March 13, 2011 Studio progress report (with music boxes!)

hey all,

Enter month 6 of the studio. I know it’s not that long of a time for one person to record 16 songs, but it’s about twice the time I spent making Journal of Retreat, so I can’t help but feel like I’m either getting slower or more discerning. Hopefully the latter.

Somehow, though, it seems as if Andrew and I are in the last week of recording. All we have left to do is construct a fictitious speech, add the inevitable layers of tambourine and various percussions, and get a group of friends together to do a singalong on “More Satellites Than Stars.”

I’m learning to sit with songs for longer than I usually do before I deem them complete. I forget how fun it can be to be patient, and let a song blossom for weeks, or even months in this case, only to find there are so many little decorations (colors, as Andrew calls them) left to expand upon. I’m beginning to understand why sometimes it takes years to make a record. Thankfully, you’ll have this one in your hands before the year is out.

Recently, we’ve been constructing houses for music boxes:

will write soon from the mixing board!

  1. Can’t wait to hear the finished record! You are making good time for one person.

    PS: I have a music box that needs a house?
