I posted earlier about my goal to record an EP this year and make it available on Bandcamp, etc.: that is now a goal for 2019.

I worked on it…I really did. And I learned a few things:

  1. Playing ‘live’ on a Steinway grand at the cancer center and playing in my studio on a digital keyboard (albeit a good one) are two really different experiences. It’s almost as though I lose the meaning of the music when I’m recording.
  2. I’m not a sound engineer, but I know I’m not quite satisfied with the final sound quality I’m getting so far. I want to take some time to try a few different approaches.
  3. I want a more solid theme for the EP/album – not a ‘variety pack’.
  4. I’m letting perfection get in the way of good. I record countless takes and am not fully satisfied with any of them. I have to accept that my technique is only so good, that it’s okay for my recordings to reflect me, where I am, how I play.

Thank you for listening this year – I can’t begin to tell you how much that encourages me!  And grace and peace to you in 2019!
