    2011 RPM Challenge

    Well, I've decided to take up the RPM Challenge again this year. For those who don't know, the idea is to record an entire album within the month of February. Thousands of people give it a shot every year. Last year, I produced an album out of it called The February Project, which I was rather pleased with.

    This year's album is going to be a radical departure for me. Ethnic percussion, ambience, acoustic guitars (well, the Roland VG-99 version of acoustic guitars, actually), and lots of other non-guitar stuff going on.

    Just as with last year, I'm interrupting a different project to do this. Later this year, I'm hoping to finish an album of intricate and funky fusion. We'll see about that.

    Here's more info, if you're interested. The RPM Challenge

    I cannot wait to hear what comes out of this. I really enjoyed how moments of brilliance bubbled up out of the more free form material on The Structure Creates Itself, so I expect I shall dig this as well.
    Division: American Metal without the suck.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    Thanks! This is going to be a lot more blissed-out than The Structure Creates Itself. I've stepped back from listening to as much avant-garde jazz as I did when I recorded that.
