The night before the RPM09 storm

I’m getting ready for the explosion of music tomorrow. I’ve set the most unreasonable goal of completing 3 tunes. Haha, I mean, I can do it! At this point I’m feeling very optimistic but I’ve been told by many close friends that, that is my nature. So can I rely on it this time? You bet! (Although, this is my optimistic self replying too :( )
 

My writing program of choice is going to be Renoise. I’m planning right now of only using the plug-ins that came with the program and even final mixing and mastering. Sounds dangerous? Yeah, I know .. but .. I think I can get it sounding neat.
 

I’m very VERY excited. It’s like Christmas night but instead of Santa falling down the chimney I get to see songs and melodies spill out from that tiny black hole they call my head. As you can see, I’m also pretending that I’m not going to get writers block. Oh the wonders of dreaming about the future. So get ready to see my rosy checks of optimism punched by the emotional drain of normal every-day events. Oooh, perhaps Emo will ensue…
 

It’s all new.

I just thought I would state the obvious and say “Look it’s a new hunz web page layout“.  Been working hard to just make it easier to update and to get stuff out there. Here is a list of things you can do :
 

  • There are rss feeds so if you have a reader put that in there.
  • If you are a local and don’t want to miss a show then we have a show rss feed too.
  • There is also hunz on twitter, hunzmusic.

 
I thought I would also post the small video clip I animated for ‘draw the line’ again. I have lost a few of my old posts so I hope this makes up for it ^_^.
 


 

Rpm09 is just around the corner and it is my goal to have everyone going through what I’m going through.  A big thanks to everyone for helping me put this together! Thanks.
 

The Rpm Challenge

While I was at work one day my wife posted this link to me :

This is The Challenge – Record an album in 28 days, just because you can.

That’s 10 songs or 35 minutes of original material recorded during the month of February. Go ahead… put it to tape.

Don’t wait for inspiration – taking action puts you in a position to get inspired. You’ll stumble across ideas you would have never come up with otherwise, and maybe only because you were trying to meet a day’s quota of (song)writing. Show up and get something done, and invest in yourself and each other.

Anyone can come up with an excuse to say “no,” so don’t!

I decided that I would do this challenge.  I’m not going to use any material that I’ve made for the next album.  I’m going to do something completely new in the month of Feb and only use Renoise.  I thought I would blog and podcast what I do, and if I make it, we’ll all have some free hunz music released.
 
Please stay tuned and watch me either “win” or “fail”

Vote for Hunz ^_^


 

Hey there, This is a very big favor to ask but I’m hoping that you can vote for me so that I can play at V festival this year. You do need to sign up and the link is here http://www.garage2v.com.au/bands/hunz.
 

I need all the help I can get, and ALL your votes count. We’ll take care of playing the very best we can in front of a panel of people when the time comes. I’ll keep you posted on how things pan out and encourage you every so often to vote again :D . Also you will hear a new tune “beg” from the album “when victims fight” and I hope you enjoy.
 

Thank you.
