In the last moments of 2020's challenge a concept for 2021's emerged on one of my early morning walks. The motif once again derived from a love and fascination with language, and manipulated sound. I hope to produce enough material to constitute an album's worth of usable material, and perhaps to complete the challenge. As I view the challenge as an opportunity to reboot my production activity, I have yet to slavishly commit to 50. This said, on the strength of the concept I've chosen, I believe there may be a chance I'll "break the tape" this year.
Update: At this point it would seem a minor embarrassment when I consider my original Bio for this year. While I will cease from predicting quantity of future output, and will contemplate developing and using a standardized bio moving forward, I intend to continue using the challenge to renew my enthusiasm for work. Indeed, though I haven't posted much this year to date, I have regained enthusiasm for producing pieces rooted in the abstracted sounds of everyday life. As an example, this morning I recorded the sound of a flock of parrots that seem to have adopted my neighborhood as (at least) and early morning hangout. While I haven't used this recording in production yet I am eager to begin. When I do I'll post a sketch here.
