sandrylene: Scott Pilgrim generator based pic of me (Default)
I've been very busy in the past year or so with music, and I think I've talked now and again about that, but I don't think I have ever, ever posted any of the results of it. And they do exist, so I'm not sure why this has just never occurred to me.

Anyhow. Correcting that...
Some info and videos from recent-ish concerts )

A lot of time is still going toward both those groups. In Sassafrass, we're working on recording a new album, which mostly is already written, but which some of us are learning music for, and others are just trying to get down good recordings of. We're going for a higher quality CD than has been made before by the group, and ye gods, it's an adventure.

In Stranger Ways, we're sort of at the step before that. We've been working on writing a concept album for most of the year now. Almost every song we intend to be on there is started, a few are finished and we've rehearsed a few times, but many more are only about halfway in, or are further along with lyrics than music, or vice versa. It's been an interesting voyage of discovery in terms of how we all write music, how we collaborate, what strengths we have, etc. For the most part, I'm really enjoying the writing, though it's always dispiriting that I can't always make the music go on demand. Anyhow, I have done so very little lyrics writing before, so this has been a real challenge, but also really an awesome growth type thing. Learnings; I can haz them.

So now you know what like 10 - 20 hours of my week has been going to for the past year and a bit.
