your one-a-day and jared smith's one-a-day were what inspired and encouraged me to do my own one-a-day! from summer 2011 to summer 2012. an incredibly productive time, with a few small albums made; new hands-on forms of art; sonic, written, and visual experiments...but always accompanied by incredible pressure and quite often no little frustration.
in 2014, i joined weekly beats just after it launched, but due to health issues, i only completed about 18 songs. for weekly beats 2016, i'm just now finishing up 52 weeks of completed songs, despite even more severe physical setbacks. it's still been an amazing journey; musically, i think i've grown even more than in my one-a-day in many ways. (went modular in may!) but as rapidly as my health is deteriorating, i don't think i can handle another full 365/52 so soon after the last projects.
instead, this year i'll focus my efforts on releasing a few albums, however small. one for a cassette label; the others i'll shop around. delicate ambient collage minimalism, using all the tools and knowledge i've gained over the last year. with all the steady-stream deadlines until now, i haven't done made an album in three years, so it's time to create a cohesive work in 2017.
