Crossing the Finish Line

Reading time: 1 minutes.

Well, here we are with just two days to go before the end of the 2011 RPM Challenge and I’m basically done. It’s been a really difficult month for me with the stuff going on in Wisconsin, and honestly this contest was a great way to escape. When I couldn’t sleep, I worked on music. When I was frustrated with a governor who’s so hell-bent on the bottom line that he’ll take away heath insurance from limited term employees, I’d work on music. This kept me from thinking about the fact that I may have to leave a job I love in order to take another one so I can pay the bills.

It was also nice to prove to myself that I had what it takes to actually write some tunes again, instead of just wasting time aimlessly.

The eight songs I ended up with are a varied mix of done. I had two more songs that didn’t make the cut because they had vocal parts that didn’t sound very good at all. That’s probably because I haven’t done any singing in a long time. But I did end up with about 39 minutes worth of some pretty good material.

It’s all electronic music, in a few different styles. It may not be for everyone, but then again, I don’t care because I write music that I like to listen to. If others like it too, then that’s just frosting on the cake.

So, without further ado, here are the 8 tracks that make up “26 Days”.

  1. Out Of The System
  2. Louder And Faster
  3. Put It In Drive
  4. Missing
  5. By My Two Hands
  6. New Day
  7. Sleepwalking
  8. Broken Promises
