Giselle - Moss

On my desperate search for multitracks to practise with, I found this link-- a remix of a project with 54 tracks (trust me, it's a BEAST). It's called Moss, by an artist called Giselle.

...And I loved it. Admittedly, I did think (as I usually do in cases like this) -- 'OH MY GOD WHERE IS THIS GOING OH MY GOD IT'S AMAZING WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN' and then it didn't quite live up to my expectations (as usual) but there's still something frisson-inducing there. And it made me feel small. Always a good sign.

That picture is from the Soviet film adaptation of the Little Mermaid. The vocal on this reminded me of it....

"Clarity first, magic later"

My motto for this month is 'clarity first, magic later.' It runs counter to my workflow, but it seems to be the logic of most sane people; for now, I'm going to go with it.

On the other hand, "magic later" is almost "metralgia" when rearranged, while "clarity first" is dangerously close to "scary flirt". What a strange realisation! Maybe it's not such a good idea after all...
