First Collaboration (Original) by Micah J. Fleck published on 2012/09/17 16:09:08 +0000 A handful of years ago I embarked on an ambitious and ultimately unfinished musical project spanning the globe in influence and musicians. While it never came to fruition, there are some really good fragments the recording sessions left behind. I hope to someday salvage them and reinvent the project as something entirely new. In spite of the music's uncertain fate, I wanted to start sharing with facebook what I felt were the best recordings from those days. Please give me some genuine feedback, guys. It's always helpful. This unfinished clip is a result of the first full-blown collaboration I ever did with anybody. A jazz guitarist from Finland, a drummer I met on YouTube, and myself are the musicians featured here. I wrote the majority of guitar parts and recorded the rhythm guitar tracks myself while the other guitarist recorded over what I had and sent me his lead parts to mix in with the rest. The drummer, Derek, still won't return my messages almost two years after his drum parts were laid down, so I'm assuming I'll have to just re-record the drums entirely if I ever want to release the work under my name. Any drummers out there who like the piece and would be willing to record for it? Personnel: Micah J.
