Mark & Jens first jam…

Jens and I had our first jam. We played continuously for a few hours. Some very cool moments. The room is VERY small and difficult to set up in, but weirdly has a good sound. We didn’t bother recording anything in-case we focused on recording too much, but I stuck the H4 on for the last 15 minutes.

Heres one of them, completely un-edited, apart from running it though SoundBooth to try to remove a little room “klang”.

I think this will work, we just need to practice a lot, and need a name… I want something serious, but open and positive sounding. Not dark, not genre specific. Not techno, not geeky, but technical is OK.

suggestions?

My Birthday!

Had a lovely birthday yesterday, being a little hungover from the “office party” the nigh before, I got to stay in bed! I got lots of nice books on game music composing from Hilde, and a film District 9 [DVD] [2009]
Then she took the kids out, allowing me some time to make lots of loopy noise, with my new and increasingly interesting laptop solution…
Then Hilde cook a lovely meal of my favorite Norsk food. Thats Pinne Kjøtt med Kalorabi Stappe… MMMmmmmm!!
Then a game of Dominion and bed again.. a lovely day!
