Today I worked on a track called ” etherdrive ” , for a project called ” Song a day for a year ( SADFAY ) ” by a musician called Martin Byrne.
Basically , it involved laying down a very rough track from scratch , without any premeditated work done on it. I found it interesting , and kinda cathartic to work like this , but , I found it difficult letting go of it as I realised there wasn’t enough time to get everything sounding just the way I would’ve liked. It was a bit like working to a brief , as the time element was paramount and the emphasis was on speed.
No cowbell !!
Martin has collaborated with a whole host of people in the course of the year in question, and with such notables as Duke Special.
I have no idea what to expect from the track I sent as Maartin Byrne is a very experimental artist and likes to work cross-genre , as do I.
Martin has no plans to quit with a sigh of relief once the year is completed , and already has ideas about doing a song a week , next year.
I’ll be sure to link to the end result once I hear it , but if you’re interested in Martins’ song a day for a year project , you can read more here
