At the start of the year, I thought the Acid42 project was dead. Turns out all I needed was a new set of sonic tools.
How once I decided I wanted to create more music, I suddenly got handed two remix projects, but then… I dropped the ball. Epic fail? Nah. I still learned good lessons.
It’s been a long time.Probably about three years (or more) since I last produced a new Acid42 track.Here’s how circumstance and collaborators brought me out of the creative hole I was languishing in.
Back in 2010, I joined a month-long music challenge: to produce and record an album within the 28 days of February. The result was my third full-length album, Experimentum Crucis, which I am mighty proud of. I’ve decided to join the fray again this year and align myself with other crazed musicians squeezing their creativity out in a month of quick decisions and quick edits that we call the RPM Challenge 2013.
