I’ve been doing a bit of test-listening on the first draft of my album and after several times of listening, I found that the album pacing is a bit too fast for me.
As of now, almost every track is very melodic and prominent, but what I need is some break in that melodic action by having some tracks with more of a “soundscape”, or chill-out feel. I’d also like to add some tracks with some actual vocals/lyrics to add more variety. I believe this will make the pacing (and quality) of the album better.
Having that said, I’m going to take some time to add more of these kind of tracks to the album. In the end, there may be as many as 20 or more tracks. This project is slowly evolving to be become one large “compilation” album of my works in the last few years.
This may delay on the recording process, but I really think this will greatly improve the overall pacing of it – and
I think you guys will really appreciate when it all comes together!
