Year Long Project

I got this idea from Grant not too long ago. And I thought I would start it this weekend since I'll be visiting Freda tomorrow. But Grant suggested I record an album out at Freda. I instantly knew I wanted to. But I didn't want it to be that simple, I wanted a different edge to the original idea. So I'm going to be taking this one slow. Real slow. I'm going to begin what I'm simply just calling "Freda" at this point this fall and then releasing it next fall. I want to capture Freda in every season. Broken leaf fractals of fall, the shivering slivers of winter, the summer sun, the flower-child energy of spring. I want to record each season as half of one side. A couple of songs for each season. I want this to be my best work yet. I'm going to take everything really slow and see how it goes. I'd like to hear about any ideas anyone has to offer. Mostly on what instruments I should use, some new angles/ideas, suggestions?

Field recordings!! Sonic floods from each season, drawing in the natural sounds and building whatever instrumentation you decide to use upon that initial noise/ambience floor... field recordings!!!!!!!!

Also, thanks so much for your comments. I am so so glad to hear a response about the new album and "the magick that is you". I can't wait until you can hear the whole thing!!!!! Hopefully I'll finish up recording tomorrow and release it this week!

And SOOO excited about your "Freda" project. It sounds AMAZING!!!!

It would be really interesting to see this realized as a four part series. Each season represented by an album.

I thought about that too, Grant. I haven't completely decided on what I'm going to do yet. So who knows.
