I'm eager to do some pre-50/90 music-muscle stretching and flexing. So rather than slack off for the next two weeks before 50/90 begins, I'm setting myself a challenge: do a cohesive EP (meaning a unified theme, topic, concept, story, or even just feel) of no less than 9 and no more than 12 minutes total length, to be released on Bandcamp no later than Wednesday, 6/30. Any number of songs within that time parameter. Every track must also be meaningfully musically distinct from what I've previously recorded (although they can be consistent with each other), to force myself to try one or more truly new-to-me things, before I'm tempted to fall back on old patterns and techniques in the rush of 50/90.
I do not know what I'm going to do yet -- I just came up with the idea this afternoon -- but I finished a music project a few days ago and don't want to lose my current good habit that I finally developed of working on music at least 5x/week, so here I am.
I suspect most people are taking it easy musically in this pre-launch period, which makes perfect sense, but if anyone is interested in posting their own new 10-12 minute EP to Bandcamp by June 30 (with a link here in this thread), I will commit to listening to it,* so you'll have at least one guaranteed listener!
(* Barring highly offensive lyrical content as solely assessed by me, but that seems very unlikely given the terrific 50/90 crowd!)
