XXII (Recorded 17 — 27 June 2015)

This was another quick one. I find that those work out better than the planned out ones. Seven short tracks, three medium length tracks, and three epics. I recorded a few of these songs with GarageBand 10. I was ever the luddite and was afraid to upgrade to something new after years of using version 6. Thankfully I got over my fear, and with a bit of messing around, I figured out the interface. The new synth sounds are amazing! Reminds me a bit of Boards of Canada. There are some really great things on here. Lots of long hypnotic and repetitive drones.

Yes, there is an obvious animal and nature theme going on here. It wasn't really planned to be that way, it just happened.
