuary' and production on 'Awakening'.
Yeah I know, me and my Project Names. They could have equally been project Cocoa Butter and Project Hamster.
Someones's gotta do the filing. Maybe I just like cool names.
Expect projects DragonAwesomeness and TotalButtKicking next...ok...no not really.
I mixed up my numbering. Oops. Downtime Ep 7 this week.
Meanwhile I am working on fixing the holes in White Fire (pet song at the moment).
Tech updates here and for the streaming are in bound. Plenty to do, takes time to do it thoughtfully.
Downtime Ep 5 in about 14 hours from now with special guest comedian Sarmad Nadeem, live from Pakistan! (aint the web amazing)
It wil be on fb and twitch.
Safer on FB cos my twith thing is a little flakey maybe.
