Great Caesar’s Ghost! It’s been almost a week since my last post! My girlfriend is visiting me this week, and I must confess that I’m a bit distracted by her delightful presence. The sheer number of movies being watched astounds even me. Anyway, I’ve re-uploaded my songs so that everything is roughly the same volume. In order to do this, however, I had to tweak some levels since the compression of the brick-walling changes how everything sounds, so when I turn the levels back down, things aren’t at the volumes I intend them to be.
Of course, even though I set out only to change some levels, once I revisited the old mixes, I couldn’t resist tampering and making things sound “even better” in general (it’s sort of hard not to when you revisit a song after having learned a bunch of new tricks). The remixes are, for the most part, very subtle, and you may not even notice the difference (with the exception of one neat effect I added to “American”). But I do think they sound more polished now. Sorry to get all George Lucas on you, but in my defense, I haven’t technically “released” them yet, so there.
Speaking of official releases, though, check back later this week because for the first time, my songs will be downloadable! That’s right. And if that weren’t exciting enough, I’m going to release them under a Creative Commons license, which will give you permission to do stuff with them that you wouldn’t normally be allowed to do. I’ll explain all about that in my next post in a few days, and hopefully, one post after that, I will upload A NEW SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Right, so…you can listen to the remixed songs on my Music page here.
Oh, and here’s something fun:
Zach King is not a musician. In fact, I think this is his only “musical” video, but I still recommend checking out his YouTube channel because his ridiculous videos have an almost disturbing ability to make me laugh out loud with pure, innocent delight.
Now back to watching seven thousand movies. Bye!
I really think that the mixes sound a LOT better now. It’s hard for me to say exactly what changed, but I think the vocals in particular are clearer. Thanks for updating your songs!
