ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hmmmmmm....I can talk forever about me, but I'll sum me up with.... I have and am always the odd man out... Of course, I learned that my uniqueness and even oddness at times is what makes me who I am.... I actually have both qualities e.g. I create out of desire, but I also create out of necessity. I spent approximately 2 years creating this music project, The Journey.

I literally did everything on this album which is actually the norm. Although I am not a true musician, the piano and basslines are me playing them. I also of course use digital software so I am either doing the drum programming or using a drum sample or loop of some sort and adding my own modifications to create a final instrumental.

I write about my life and my experiences whether spiritual, love (whether unrequited or love from my past), or struggle. This album contains all of that... There are some religious tones in it, but not alot. If you are up on your religious history, then you will understand a metaphor or two. Smile....

So after writing the songs, I lay my own vocals with just me and my laptop. It is actually very challenging to sing blind e.g. press record on my laptop and then go into the closet to count in the song and lay the vocals.

For mixdowns, I tend to not use alot of special effects and harmonies beyond some reverb, echo, and/or delay. My thought about that is that I want you to hear as much of me as possible as the human voice and in this case, my voice is unique enough that I feel you do not need any fantasy music with over the top special effects that dramatically changes my voice. By the way, some artists do that and that is okay as it is its own type of creative expression. If you like this album, then I will encourage you to listen to my first album, Energy, at www.markanash.com as it is the same type of concepts but The Journey shows my growth as an artist and a songwriter, etc.

So..... In the end, I of course, used another software to do the final mastering of the project. I was listening to the album for a month and making adjustments where necessary and now I am finally ready to release it to the world.

Just for the record, I love to sing acapella and really wanted to end the album with an acapella song, but I could not decide what to sing about. Soooooooooo.... I did something even better.... I decided to release the acapella version of the album. It is the exact same album, but the emphasis is on the vocals. The music that you do hear is just the feedback through the headphones.

In either case, I love the art and I hope you will support the arts.

Mark.......
