Just for the heck of it, I think I'll blog tonight.  I am in a B'shnorkestra state of mind.  I'm very excited because on Saturday I will be mixing the recording from the shows with Jherek Bischoff.  I can't wait.  I love the mixing process; balancing all of the voices just right so that the chords resonate.  We are not going to do a super polished mix, just enough so that it sounds good and we can put it with the video.  I got a video of the first song from Brianna Atwell and it looks great.  She edited together 3 different cameras. 
To be honest, not a day goes by that I don't miss this project.  It's so funny how nervy you can be leading up to something, but I look back on it all as such a great time in my life.  I loved the excitement of it, working with those musicians, and the exhiliration­ ­ I felt being able to write that much.  Now I am back at the drawing boards, trying to figure out how to do it again.   I still feel like I would like to record those 8 pieces in a studio and then have another show in which I generate all new music.  Raising the money is such a huge hurdle; I'm sure I'll jump it, it just takes time and patience.  I can't let it overwhelm me, but sometimes it does.
I feel like I have been in a bit of a holding pattern because I keep leaving town.  I am either preparing to leave or recovering.  On Sunday I am going to Portugal, Poland, and Spain with Publish The Quest. In Poland, we are opening for Nneka.  I saw her perform in Zimbabwe and was blown away by her.  Her lyrics come from a really deep and honest and strong place.  I really admire that and think its so rare to hear.
When I get back from this trip I will throw myself back into it all again.  Video and audio will go up, grants will be written, etc.  Just thought I'd write a little nostalgic blog before I go.
