I have decided that I am going to do the RPM Challenge. That is, I am going to write and record 10 songs in the month of February. This is somewhat insane as February has 28 days in it and I will be traveling around California with no musical equipment to speak of for 10 of those days. This means that I have 18 days to write and record 10 songs.
I plan to use this as an opportunity to essentially write and demo songs for The Motion Sick. These recordings won’t be official band recordings, but rather will be part of my oft-neglected solo project, The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library. My hope is that many of these songs will then later become songs with The Motion Sick. This will, however, also give me an opportunity to record some material and write some songs that are stylistically unfit for the band. I’ll be recording these myself using very meager gear and my very, very meager recording skills and knowledge. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll post updates here as time goes on.
