Already a new tune in the mail.Stefan throwing material at me.
And what now! A total different vibe on this one.And absolutely no were to plant a massive floor tom act.
Hm! Lots of words... I'm probably out of business here!
OK I see,this is a famous poem that's been embedded with music by Mr Stefan.-Real beautiful! I feel the fluid building up in the eyes, time to weep some over my canceled drum session.
And by the way when tears seems to be the theme for this blog post.The first things that's pop's up into the mind.Are the clouds that's cries over the land and I wonder if this is the type of summer that's going to be the backdrop for Sweden this year?
I tested to put some drums on the new track.It's funny because all the restrictions I had before are gone.
Yes there were a long period in the Brother ape history when playing on the toms where forbidden!Ok maybe som fills could slip through the embargo.
After they let go of these restrictions they now got a floor tom junkie in the band.
We have to focus!Yesterday I received a new tune in the inbox from Stefan.
-Cool track man where does it fit in on the album? -It's a theme for the next album,I'm in the flow now so I just have to do them.-Ok but we also have to finish the unreleased "WORLDS WAITING"And it could be a good idea to implement the changes we did for some songs live.
Stefan has no comments,he's in his writing cabin in the wood.Doing he's magic composing ritual and won't come out until tomorrow when it's time for the old pagan midsummer feast.
Ok the Himalayan gig went ok and we are back in the cave studio.Putting up our gears and ready to pick up where we left of.
We did a fantastic jam yesterday where lots of themes from Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath and Zeppelin suddenly took form over a type of reggae back beat/ambient jazz swing beat.
It was a real strange brew to handle but I really liked the thing .Ok nothing was recorded so there are no proof that this little journey really took place but the good thing about it is that we don't have to ask for the rights when we hijacked those themes.
I think we got inspired by the visit to Himalaya to create this type of improvisation cocktail.The
people who work there have that kind of aura.Real cool and nice humans.
Sound check klar!
Nu är det bara och fylla på med föda och slappa ett par timmar innan spelningen.
Nu kör vi ett sista rep och slipar till lite trubbiga hörn så vi blir riktigt strömlinjeformade inför överfarten till Visby.Bensin har vi nog så vi slipper få soppatorsk,inge fel på varken soppa eller torsk så länge man håller sig borta från Malmskillnadsgatan.
Men nu ska vi till Visby och väsnas inne i ringmuren på Himalayas höjder.Vi siktar på att nå Nirvana hur omöjligt det än må vara men man måste sikta högt för att kunna skjuta sig själv i foten.Så vi börjar där och jobbar oss vidare mot ett klimax eller om det var klimatförändringarna vi tänker spä på, vad vet jag en lagom korkad primat.
Jag överlåter alla tonala laboreringar åt musikerna,själv ska jag bara hålla takten och ta en och annan bärs.
