Original Song: Zero To Sixty
This month, the 81st month of the original-song-a-month project, is a bit different. It’s not unusual that the song itself is not really finished in a way I’d like – in fact I think it need the band to do their own interpretation more than most. What’s really different is the process that drive its creation. You see I started with a video – the one you see below. I decided I just wanted to have images of number changing to a beat. The first step was to start with a 120bpm drum beat so that each shot would take two seconds. I’m not sure why I went to 60, probably because the song title drove me that way. Anyway, once I’d done it I wrote some lyrics and then came up with a very simple two chord progression. And then I recorded it! Yep, simple as that. I do think it will be an interesting song if we ever record it, but for the time being it’s just a song for this month. Hopefully I’ll be able to post a proper version of it at some time in the future.
