Vocal session [Feb. 24th, 2008|09:49 am]

Vocal session: What Do You Think Of Yourself? 07:21

This recording started off as a quick demo in 1999, with Garrett and myself playing acoustic guitars and singing. I forgot it existed, and then "discovered" it a few years later, and used it as the foundation for this version in progress. This is me re-doing the lead vocal.

When you see dissolve transitions in the video, that's because this is a composite of a few takes (not my usual seventeen billion, mind you). In most cases you're seeing the same take you're hearing (or at least one of them when the voice is doubled up). Occasionally, though, the audio compositing involves "stealing" a single word or syllable from an alternate take, so forgive me for not rapidly switching between shots every time that happens.

Thanks to Coke Bear for moral support.

See this post at KeithHandy.com.

I'm not demanding that everyone buy it, so much as absorb into your collective consciousness the fact that It Exists and that You Eventually Need To Have It. :)

Bass sessions 9/13/07 [Sep. 14th, 2007|09:45 pm]

[mood |productiveproductive]

Bass sessions for three of my songs, "What Do You Think Of Yourself?", "Selling Purple to the Blind", and "Soul Peer".

I have the bass relatively prominent in the mix for this video, so you can hopefully hear it clearly, but I can't make any promises if you're watching on a laptop or have tiny speakers.

Wild mouse and fancy mouse living together harmoniously [Aug. 17th, 2007|01:50 pm]

For anyone who doesn’t already know: little brown Ralphie stalked the cage for several weeks this past winter, and finally moved in. The other one is Emily Junior, a “proper” pet fancy mouse. See how well they get along despite their divergent backgrounds?

I’m sure there’s some political lesson in all of this, but considering that Ralph actually barged in uninvited, I think I won’t go down that road.

Sorry, it's strictly rhythm in this one, ain't makin' it cry or sing. But you get to spend a few minutes staring at me, and that's worth the price of admission.

I don't know why it hasn't occured to me to post these here:

Above: "I Like To Swear" by Keith Handy (aka "openreel").

If this vastly improves my hits, I'll resurrect my LiveJournal just to embed more of these YouTube performances for all you lazy, lazy people. :) If you want to actually read what I'm sayin' these days, though, a reminder that I actively maintain keithhandy.com and would love to see y'all leaving comments there.

keithhandy.com update [Aug. 27th, 2006|03:44 pm]
Acoustic Savant
[mood |enough about me! how are YOU?]

New (refurbished, actually) song uploaded to keithhandy.com, AND wait wait wait it gets cooler, after you enjoy the song you can spend an intimate moment with me picking at the overdubs! It's almost interactive! In a way!

This is what a website looks like!

Don't forget, if you use Bloglines or any kind of RSS aggregator, then this whole "I can't keep up with some external website, I need to have a self-updating friends page" thing becomes moot. RSS is like a friends page for the outside world. You can even include LJ journals on it!
