I See Sharply?

2012-07-08 04:10:20 by GasparXR

I See Sharply will be finished writing soon, but only as a framework -- I will not be recording it. Instead, I have bigger, more stellar plans in store for my solo project. I will be writing music that have the intention of being released as a concept album, but only the instrumental elements will have relation between songs. Any lyrics that are devised for the songs will be written in a more song-oriented format -- The subject matter will be based on the feels of the individual song, rather than some over-arching theme that engulfs the entire album.

I See Sharply will eventually be re-organized, with some parts taken out, altered, and replaced with new ones. My reasoning is that it suffers from prog-itis. This term means that the song is a train of musical ideas, that don't really make the piece cohesive. I want the song to feel like a song that is greater than the sum of its parts, rather than simply being, the sum of its parts.

I am beginning the write another piece which will definitely have vocals, and I will record it, but I will need to recruit a vocalist for the job. All I will reveal about it is that it will likely be a longer piece, upwards of 10 minutes (not for sure though) and is based off of a classic short story by Edgar Allan Poe.

The song is still underway, much closer to completion than 2 weeks ago. I would guess about 85-90% done. After it's done, I will be recording the bass, followed by guitar, and then sequencing the drums and keyboards.



The first piece written for Apostasy, titled "I See Sharply", is getting close to being completely written. I would guess about 75% but no-one knows how long it will end up being (currently 5 minutes and 5 seconds)
