How is it already February 2013? Seems like it should be like… February 2012 or something, right?
If you’re not sure what I mean by that, don’t worry, neither do I. You see, this is what happens when I’ve got work to do but my head just isn’t in it. My brain goes all over the place. So I figured I might as well capture it in what is sure to be one of the odd-duck’s of my website’s blog posts.
Right now I’m working on music for 3 short films (and a few other projects but I’ll save mentioning them for later). One is a a cool little thriller/suspense film and I’m almost done with it. I’m going to be delivering my first complete draft of the music tonight/tomorrow morning. The director loved the first clip I sent him, so I’m sure that the finished thing is going to turn out great. It also plays right into my strengths so it’s coming along really easily and quickly. As soon as I finish writing this I’ll force myself to get back to that. If the creators of the short are OK with it I may also post a clip of the music on my site next week.
After that I’ve got to continue on the other 2 shorts, which are both animated. It’s really cool to finally get to work on not just one animated project (which is something I’ve always wanted to do), but two! One of them is a really cool, serious, dark western, the other is a funny space comedy. The western is almost done and coming along great. The other one I’ve only just started, but I have plenty of time to get finished. That will probably be my main focus next week, and I’ll try to finish the other 2 this week.
Aside from those, I’m also working on story ideas for Project M, which is a movie that focuses on one of my comedy-rap side projects. I don’t really mention that stuff too much on this site because I try to separate serious Dave from ridiculous Dave, but it is going to be a wild, fun project, with an original score by me, so you’ll definitely hear more about it gets closer to completion.
I also need to write a new blog post… WHICH I JUST DID… Is your mind as blown as mine is right now?
More news about my upcoming album soon. Well a little news right now: I think every song for it is at least started. Now I just need to reign it all in and start finishing it. The album will be around 15 tracks (from the 30 or so that I created for it). It’s more electronic than I ever imagined it being, but still mixes all of my influences from new-age to film score to industrial to alternative rock and hip-hop. But I think you’d find it in the electronic music bin at your local Tower Records… Those don’t exist anymore do they? Oh well. You’ll find it on my website, and that’s what counts.
Back to work.
