RPM Challenge 2021
Category: Single (this is side 1)
This year’s RPM Challenge was indeed a challenge and I only signed up for a single! My month was fraught with problems, mostly having essential gear go south (mixing board was the biggie) and hearing issues (increase in tinnitus). So despite being nearly three weeks behind before I even got up and running, I was able to complete my challenge. I have to give props to Emily Gould and Matt Hayes for bearing with me and getting their contributions in under the gun.
Singles to me were always 7-inch 45 RPM vinyl records, so it made sense to me to do two sides. Since both tunes were equally good in my ears, I decided to borrow from Cheap Trick’s first album and call one side A and the other 1 (you can decide which is which).
The ocean is exotic, mysterious, and wonderful, teeming with all sorts of life and beauty. It was my desire to express these things through this tune.
