Demo-land / by Melanie Ida Chopko


I'm one more week closer to finishing my set of eight click track demo! Though I know abstractly this is a learning process to prepare for The Real Deal, I'm always surprised at how much I'm learning: how though I'm recording the seperate pieces, I need to plan on what they will sound like together, rather than having an instrumental solo under my own singing. How essential it is for me to have other ears listening too, to say 'that's absolutely good enough, You can move on'. How freakin sensitive mics are, and how amazing it is I have roommates who will freeze from their tamale-making-day-off-cleaning-dog-galloping so I can take four minutes to try it again.

Four down, four to go.
