WARNING: Listening to this music doesn't require parental approval. It's a bit of clean rebellion. It keeps your outlook up and your hope alive. It's got strong drums and screaming guitars. It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

I did a lot of music last night.  This morning, too.
Yesterday, at work, my boss was talking to me about this CD ROM we're putting together.  Our designer is creating the look of it in Flash, and mentioned that they're thinking of putting music on it.  So, I said, "I'll make the music for you!"
So, I did!  I created three 15-20 second loops.  Each one took me about 45 minutes or so.  Lots of fun. It's kind of challenging to make music that's interesting enough to not be lame, but dull enough that it doesn't detract from the actual content that people are reading.
Then Morey came over with his drum pad and we added tom fills and things to "What'll Save Ya" and "Out of the Chapel".  It's cool.  I create the basic drum track with my keyboard, a solid beat, then he comes in and adds the cymbals and the tom/snare fills.  That way, I can cut the other tracks with a basic beat behind it, and I still get a live feel for the overall track.  Great stuff.
Now, I just go in and clean it up a tich, and *Presto* drum track!
"Save Ya" is almost done, now.  Some horn parts, and a mix, and it'll be ready for the world!
I decided the other day that my "Big Audacious Goal" will be to have my CD ready by the end of the year.  Let's see if I can pull it off!  If I do a song a month for the rest of the year, I'll have ten songs ready by then.  I think I can do it!
