WORDS OF A REMOTE GOD
After an uninspired night of production, I needed to keep experimenting and find a better idea to build a new song from. Producing a new song from scratch, Day 2.
How to start a brand-new song from scratch, just days after finishing a polished track. Mentality of an artist.
When the sun rose, I didn’t know it – but I was almost finished mixing and mastering the song “Lost in the Wind.” Join me for the final two days of polishing the details like compression and EQ.
Vocal Comping is the art of assembling a finished vocal recording from multiple different takes. The goal is to make the finished product sound better than any of the individual performances could on their own. Follow along as I build a vocal comp for my original song, “Lost in the Wind.”
Today is about recording vocals for “Lost in the Wind” – sweating over dozens of vocal takes until I get what I want (and become a better singer in the process).
Today marks the sixth day of my songwriting marathon. It’s focused on energy levels, song structure, and drum programming in Battery 4 and Ableton Live.
Producing the song “Lost in the Wind,” Day 5. Finishing tough lyrics and improving basslines.
