A current, future and present thing

I impressed my cello teacher today.

Actually made her jaw drop.

Definitely going to be a highlight of the week.

I'm really getting into the expressivity of the cello.

(And I think people who type it 'cello for violoncello deserve to be 'smacked.)

Also http://natehaas.com/onetake/ now has an easy iTunes link to subscribe.

It's a lot like this button.

I expect to be doing another hour-long "last 7 months" retrospective of onetake soon.

Favorite ID3 genre of the moment: Christian Gangsta

I sat alone in the dining hall listening to onetakes 76-81 while I snuck a free meal today. It was nice company

Excellent. There's some good stuff in there (except 077).

082 is really, really sad though.

This is the text that inspired it.

i pray for the end
i pray to be dead
all i know
is i'm ready to go

The next few are pretty simple 2 minute bass cuts.

You know what, I'm looking at my iPod, and for some reason 76 went to 78. Alas! I have no 77.

I do think you should incorporate your home-life sounds into more of your onetakes. If only to make me happy.

On many of the recent recordings you can hear cats eating or playing with plastic or what have you.

Also, you can hear the neighbors waling around and on the last acoustic guitar one, fighting very faintly.

But yeah, I know what you mean.

I tried gcal for a bit. either I'm really getting tired of computers or I didn't really care or whatever, but I wasn't really captivated. iCal works well for me right now.

I recorded a cello onetake, but (of course) it doesn't sound anything like a cello.

That is the most percussive cello I have ever heard.

I've heard of composers using the sounds.

Anyway, I'm practicing a lot to record a more ordinary cello sound.

Thanks for listening!
