The past month has been a really difficult time in terms of getting any work done on the 15th Anniversary reissue of Neon Apocalypse – when nearly all of your time is being taken up with an edit on a feature film that’s due in two weeks, you tend to find yourself letting a few other things slide.
Not unlike what happened toward the end of 2014 when I was working on my wife’s first short film Are You Listening and ended up having to postpone demoing on my new album.
And, as it turns out, that was pretty much the same story last Fall when I was first placed on this edit.
That being said, there’s something of a curious surprise that I’ve found as I’ve come out the other side – distance.
Distance is what allows us to come back to something – like music – fresh, with either a new perspective or simply a clear ear. As a result, this past week, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that two of my songs are done – ElevenThree and Dogtown.
And the others aren’t that far off.
As I continue to move forward, I’ll be able to clear more and more of the songs off my plate.
And, believe me, I’m itching to share them with you!
