This isn’t really “Rosie” as such, more of a side project. I’m supposed to be doing a 20 minute soundtrack for a drama project at Nidderdale High School. Last years theme was “The Deep”. Underwater stuff is easy. This years theme is Africa. I don’t know anything about African music…
So we went down to Knock on Wood and Andy kindly lent us some instruments to play with. We were going to spend the whole weekend on it but I managed to catch a bit of swine flu so it has been postponed. Anyway, this is what we came up with: (it goes on a bit btw, we haven’t bothered with a proper structure so it just loops over and over, you don’t have to listen to it all)
It’s a pretty rough recording, and I don’t think it fits the brief at all (this section was supposed to be Meerkats). If anyone out there knows anything about African music and is willing to offer some advice, it would be greatly appreciated.
Anyway, back to Rosie. We’re pretty stuck at the moment, what with having no money. We have a huge merchandising scheme planned, but we cant afford it at the moment (keep an eye out for Rosie branded underwear :D). I also want to get some web hosting so that we can expand the blog a bit.
I was cleaning out one of my drives last night (in my dressing gown) and I dug up a load of old recordings. They were just for memory purposes (recorded in bidule with no drums mics so the sound is terrible) but there are some pretty funny ones.
I give you Stoned Improv:
I’m not sure I should put the drunk doug recording up, it’s pretty bad (although if we get a few donations I might consider it :D)
I’ve decided I’m not very good at concluding posts…
