...and I commenced the upload to Bandcamp for release tomorrow of the 10 songs and 10 instrumentals re the new album, which, due to its source material, will be called "Disquietmusik"...

The proposed blurb...

"I've been working on what, until now, was to be the 10th song album by Cloudland Blue Quartet ("Sparklemusik", which will now be the 11th, due 2021) for over 8 years now, the last 2 or so with producer Edward Spark.  

When I asked him, on 28 October, if he could come up with some acoustic drum tracks for me to "muck about with" while in lockdown, upon the arrival of the first, I paired it up with an edit of one of the pieces from the third volume of "Disquietmusik" from 2019 (Volume 4 is due to be recorded shortly).

It sounded good and my initial thoughts were to create a "Disquietmusik" remix album but, a couple of days later, I tried a quick vocal over the top and that seemed to work too.

Before I knew it, within the space of a week of superfast work and a kind of "that'll do" attitude re writing, recording and production - as opposed to the micro-management of "Sparklemusik" - a new 10 song album was ready. 

And here it is (with a bonus instrumental version for downloaders i.e. the originally proposed "Disquietmusik Remixes" album)"...

Each song will have the lyrics with it and individual credits - mostly
David Reilly : Vocals, Guitar
Edward Spark : Drums

Done in a week!

On the three final songs to be recorded, written and recorded (after 11pm) last night, you can tell I was singing quietly - but not to Anne's ears...

More tweaking with Craig re the look of the new website...

In all it took seven hours to upload the 80 minutes of music re the 10 songs and 10 bonus instrumentals...

Tea time...

Some relaxation late on...


Highlight of the Day : The final track uploading to Bandcamp...
