portland is really gorgeous right now.. the sun is out, the flowers and trees are in bloom, the grass is green and the dogs are happy.. good times.
i've been working hard on all sorts of scattered stuff.. a lot of music in a lot of different areas, mostly writing and working on King Hen songs in preparation for a big end of summer tour, about a month long (!).. that'll be the longest i've ever gone out on the road. and it looks pretty promising, 'cause we're gonna try and spend the majority of the trip on the east coast, where i haven't spent much time. very cool..
in addition, i've been working on a bunch of little ideas for short films or a collection of short films or something.. a lot of learning about cameras and editing and digital media and blah blah.. not to mention scripts and actors and costumes and such..
all the while, i've been fooling around with songs of course.. this one is for Wes, who is out in Denver these days, i think. i got this little delay box thing working again, which can sorta oscillate the pitch of a repeating echo in a sine wave shape (i think).. which is really awesome, but sorta difficult to work with.. but i got pretty excited. in this song, there is a keyboard that comes in about halfway through that has an example. neat-o.
but it's much too beautiful to sit around writing nonsense on the internet.
