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”.
