Recording is so organic for a process that is largely digital. Jax Resto and I have finished 8 out of the 23 songs we are recording for her eBook Project “Too Much To Remember,” We are offering them on a disc at our gigs until the final songs are done and ready. You can hear them on the BudaRest Tune Widget on the right side of the page. They are organic in that we have been nurturing them for over a year and watching them grow as we play them live, get new ideas, rearrange them, add new players and instruments. And like living organisms, they change each time we play them live and we hear different things each time we play the recordings. Extremely fulfilling process. We feel a bit like proud parents who are happy to let our off-spring live at home. Well, our separate homes, anyway. They are not likely to embarrass us by getting in trouble and they have great potential to contribute to our enterprise. With artists of all stripes, this is the usual hope; that our work will endure for others to enjoy and return great satisfaction and hopefully a return on investment. But artists are rarely dissuaded from continuing the creative process even if the return isn’t so great. We just need to keep going.
If you’ve read this far, you are likely interested in music and /or the creative process. We hope you’ll give us a listen and consider buying a download. We have lots more to come so we hope you’ll become addicted to BudaRest. We received a nice review from Middle Tennessee Music. Short and sweet: http://www.midtnmusic.com/buda-rest-the-driving-duo/
