Before we begin...

Updated: Feb 23, 2021




Tomorrow (Feb. 1) is the big day - Day One of RPM2021 - and I want to thank you for coming along with me on this 28-day journey. Woohoo! Before we get started, here are a couple thoughts.


My commitment

I promise to spend time in the studio every day, with a commitment to finish at least 2 minutes of new music each day. I promise to share this music with you via SoundCloud (with links from this blog) at the end of each day, so you can listen and comment. I promise to keep this music as authentic and personal as I can, without resorting to clichés or imitation. I promise to focus on simplicity, and to avoid over-thinking. I promise to dive into new sounds and let them take the music wherever it wants to go.


What I ask of you

As we travel down this creative road, I ask you to please listen with open ears and an open mind, and to share your feelings, impressions, questions, and ideas with me in the comments on this blog. I ask you to be blunt and honest. Don't be afraid of hurting my feelings - that can't happen. You don't have to comment every day - only the times that you feel moved to do so. You don't even have to listen every day (as we all have busy lives and plenty of other things going on). I ask you to have fun with this, and to share this project with others who might also be interested. The more, the merrier!


Today's question for you (please add your comment below):


What would you like to hear on this new album?

Love to hear different sound samples...we did this with Imogen Heap’s “Sparks” album. Such as a beating heart, a slinky spring, a dishwater door opening, a just lit match and of course boiling water in a pasta pan!

I'm with deborah and Kyla... imagination and human voice. We've gone through a lot this past year. Personally, I'd love to hear your take on this year in an album where each piece is an 'episode' within a series, building to the finale...

been wanting to hear the human voice, humming, harmonically shipping. mixed in with a piano or cello, some single voice instrument. shifting tones, rising/falling, long breaths/notes...make sense? personally, i'm thinking about interviewing a lot of folks from different ages, races, economic statuses about their experiences during the pandemic/political upheaval/california fires...the idea of breath, the lack of it, deep inhalations...all that floats around as i think about it. just at the very beginning myself so this is a great time for this kind of conversation. xodeb
