Goodness, where do I start?
The problem with Steven and I is that we have so many ideas . . . and we're in love with all of them
For me I'm working on a cover of a song from Brave, "Into the Open Air." I'm playing the piano on this one, and overall it's going to be simple. For starters, I don't have Steven's amazing ability to sit down at a piano and just play. We're different like that. He has a couple months of piano lessons. I have years! Plus a music degree. I'm sheet music dependent. That's going to change! This project is going to help me with this, but it's a bit scary. And I don't know what I'm doing. Music Theory was the easiest out of the Music Theory core for my degree (which also included Music Dictation and Sight Singing). My fingers don't work the way I want them too! This is a skill I really want to learn, and this is a great start. I also want to throw in some Irish flute. Steven's never mastered anything other then voice and electronic instruments, so this will be good practice for him, too.
The next combined Cover we're doing is Andy Grammer's "Keep Your Head Up." It's a fun, upbeat, positive song, and it will be a little like the Payphone cover we did. I'm not going to promise a release date for this! I've made that mistake before. Not doing that again. But it is a really fun song:0)
And . . . wait for it . . . we're working on an online graphic novel!!! Surprised? Before my youngest brother left on his mission, he came up with the bases of a story idea. We promised him that we would turn it into a graphic novel, as a gift, only that hasn't happened yet. I'm still in script phase and Steven's developing art concepts. Our goal is to get the first 10 pages up by the end of September, right before he comes home. I've been having so much fun playing mad scientist with this world . . . or should I admit to a slowly developing God complex? Ehhh, I will admit that I'm having way too much fun. Think slight Steampunk, slight sci-fi, and Final Fanstasy-ish world, and you have something akin to what Steven, Robbie, and I have dreamed up. Art Concept drawings coming soon!
Oh, and of course original music. Steven and I are working on an original song, and the sounds he's coming up with are super fun! That's 2-3 months out. Then we're going to do an original song based on the graphic novel world we've created (I can't wait to do the music video for this . . . we just got a green screen :0). And there's a few jazz songs I've written that I was just going to release under my name, but Steven's like "it would be really cool to do electronic jazz!" And I'm like "What!?" He thinks it can work. We'll see. I'm slightly doubtfull.
Anyway, are we crazy? Probably, but insanity is fun.
