Album Overview - Let's Dance by HatchBatch

12/30/2022

Title: Dreaming of You

Track: 01

Comment: The dance groove in this track is very compelling!  Originally in the unreleased Stratman Unplugged series written in 2020, this track was initially called Strat Solo No 2.

Title: I Don't Know

Track: 02

Comment: I asked myself, what’s a good name for this track.  I guess you get what you asked for …. ha.  Another creation ("Hatch") that started as a guitar/voice improvises.

Title: Get Up (Dance Version)

Track: 03

Comment: Get Up, originally released back in 2019, is all "danced up".  Features Stratocaster solo and lots of brass!

Title: Don't Be Shy

Track: 04

Comment: Written back in 2020, this track was inspired by a viewing of Big Fish in concert.  The original Stratocaster lead was converted from audio to midi, cleaned up in Cubase Score, and then converted back to audio.  It's a fast 2/4 cut time with a triplet on the quarter note.  Thus, normally called a swing, in 2/4.  Keyboard plays on the 1/2 beat most of the time.  The strings are accented on verse but pad on the chorus.  What can I say, the drums are hot! A dance track.

Title: Feeling My Way

Track: 05

Comment: I am "Feeling My Way" into a new process to create music.  This track is the start of a new vocal to instrumental series.   This track started as a Strat guitar with voice improvisation. Later the voice impro was converted into a strat guitar lead.  Next the guitar audio creates a chord track which then runs an automated rhythm guitar accompaniment.  The string part came later as an improvised counter harmony.

Title: I Don't Know You

Track: 06

Comment: I Don't Know You was written in 2020 and part of a "to be released" album titled "Stratman Unplugged".  The original track was a live Stratocaster lead, but at a much slower tempo.  This new version is much more danceable!

Title: Long Time (Dance Version)

Track: 07

Comment: Originally released on the Album "All Torn Up" in 2020, "Long Time" is a blues funk track in cut time.  This "Dance Version" is faster with more drums/bass and new soloists.

Title: Only You

Track: 08

Comment: This is my first "slow song" dance track.  The rock organ and heavy bass keep this track perky but the melody is pure soft jazz guitar.  Because slow dancing was the only thing I knew how to do, the title popped into my head very quickly ha!  So, get up and slowly dance with the love in your life.

Title: Trees (Dance Version)

Track: 09

Comment: The idea is to take prior releases and make them danceable....  Trees was written in 2018 and first released in 2019.  This update was done in 2022.

Title: Don't Give Up

Track: 10

Comment: Folk-rock track, initially written in 2020, turned into a dance track.

New Track Out! Feeling My Way Check it out!

  Feeling My Way (Spotify) I am "Feeling My Way" into a new process to create music.  This track is the start of a new vocal to instrumental series.   This track started as a Strat guitar with voice improvisation.

@billjonesmusicstudio now on Instagram!

  I've setup an account on Instagram  @billjonesmusicstudio It was a learning experience on getting a decent product to the platform.  I started the account with daily improvises, called the Video Jam Series. I also modified some YouTube videos to run on the platform.  Currently, I am working on a new method of creating music using improvised voice and guitar/keyboard.  My experiment with Instagram Reels went well, with one posting spinning up 1,200 plays.      The Video Jam Series shot 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 &q

 Sorry for the lack of output lately!  My studio computer stopped working!  I walked into the studio, heard this loud POP! and it was gone.  Experts say it was a transistor on the motherboard.  Rather than repair this 12 year old friend, I ordered a new one from AVADIRECT.  A custom H570 desktop with the following hardware: Define 7, No PSU, E-ATX, Grey Mid Tower Case TUF GAMING H570-PRO WIFI, Intel® H570 Chipset, LGA 1200, DP, ATX Motherboard Core™ i9-11900K 8-Core 3.5 - 5.3GHz Turbo, LGA 1200, 125W TDP, Processor 32GB Kit (4 x 8GB) HyperX FURY DDR4 3200MHz, CL16, Black, DIMM Memory PULSE RX 580 8G G5  Video Card (already owned, thank goodness!)
