The Recording Process

More than half way through recording the new demo. Sounds weird.
I have discovered something about my recording process - It never turns out the way I intended. The thing is; I have this picture and vague melody in my head whilst writing the songs. The form and figure is there but very faint. So. When I start to record the songs I start to wonder what the hell am I creating?! I keep asking myself what it is that's exiting my head in the shape of a song 'cause I don't recognize the tangible song from the one I pictured in my head when writing. Am I making any sense?
Well. The bass yesterday. I just did it impressionistically instead of following a melody already made up. Suddenly it was there, channel 4 on my porta studio.
This THING, this situation kind of makes it hard for me to be excited about my new songs because I never know how they will end up. I'm always criticizing and analyzing them. More now than ever before. I really became aware of this phenomenon whilst being in the process of "At Least Like Melissa" and that song turned out to be one of my favorite songs so I'm not really worried, just confused.
The tracks I'm recording:

  • Jupiter and I
  • Wolflike They Are
  • Wicked Autumn Kiss
  • I Bleed You Tonight
Thanx to David for adding analog drums on two of the songs. I love you always.

So anyway. I'm on schedule and I will probably have the new demo out within two weeks.
"At Least Like Melissa" will be on it.
I hope you'll be here when it's done.
