of the Mount of Riches
comments for Brother Bunny here
I started this session after midnight on the day of the meeting, and
worked on it for a little over five hours.
Off the Grass
Unfortunately, I missed the first Wig meeting of 2007
because of a band rehearsal.
Session 2006-10 - New Year's Eve Party!
These are official Polish Versions of three very recent ICS tunez.
The first two pieces are finished, but, once again,
I got sick (this time with strep throat), and didn't quite finish
the last tune.
Buckwheat (Upbeat Electrocution Dirge Fest)
* Here is an updated polish, as of January 14, 2007:

I was sick (again) for this session, and didn't really finish either

The second piece liberally samples from Milton Babbitt's
analog synthesizer recordings.

I spent about 14 hours on this session in total, the
night before the meeting, between 7:00pm and 10:00am.
I had just finished reading the manuscript of Nicholas
and Karl's new book, which is all about the ICS 20-song process. I
was inspired, to say the least, and decided to do a 40-song session!
Well, I fell 14 short of the mark, but it's the first time I've ever
gone over 20 songs, and most of them have vocals! Many of the vocal
tracks are improvised lyrics and melodies.

I wanted to write an olde-fashioned drinking song, and
We Go Again
I wanted to write a Pixies song, and this happened:
I recorded the drums on this ditty with my 20-year-old boom box:
I wanted to write an Eagles song, and this happened:
I was jamming on my son's toy ukulele, and this happened:
& Forth & Knife & Fork
I started this one 2 hours before the meeting - it's nowhere near
Animal - Rough Sketch
I made these tunes with a toy keyboard called the V-Tech
Little Smart DJ Jazz 'n' Jam:
Everything here was made with this keyboard, except the drum tracks
on the last two songs, which were made with the Casio situated above
the toy keyboard. The vocals on track three were recorded through
the cheesy yellow mic on the toy keyboard.
Jazz 'n' Jam
Well, I went for 20 tunes, and
only ended up having time to record drums and bass. So, here are 20
essentially unfinished little tidbits. For fun and games, I will make
wave files available to anyone who wants to add to any of these pieces.
This is only the second time I've
done 20 tunes, and now I remember why. I can't seem to finish more
than the drums and bass for 20 songs within the time limit of an ICS
session. Heheh. Oh, well. I'll have to spend the next Polish Sausage
session finishing my 20-song session tunes.
The first piece, Arco Glissando, was made from violin samples taken
from the Philharmonia
Orchestra website. The second bit, Not a Safe Place for a Chicken,
was recorded using only my vintage faux-wood-veneer Casiotone 301, with
some added hand percussion. The third tune, Spatula King, was inspired
by general Wig absurdity, and specifically Eddie Current's lyrical fascination
with random objects and phrases.
After the session, I polished up Spatula King with new vocals and a new
a Safe Place for a Chicken
King -updated version
I decided to combine two projects into one as
they both overlapped this weekend. So, my ICS session was combined with
a noise-collage/song project to produce these eight, uh, pieces:
This was a joint session between Steven and me. I created 11 drum loops
and sent them to Steven, thinking he'd choose a few of them to start
working from. Heheh. He lined all 11 up in succession, and began recording
parts for one mammoth song. He then sent his monstrous creation back
to me, and I added some bass, guitar and a little vocals. All of the
parts that we added to the drum tracks were done on the day of the listening
session, which explains some of the sloppiness - especially the bass,
which was corrupted somehow, but I didn't have time to fix it before
the meeting. This will be a fun tune to polish, eventually.

By the way, if it wasn't already crystal clear, I'll have it be known
to all that Brother Steven is an incorrigible smartass.

Maybe this is the first ever ICS cover song. i don't know. I'm a bad
boy. i should repent. You should NEVER do a cover song during an ICS
session. That's a BIG no-no! This song was on Curtis mayfield's last
