An RPM-Challenge Challenge

It’s almost February, and that means that it is time for all musicians to consider the RPM Challenge. The goal is to take the month of February to record an album of 10 songs or 35 minutes of previously unreleased music. (See the full details of the challenge here.)

 

I took the challenge last year and somehow wrote and recorded Thoughts That Move in one month. (With the mixing help of mr mark dollin) If you missed it, I blogged the whole process, which you can read starting at the bottom of the page here and working back through feb.

 

I’ve been asked by many people (including my wife and even myself) whether I’d be doing it again this year. As tempting as it is, I’ve decided to keep my focus on the animations that I’ve been working on and keep that ball rolling. I am challenging myself to make some progress on my clip during February.

 

the challenge
But I’m putting out the challenge for all other musicians to sign-up at rpmchallenge.com, and then leave a comment here. I’d love to see how other people go with it and hear your progress. It might feel like it’s last minute, but I signed up on the 28th of January last year. Just commit to it and see how far you get. If nothing else, you might crank out a couple interesting new tunes or make you rethink how you write to get it done.

 

Starting sunday at midnight.. you can doo eet!

Lost Demo Track Found and Released.

<a href="http://hunz.bandcamp.com/track/borderline">Borderline by hunz</a>

 

This demo track was written at least five years ago, but I thought it was lost in a hard drive crash. Recently I was on a roadtrip with friends in the USA, and we were listening to their ipod on shuffle in their car. Somewhere along the journey, this track popped on, and I laughed and cried a little. Turns out I had emailed it, so it wasn’t gone forever. I love moments like that in life. Thank you, Nate.

 

Please note this track was only supplied as a 128kps file. It was written completely on buzz with a Shure sm58 mic (no compressor) and mixed in headphones. I may one day return and re-write this track but I feel like I need to move on. Also note that you don’t have to pay for the track to download it. Just put in “0″. If you wanted to throw a few bucks my way then you are more then welcome too ^_^

 

Hope you enjoy.

[verse]
So tightly wound we are
Like cotton balls taught
Just staying out so far
Watching Battles lost

 
Say that isn’t so
Cause feel that like but I’m stuck in this middle
Tell and be so sure
Cause I’m wedge in this screen and I’m trapped in the middle. Trapped

 

[chorus]
Give it up
say you will
just say you will
come undone
no more lies
say you do
just say do
come undone

 

[verse]
We’re buried in so deep
we hug our knees and breath
so close your eyes sleep
in holes trademarked by thief’s

 
Say that isn’t so
Cause feel that like but I’m stuck in this middle
Tell and be so sure
Cause I’m wedge in this screen and I’m trapped in the middle. Trapped.

 

[chorus]
Give it up
say you will
just say you will
come undone
no more lies
say you do
just say do
come undone

Hunz
It’s Around Us
[bpm 120]

 

[verse]
your loud hollar is a bore
you ate me in the womb
it’s you that’ll shut up and run!
cause I’m hidden like a gun
 

[chorus]
Hey mother
can we fear this noise
are we too far in
does it ever stop?
Hey father
can we fear this noise
are we too far in
does it ever stop?
 

[verse]
it’s not subtle like spring
it’s cold mother here
It feels loving like rain
slowing down our thoughts
 

[chorus]
Hey mother
can we fear this noise
are we too far in
does it ever stop?
Hey father
can we fear this noise
are we too far in
does it ever stop?
 

[outtro]
does it ever stop?
does it ever stop?
it’s only my mother who knew it
because she wore a clever disguise
