The update for today is to the production notes page for Tour. I’ve also added the song notes for a few tracks and plan on adding more in the coming weeks. I’m hoping to do an update every day and slowly but surely get all the content I have up on the site. The next big project (later this weekend) is going to be doing some video editing for the track reviews I’m planning on posting. More info to come tomorrow!
I’ve posted the first of many updates to the production notes section of the site. Tonight, I added the recording history for Opener – which includes two demo tracks.
In choosing the best way to share the music, I researched a couple different options: SoundCloud and Mixcloud. I decided to go with SoundCloud because it had upfront pricing and gave me a free plan to build off. It also had a great plugin for WordPress that let me integrate it very easily into the existing pages on the site.
Now that I’ve picked a platform for sharing my music, I can start updating the recording history section on the production notes pages that are already online (Opener, Tour, Bright Eyed, Anyway, Pickmeup). I also plan on posting a track review video where I discuss the songwriting and recording process for each song on the album Make Music.
In addition, I’ve started posting a list of the gear that I used in the production of the album. When possible, I try to provide links to the company and specific product.
