Step #2: From pen to printer.
Today is the day: my album is finally here!
I hope you all enjoy it!
My album is coming! My album is coming! March 25th, y’all.
My new single, Smoke Signals, is out today, and it’s FREE! Featuring amazing remixes by Troels Abrahamsen, Joss Ryan, synnack, and André Obin! Go get it now!
After a spontaneous hard drive meltdown, an expensive data recovery operation, and a month of anxious waiting, my computer is up and running again and the album recording is back on track!
The recordings are nowhere near finished, but it’s a great feeling to see them all lined up in order for the first time this morning. This is actually happening!
Want to appear on SoundClouder Matthew Connor’s upcoming album? There’s no easier (or funnier) way than this:
Matthew recorded the vocals for a bar room chorus that he’ll turn into a singalong effect. He’s asking you to join the fun and record your version of the melody.
You can preview the melody by clicking play and if you have what it takes, go to his DropBox, hit the Record button and record your version straight into his SoundCloud. More details here. If you record your version, also post the link to as a comment or Tumblr reply?
Want to make a guest appearance on my album? Just record yourself singing along to this! The sheet music is in my last post. More details on the SoundCloud page: http://soundcloud.com/matthewconnor/want-to-be-on-my-album
It’s hard to get work done on the weekends.
(…and yes, four part choral writing is involved on this album)
Album recording officially underway. This lovely old piano, now living in Virginia, will be making an appearance.
Here’s an old demo of “Save a Seat for Me,” a song I’m currently rerecording for the upcoming album, posted recently on my SoundCloud.
And speaking of SoundCloud, on Monday I was named SoundClouder of the Day. What an honor!
“Somewhere Down There,” new track available for download on Bandcamp.
In college I was once assigned to write a song for a famous pop star. I chose Patsy Cline, and this is what I came up with.
Anonymous asked: Music has emotional attachments, most likely not innate but based on conditioned associative relationships with emotional states, brought upon be social traditions, coincidences, and associative semantic content in context of relative even or circumstance. Your music like all music is expressing itself physically in the biological systems of others through sound waves which you have constructed. Do you feel a social responsibility for the effect your music has on it's audience?
