I figure before i start working on the new album i’d do some paintwork and re-arrange my bedroom studio just to create a new mood. And its ready now, its marooooon red baby! 🙂
Still going to add some artwork for the walls at the moment too. So yeah….here we go again.

Yep, zero progress so far. Been having some kind of songwriter’s block. Haven’t find any guitar tunes/construction that interest me. Haven’t find any lines that interest me. Also i’ve been having this bad cough for more than a week now, doctor 1 didn’t work, going to another one tomorrow.

Saya ingin pergi ke New York sendiri. Menyewa sebuah kamar hotel di sana for God knows how long, and just write and write and write and write music for my 3rd album.
Jalan-jalan sepanjang hari, nongkrong di cafe. Mampir ke toko gitar and being able to get any guitar i want, bring it, or them, back to the hotel and write again.
Stay up all night, sleep all day, writing writing writing. I’ll bring along my portable recording equipments and record the songs as well.
I’m a happy man.
Below is a mood board i compile to portray my songwriting journey in New York.

Its 3rd album time. Fun, but daunting at the same time.
I’m not in a rush, i set no deadlines. I start a lot with clearing my mind and ask,”What will it be like this time Adhit?”.
What will it be different this time? Are you still going to go mellow-galau like the 1st and 2nd album? Are you going to play differently style-wise? Some people say your music is monotone and even boring, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to play that hollow-bodied electric guitar you’ve been thinking of lately? More instruments this time? bass player and drums maybe? All english songs? Will try to write more Indonesian songs? How many songs are you going to write? or how many do you want on this album? Are you still going to give them away for free on the internet? (everybody goes YESS PLEAASSEE!..), Maybe you just want to go experimental this time, do something that is not you? Are you still going to record on GarageBand? (start to get technical), are you going to go Protools? Will you experiment with drum machine softwares?
Yes, questions questions questions. While i’ll try to remember all the questions (and hopefully come up with answers), i’ll just keep playing my guitar for now, that’s usually i stumble on song structures, and hopefully words will come for them.
Yes, here we go again.
