My Cake

The slaying dragons tweet from a couple of days ago was about this song. Everything having to do with “My Cake” has been hard, which is funny because it’s a breezy little thing. The whole enterprise feels more like code-cracking than songwriting. Now I have six parts: drum machine, two keyboard parts and three vocal parts. I have no idea where I’m going from here. Neither does the drum loop, which rolls on forever because my Garageband to MP3 conversion skills are a wee bit limited. Just hit stop when you’re ready. Headphones, by the way, make it sound an awful lot better. Sorry about the pitchiness. It’s hard to sing in tune.

    Hey, Joan,

    The links aren’t connecting on Soundcloud, I’d love to hear it. Fix the links, please!

      Eric, I just tried and found them to be working. Are you trying to listen on a mobile device? That may be the problem.

    Hi, Joan, I’m on a Mac. If I click the link, I get your Soundclick page which shows that you have (0) songs uploaded. Strange,

      Eric, can you listen to Soundcloud tracks on the website? I haven’t made my Soundcloud tracks public. You can only listen on Middle Mojo.

    Hi, Just checked in from work, a PC running XP, I can see and play the track link here.
    So much for the infallibility of Apple!

    Great track. I love it.

    I am pretty good at Garageband and would be happy to share some tips if you like. You have my email, i think.
