Speaking of Silence

I forgot to upload this!

I forgot to upload it to the blog when I made it, but since I haven’t uploaded any music for like 4 months, perhaps I can cover up my lack of music by sharing this now?
Let’s pretend that is how it works.

The cat is out of the bag

And A Way Out has been released! It has been well received, and it’s really satisfying seeing all these people react to what we’ve worked on. We’ve had a couple of weeks of downtime at Hazelight now around release. It’s been great to be able to wind down, reflect and take the time to learn new things, both in office and at home. As of now I’m learning python, checking out new plugins and learning Wwise. I’m also oogling over new mics (since I will be spending a week of summer vacation in Scotland, I’m prepping gear for any improvised and impromptu recording sessions).
For Python, I’m digging through the exercises at – I really like their setup for the course. And, you know, that it’s free.

I also tried to record my sisters kitten (he purrs, like, REALLY loudly and makes the most adorable squeaks) last week, but he tried to eat the mic (and my hand) most the time so I gave up that attempt. I’m going to try to see if any of the material is salvageable or if its just cat teeth and me cursing throughout. It’s probably the latter.

I still haven’t edited all the snow recordings from last time – but I did setup a project and import all the files. It still counts as progress.
