It feels like Spring is… well, springing. I’m back after a host/ISP attributable hiatus (I did not start a band called “Error Establishing a Database Connection”).
With the onward march of Time, some personal shifts and the alignment of constellations, it feels like the cusp of a new surge of creativity. I am finishing overdubs on my own solo project, and true to form, I am getting distractedly inspired to start collecting ideas for the next one. Whereas the former is an overview of the last 35 years of my musical pursuits, the next one will be more representative of what I have been doing more recently. The two albums will almost be like a math problem, the sum of the parts of album 1 will equal what album 2 turns out to be. In other words, I am overthinking everything.
Also in the general chaos of creativity is a forthcoming updated/remastered version of the collection of my theatre/film scores from over the years, and the hopeful possibilty of collaborations with some (if not most, if not ALL) of my compadres from Ghost Ghost and Regional Science Fair. Of course, Dennis and I continue to conspire to do something as well.
Also, gears are starting to turn in the Arty LaVigne Band machinery. The new songs are getting fine-tuned and we are prepping for a very special show on May 11th (that will get it’s own post shortly). Oh, and we had a Radio Underground reunion jam recently that maybe sparked something…
