There will be more updates until completion of the current project. I need some kind of accountability and perhaps chronicling my progress going forward will help to maintain some forward-moving inertia.

I’m recording vocals now. Today’s effort was on a song tentatively titled, “Metropolitan.” The lyrics, the melody, and the phrasing are all there, but as it is a more subdued song, I’m having trouble finding the right inflection for it.

While I’m quite a bit more capable as a singer than I was when I first started, I do have some decidedly fixed habits when it comes to my style of singing. I have pushed outside of my normal habits for music and arrangement recently, but I am still trying to find my way to a different styles of vocals that still feels like me. I’m broadening my palette in that regard, though, and the progress is slow at present.
