This is the first blog post of the new perhapsy/Derek Barber blog.
Because myspace isn't the worst place to blog/share ideas/share song demos, etc. — but it's definitely not the best — I've resorted to yet another form of internet communication.
Being the first installment, I'd like to share some of the music projects I've been working on recently (i.e. the last three months or so).
First, here are two remixes I did — one for some friends in an Ann Arbor band called Mason Proper and one for... um, Radiohead.
Because limitations on resources can often prove to be inspiring, the Mason Proper remix was attempted with the notion of using only the original stems.
The Radiohead remix, however, was done in the opposite manner... lots of guitar overdubs, etc. — Also, this remix features John Vanderslice reading a segment from Joe Wenderoth's "Letters to Wendy's" via Daytrotter's Bookery.
Several other demos (potentially new perhapsy songs) are brewing, and, yes, I will share them with you. Thanks for asking.
So stay tuned... it's going to get awkward.
