In the middle of the chaos, I finished my track on Sunday. The B part came to me in the pouring rain. It's a fast Country number with lots of guitar called "If I Ever Could Be Someone". Has plenty of bass and slide and me singing mid tenor (as I can't do baritone). What's weird is the incredibly basic way it was done - no microphone, no vocal process, one large synth, 5 mixed tracks and a mere mobile phone audio recorder. This means getting the synth volume just right and the phone pickup in the right position. Quality wise, it is good enough a recording to hear the bass notes.Not that bad. So, I sent the demo to an old friend in The States. I will try and gradually get some feedback. Vocals always worry me of course. We can all learn to sing but the secret is the approach. Any baritone voice would be awful trying to sing high and vice versa. Most country is baritone although many of the female singers are superb. I am experimenting with country as I lack the gutsy vocals for rock and chart pop bands died out years ago.
Imagine a town. It has a population of 10,000 people. It has a fire brigade, a police force, a council, a train station, a bus station, shops, banks, churches, pubs, clubs, parks, street cleaners, schools, housing estates and pretty much all the usual infrastructure of the average town. But this town is different to any other town. This town is populated entirely by people on the spectrum. First thing first, what would such a town be like? What would the living conditions be like? How about the working conditions? In this town every manager and every director would have asperger's or autism. Every worker would also have autism. One day however a man called Tom comes to the town. Tom is different to every person in this town. He is Neuro Typical and doesn't have autism. What would Tom's experience be? He needs a job and looks through the local newspaper. He applies. He gets an interview. How would his interview go? If he got the job how would his job go? Years pass by and one day the valley in which the town is situated is due to be filled with water because a city with 200,000 Neuro Typical people 50 miles away needs more water. The whole town is due for evacuation. What would the reaction be? How would the people of this town cope with having to move, having to leave their home town?
