Well, the recording has not gone so speedily as I had hoped due to several noisy repares going on in the apartment building where I live. However, I have not been idle. Last week was spent in doing research for the art which will represent the album, and I am soon about to enter the world of actually licensing an image from a gallery. It’s very exciting. I also have a designer who is willing to help me to take that image and turn it into an album cover.
I have often resented the need for imagery to go along with an album. All I ever want out of a good album is great music, but for most people in the world, the cover on the CD or on the download site is the first thing they’ll see. I can’t imagine that a cover would make that much of a difference, but then, I don’t live with a visual frame of reference. So, onward and upward. I hope the design will be finished long before I actually release the album.
As for recording, I hope to get back into it with a vengeance this week and to continue it through the month of March. Wish me luck and stay tuned for further updates!
