Yes, I know. It has taken me a while to update the big ol’ tumblr. Here I am now, trying to make up for it!
First things first. Remember I talked about ‘Limbomania' ? Well tonight was the briefing. We were given the pre-sale tickets as well as all the info we needed to eventually give you guys & girls a rock-show. Also, we had to give the stageplan (who plays what and where on stage.) I'll send you that plan very soon, it'll become clear why at that point in time.
Furthermore, a while back I blogged on myspace and facebook about my (debut) EP: ” A World Not Knowing “. I wrote the time has come for me to enter the digital realms of music-distribution. Well I had everything managed but then stopped to think (for quite some time…) I decided to do the following. All the copies I sold are now officially COLLECTOR’S ITEMS. Seeing it was the first big studio-experience for both me and Willem ‘Enblanc’ Staels (who co-produced, mixed and mastered the EP) a lot of mistakes were made. Now you need to know I’m kind of a perfectionist and some little mistakes that were made really got on my system. We decided to record everything as good as possible and then afterwards punch-in, dub and what not to get it totally straightened out. Unfortunately the 3 recording days were over and the smallest mistakes we had left in the recordings, stayed in there. What I’m gonna do now is record every single song again (a lot of songs were drastically changed by playing them live over and over) PLUS some B-Sides and the result of that will be digitally released onto the world. Expect to hear more on this a next time.
Last but not least. It’s my goal to squeeze in a little surprise everytime I update. This time I added some audio. I was digging in my archives and stumbled upon a small recording I did with my good friend Anne Sleven (miss never-ceases-to-give-me-goosebumps) & the fabulous Nuna (Anne’s dog & if you listen closely Nuna does a bit of percussion with her paws on the floor). The song isn’t ours though. It’s a song by The Damnwells (whom I greatly admire. By the way click their name to go to the website, their newest album is free to download, amazing stuff.) I really like singing together with Anne and am always searching for ways to put her lovely voice underneath some of my tunes. Who knows… Well I do actually… But I’m always up for some heavy secret-keeping !
That’s it for tonight. Hope you can enjoy the song. Catch you later, B.
