I have had a couple of days to get things rolling for my RPM Challenge cd. After playing a slow evening last night, I was sitting outside on a patio with some friends, listening to what they were saying. Nothing that was said stuck out like I hoped it would. It wasn’t until one of them said they had to go,then her boyfriend said “I gotta go too, I’m on a bicycle” I liked the way he said it with his accent. I made some notations on a napkin to catch the inflection of his voice.
Today, I came up with the melody and an improv tune. I recorded it, and went to get it on my computer. That is where the trouble began. I could not get it from my recorder to the computer. After several failed attempts and my computer freezing, I took a break. Eventually, I figured a way to get it on there. It takes a little longer to load but hey, it at least it works. Anyway, I didn’t care for the acoustics of the room on the recording.
I went up to the coffee shop to write in my journal for the day and I was able to get another piece of dialog. A man was talking to two women and he says “I come here a lot to read” It was about the only thing that stuck out. Tomorrow I now have two pieces to work out and get recorded. I am looking forward to getting those done and maybe get a Haiku Jazz tune recorded. I am hoping before the weekend is done I will have at least one sample to share.
