Music Progress


I taught Sadie the melody for the third song today. When she comes back to record the vocals and i fix a few guitar bugs, the recording for that one should be done. This song tells part of the story of how the world got to be the way it is -- wars, pollution, etc. but also turns it around a bit to declare that the band will stay strong and have a great time no matter what happens: "When the sky erupts, we'll dance in the biting rain."

Back to work!

Maya



Here's a screenshot of Mike working on a scene in Maya. Everybody loves a good wireframe. They're like the shelfing wonderbra of 3d animation.

First Update


We're working like crazy to get the website done and the video in a presentable form. We've also created a Myspace account for Katie, a Livejournal for Jaff, this blog, and a lot of other external content. I'm almost done with the first version of the flash site, there it is above.

Mike's gotten some great looking stuff in Maya moving, and despite Sadie's stomach flu she and Gavin finished the new song, called "Kite" at least for the time being.

Back to work! Special thanks to my ghostwriter for making this post suave and sophisticated.
