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.

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.
