“Complexity in Simplicity” is nearing completion! We’ve got a couple of steps left, but in the meantime, I started a campaign through Indiegogo to raise the last bit of money needed to complete everything.

I’ve been meaning to record a Christmas song for quite some time now. Finally, I’ve gotten around to it! This is one of my favourites; O Holy Night. I loved singing it with the Thunder Bay Barbershop Chorus, and there are some very powerful versions. However, I changed it up substantially. I started with samples from an a cappella bassline that I time-stretched (originally from some of the “Pitch Pipes” demos), added some salsa/latin/reggae flavour to it, and then laid down the vocals. I kept it to only the first two verses though. I also did what I think was a nifty little solo!
The whole thing was recorded at home, with all the instruments and vocals by me, except for my sister, chiming in on the 2nd verse.
