Holiday Hijinx

It was a week or so before Christmas and I was driving home. Usually when I drive home, I get these ridiculous thoughts that make me laugh. Sometimes it’s hard to concentrate on my driving because of it (digression). Anyways…

I was driving and I started humming Jingle Bells monotonously. I was inspired to make an obnoxious medley of holiday songs. It had grunting and high pitched tones, very annoying and obnoxious. My family found it extremely amusing!

I did make the song, however, I didn’t put it on my Reverbnation account because I think it counts as a cover since I’m covering holiday music. I’m not sure how the rules work for that so I did not upload it.

If you would like to hear it, I think it’s ok if I email it to you! It’s quite funny.

Does any one know the law regarding covering holiday songs? (I covered/parodied Jingle Bells, Silver Bells and Little Drummer Boy)

New Song

Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while, I don’t know how that happened! Usually WordPress sends me an email if I don’t get a chance to blog each week, I guess I’ll have to check my spam folder.

Anyways, I’ve recorded a new song: http://www.reverbnation.com/anorthhare/song/21098493-egroeg

Check it out!

The recording process was quite interesting. I first recorded 8 tracks, doubled those tracks to left and right sides of the stereo (now 16 tracks). Finally, I took those 8 original tracks and reversed them. The main song has 3 tracks for each recorded track (24 tracks).

The format is like this:

  • Left aligned track
  • Center track (reversed) heard on both speakers
  • Right aligned track

It made for a more “lush” sounding song. More full sounding I suppose you could say.
