So… the Pantsofdeath musical endeavour has rules:
The first rule is that I have to finish projects (unfinished projects were the bane of my music producing past) because the only way to work through a creative block is to finish what you are doing, you cannot pass the next turd until you have finished the one you are on. This strategy is very effective incidentally.
The second rule is I have to post what I produce. This one is quite important, because you can never tell what your listeners will like. Some of the tracks I was initially lukewarm about have turned out to be my most popular.
This weekend I was babysitting alone for three nights in a row – that is a lot of time, so I finished a blocking project (babysitting music part one) and started a new project (part two). I quite like them both but they have a different vibe from my usual bus music – see what you think.
Incidentally this first track, which was blocking me for quite some time, no longer contains a single scrap of the original – all the original work got edited out or replaced in in the course of the process, so really this is a completely new track. Weird huh…
