Bits, I suppose, is my first release. I’m thrilled to share it here, with a community that has been so amazing and supportive since I joined a little over a year ago.
This is an attempt at bypassing the ridiculous expectations I so often set for myself, which prevent me from getting anything done. Those expectations that lead me to compulsively record without ever editing, refining, sharing. Those expectations that convince me I need to become a mastering engineer to release anything half-decent. Bits, then, is an attempt at throwing that shit out the window and having fun in the process.
Though the recordings were made over a period of two years, assembly took the better part of a day. I found some stuff I liked, and then I forced myself to assemble freely and quickly with minimal editing. I have great respect for the skills involved in mixing and mastering, but I deliberately avoided those processes simply because they often become insurmountable obstacles.
It’s rough around the edges, and that makes me happy. I hope you enjoy.
