Recording Done

After more than a year and a half of recording, or rather learning how to record on my own while recording, the album is done. Right now I am editing and mixing and trying to get it to flow like how an album should.

I am a fan of songs rather than albums by bands and artists that I like but there is nothing like a full album that takes you on a ride from beginning to end. So far there is a sort of unpredictable feel to it, as a friend pointed out recently. Looks like at least 10 songs will make it onto the album. There were close to 18 songs recorded but as most people who record will tell you, not everything you come up with will end up on an album.

If you've been listening to the songs I have already uploaded, you'll know the album will not sound like the last one. I am in a different place now than I was 6 years ago, so naturally even the songs will be different. However, it is still very much me because I played every instrument and recorded, arranged and produced everything on my own. It feels liberating not having to rely on anyone but myself, flaws and all.
