I've got plenty of parallel personal projects going on, and sometimes I even fail to keep track of them. But I like this: it's better to have lots of stuff to do, than to have NOTHING to do!
I've currently got an album on the works. I spent several months staggering around on a project, and things got especially tangled up when college got in the way. Fortunately I managed to write Eleven Gifts very quickly, and that made me very satisfied. Finally I decided to put that project on hold, and started working on another, completely different project, and it's coming along nicely and it sounds... well, interesting. It's very abstract, electronic and far removed from the likes of Highways. It's also very mixed and rhythmic, and I'm hoping to complete it in the next two months, maybe, now that college is finally over, and over for good.
