YOU DON'T KNOW A THING ABOUT MILES DAVIS
He isn't jazz; he's punk.
Day 3 of the 5songs4weeks1EP adventure is coming out faster than I had expected. The only thing I hate about demoing a song is the limitation of tracking parts with often cheesy-sounding MIDI. It gets the blueprinting done, but, aside from that convenience, it's an uphill battle when the actual analog tracking happens. Oh, how nightmarish that can be. Below are a couple conceptual ideas.
What's strange is that I know virtually nothing about hip hop but I fucking love sampling live hip hop drums to tweak and loop them. This is going to work very well with a vocalist who melodically floats. You can learn a lot from Miles Davis in that he says so much with very little. I want a vocalist who will do just that.
I think I know who I'm going to call for this, and I know it's going to piss tons of people off.
But you'd be stupid to not do something just because of people.
