New EPs Impressionsism, Meditations on "Abacab"
Two weeks since the last post=two new EPs. Meditations on "Abacab" is part of my Meditations series, where I engage with a pop song on a micro level, exploring a small part of it at a time; the titles obviously refer to where in the song that moment I'm working with is. My old way of engaging with pop songs that I loved was to write my own pop song that ripped them off, so I guess this is kind of the same, but without all the overhead. Impressionsism was the result of an unexpectedly abbreviated recording period, so I had to suddenly do whatever I was going to do in less than 20 minutes; always a good way to get the blood moving.
