Twenty-three

by Berck

Here’s Twenty-three, a new recording. This one’s different… it’s got vocals!

It’s been awhile coming. Back in October, Ben brought some recording equipment to Colorado and recorded a few songs, including this one. It wasn’t until recently that I finally got around to legally purchasing the good piano sound so we could install it on Jonah’s Macbook. Until then all we had on the Mac was the dinky piano that comes with GarageBand, which wasn’t really suitable for distribution.

That done, it still didn’t sound terribly good, so I sent it to a professional: Todd! Todd does this sort of thing for a living, and was able to make it sound really nice, I think. Thanks, Todd!

    Reminds me of Magnetic Fields.
    Also, your voice is lovely. I had no idea.
    Both of the above statements sound horrible when I reread them, but they’re meant to be complimentary.
    The Icepocalypse is affecting EVERYTHING.
    I’ll try again,
    Lovely.

    Actually, my voice sucks in that it goes out of tune at inopportune moments. This is why Todd is AWESOME because he makes me sound decent. I have, seriously, never sounded so good. But if Paris Hilton can make an album, why the heck can’t I?

    Wrote this song in ’98, long before I’d heard of the MF, so I can’t claim Merritt as an influence.

    Your song was stuck in my head all day yesterday.

  6. Jonah Says:

    Oo! That means it’s hooky, and I wasn’t even trying to give it a hook. Sweet!

  7. Neal Says:

    Jonah, that is incredible! I’m assuming that’s you singing too – I didn’t know you had such a voice! I mean, Todd can only do so much, let’s be honest here. Will be looking forward to more in the future!
