Tann Starr - Book Club Blues - Legrand (Follow @ClaireLegrand on Twitter)
"Hell Kitty" and "Sabina K" are in progress for A Pang and J Wells. We're really getting off in Trip Hop Jazz mode today (silly happy grin). Looking forward to unleashing these puppies soon. I'm having mad fun creating them.
Our new album is turning out to be a real hoot to produce because my 5 year old is the boss of me (insert eye roll here - LOL). I have to hunt down hubby later and make sure shorty Skypes me as soon as he gets off the school bus because I've got new music for him to opine on (seriously people - LOL). For those of you new to my blog, Stephen Isaiah Starr is the mini-mogul PDD-NOS puppet master of the band. For someone who can't read he really is quite helpful with making snap musical decisions. Little Dude is mad funny and stone cold blunt. Very blunt being an understatement. No such thing as tact and diplomacy with the Wee-Why?-Monster (LOL). If I had to describe Stephen, the Minion Blur in a studio setting I would use these words: Does. Not. Kiss. A$$. EVER. If you freaking whomp you will hear about it from both of my kids, but especially Mr. Step (with gusto - evil grin).
My fave frowny face... the one where Step contemplates delivering a b*tch slap (LOL)
Since you guys keep asking - yeah, we do have 5 songs already mastered with 6 to go, possibly 8 by Sunday, if Stephen the Minion Blur is on Skype tonight to give his wee people approval. Pssst... Nothing goes on our albums unless both the shorties like it so I have to work really hard at keeping them entertained. If Stephen dances we automatically stop tweaking and start recording. He's our litmus test for whether a song is done or not. Then we e-mail a few to a handful of objective pals to get feedback (because he's only 5 and you really should get a second and third opinion after his first take on the creative matter - LOL). Shorty sometimes hums what he wants played. My job is to figure out what those hums mean or distract Step with the electronic drums (very silly grin).
Right now we're in NYC on a late lunch break answering some e-mail while waiting for the boys to go on-line in Florida. We decided to tease you guys with a sneak peek of one of Claire Legrand's musical spoof author tracks for the Book Club Blues album. I know some of you guys e-mailed me for the "Unicorn" track because of the Vicki Pettersson post but it's not quite finished yet so we're giving you Legrand to listen to instead... It's kind of cool, like her. ;-)
Gotta go... I've got more magical musical silly stuff to arrange, twist and compose so my 5 year old can bless me with a long distance opinion today. I may leave Skype up so he can sit in on the sessions. He likes to be in the creative loop and pick sounds. My Korg-N364 has 2000 voices and is programmable so this isn't work, it's a fun game for us (LOL). That Unicorn track is for him. He really likes Claire's blog. It has pretty pictures and a few stick figures on a mad fun snarky post about writing books that he can't read but really enjoyed (LOL). We heart Claire for that.
Ninja Librarian, this track is for you. ;-)
