For about the last 8 months, especially during pre-vaccine COVID-19 days, I have been recording acoustic guitar. Some of the tracks in this release originated from several video series on Instagram. Others were final versions of tracks written earlier in 2020. Most tracks are missing drums and the volume is set fairly low. This makes for "easy listening" and a very relaxing 1/2 hour of music (16 songs, 28 min 42 sec).
I've setup an account on Instagram @Bill.Jones.Music.Studio It was a learning experience on getting a decent product to the platform. Daily improvises, called the Video Jam Series, is my current project. Some YouTube videos were also modified to run on the platform. The Video Jam Series shoots live guitar and keyboard improvises. Some jam motifs are worked out a few minutes before. The goal is to capture improvised music. Then, after initial recording of audio on both iPhone and Cubase DAW, the audio is processed. Processing can include: Adding complementary instruments Adding EQ, compression, guitar amps, normalization, tempo detection, midi note editing Importing video to Cubase, lining up audio files, exporting video with processed audio Video is converted to the Instagram "square"
