[PTS013 - SONG] Marshmallow Mission - Careful Planning

Life changes, fast sometimes. Brilliant ideas fail, progress is lost, chaos and stability fight each other, with chaos coming out slightly ahead. Careful planning for the unknown might help. If it doesn’t help, at least it keeps us busy, thinking, occupied awaiting the next change.

[REDO] Marshmallow Mission - Workaround

Hey everyone… I decided I didn’t like the mix/lack of complexity in the first version of Workaround, so I’ve remixed it and added some stuff… My heart wasn’t in it the first time (I just wanted to finish something)… I like it a whole lot better now… take a listen again:

[PTS010 - SONG] Marshmallow Mission - Workaround

Sometimes you need to get something done. Sometimes things stand in your way.

We recorded this one on the same day we did People Say, but I was lazy and uninspired. Here it is now.

[PTS008 - SONG] Marshmallow Mission - People Say

This is a fun upbeat one and I did all the non-drum recording in Sonar 7, which I’m learning lately. The drums were recorded with one SM58 set up in front of the drum kit. They sound pretty nice for the extremely simple setup.

We’ll be doing more songs under the name Marshmallow Mission (which is my friend Dan Bernard on drums and me doing everything else), using the same quick ‘n’ dirty drum recording technique.

Also, perhaps of interest is that this song is kind of a rework of That’s What People Say, from my earlier work, Songs of the Month 2005.
