I have had the utmost need to write and record new things for at least two years, but I severely lacked proper equipment... And thus my ideas remained hopelessly underdeveloped and found their wispy shapes in little voice memos that I dutifully stored on usb drives—ever hopeful that one day my work might avail itself of usefulness. Things began to take more definite form when I recently found the qualitative potential of the Garageband app on my iphone. For many months the app had sat undisturbed, as an update had placed it there with no consultation. Armed then with my phone, and my bose headphones (which had a little speaking mic attached) I began to write, and better yet to caste my writings in the liquid structure of recordings.
I suppose it's what people might call a 'break up album'? It certainly comprises a great deal of change(s). My transfer to SMU, the endings and beginnings of personal relationships, and now my violin teacher. I took my humor, sorrows, and the tragedies of my existence (and apparently Vivian's) and put them into these songs. I might but only ask that you enjoy them, and share them. If you'd like to donate to the cause, I wouldn't be terribly upset about that either.
I suppose the title might necessitate some explanation.
Hah. As if.
Additionally, it would appear that you only get all the cool artwork and such if you download in .mp3 format... So there's that.
