Since we were going the route of changing up the song Rob and Tom just tried to enhance the original starting from scratch Recorded some percussion with a brush swishing back and forth on a floor tom. Then wrote a drumline based off of that. Set it up in Renoise at 91dpi tempo. Plucked the guitar part a bit more rhythmically.

Tom had rearranged some of the structure of the song and shortened the lyrics to the third verse, for the time being just using the last part of the first verse. Need to write a new vocal line for this concept. Cliff recorded the bass line replacing what was there on the verses. Then Rob, Tom and Cliff also wrote a new part for the chorus based on that. Song was exported 121103 which is why the file is titled that way.

Mark had an idea he wanted to work on basked on sort of a reggae rhythm that he had. Tried it at A-flat then F-flat then F then we went back to A-flat Tom couldn't hit the end high note so he went lower and mark sang the high harmony Then listening back to the recordings Tom Voted for the Eminor everyone else liked the A-flat then tried B which had more of a nick cave feel and Mark could play the harmony on guitar Tried B-flat and it wasnt the same C sounded more like the E minorish part D just...

Found a beat loop on freesound.org and Rob played bass to it running it through an Ibanez tube screamer. Then added a beat with it using the octopad set up. Tom suggested a pulse guitar rhythm and Rob played it running through the Rackarak amp emulator. Then Rob put down some ideas for a lead guitar line. Second track Around mid-November Tom Revisited this song. Took out the bass and the drum loop and minimized the arrangement. Then restructured the parts and laid them out. Tom recorded a new...

While trying to figure out how to use the program Renoise, Tom came up with an idea fpr a new song. Programmed the drums and synth in Renoise itself and used guitar and sax samples from freesound.org for the other parts. created an intro and a verse part with a wrapping end then tried to make a chorus part with the sax as the main line but wasn't really happy with it.

Overdubbed the keyboards to the track since they weren't showing up strong in the original recording Marks chords: First part - C minor, B flat maj, Second part - G minor, F maj Instead of the guitar idea that we laid out before that was off-key but kept mainly for rhythm, Mark based on that just riffed an idea for part of a loop using the Traymore amp and we liked the 3rd one so we used that. We added a ton of echo to the original guitar on the "catch more" part. Then Mark doubled...

adding to the lead keyboard line with a guitar. Ran it through the old chorus/hall echo box into the effects rack. Started out using the chorus effect but after adding a slapback effect turned the switch to hall echo which sounds more like a reggae dub echo. Then doubled the guitar rhythm on the first part by mic-ing the strings of the guitar strings and matching the level of that to the level of the amp, only using a slight overdive on it.

Song Idea from a guitar line Rob was playing while setting up to add guitar to the song tentatively called puano started the tempo at 100bpm which was too fast, lowered to 90bpm too slow, 95 bpm seemed to work. After messing around with this line came up with a second part. But it was in a different key and we altered it to be in the same key. Tried a couple of different ways to get them to transition from one part to the other.
