It took me a little longer than expected to get this rundown of the rest of the demos together. I’m very sorry. I’ve been hustling my ass off, trying to keep a roof over my head and the utilities on. Things have stabilized somewhat. After this post, we’ll start to look at the work on individual songs in much greater detail.
Welcome to the first entry in the production journal for the new Cenozoic album, Lemonade, and thank you for being a member of this site. Your support is invaluable. I’ll get right to it in this post by mapping out some overall production strategy and philosophy.
Were you waiting for a first listen to the new Cenozoic album in progress? Here it is. Read on below while you listen. If you don’t like reading, I’ve included a spoken version of this post below the music playlist.
Here in the well worn office chair of John J. Goddard, countless hours are spent culling the depths of the collective subconscious brain basket, ruminating on the findings, then turning them into little totems of meaning for you. And I love doing it, damn it. I’ve written two books, recorded several albums’ worth of music, made weird videos, and so much more, friends. It’s all been in an effort to make you laugh, cry, think, or hug the person nearest to you for dear life. And I’m still goin’! There’s a new album of jazzy funk music I’m working on right now, as you read these very words.
This abundant wellspring of brain candy is the reason I created a simple way for you to download and digest as much of it as you like. It’s a membership to this site that gives you artist-direct, unlimited access to independently produced books and music by yours truly for one low, yearly or lifelong subscription price. If you become a member today, you’re gonna have immediate access to at least triple the value of what you laid down for admission. That includes:
E-book versions of both o’ my books, Dalmatian Cooking, and Lamb Goes In Town!! That’s 320 recipes and a crazy little fairytale with a lamb as the main character.
Oh, I’m not done. You get HOURS of MP3’s of my original music. The current collection includes R&B, Ambient and Darkwave, and it’s doing nothing but growing. Hell. Yes.
Is meditation and mental discipline your thing? You’re gonna get some binaural audio tracks to help you reach nirvana.
Do you like a good novel? You can watch The Art Of Self Exile, my new one, unfold here before your very eyes, complete with photos and multimedia.
All you need to do is become a $20 Yearly of $50 Lifetime member HERE, or through the menu up above.
And I need new members to help me keep producing more stuff. About 100, to be exact. Become a member today or share this with anyone you think would be interested. Do that for me and I’ll keep the good, independent stuff coming.
I love you all so much it hurts. Help me keep giving.
Whether you’re running late for work, scrambling eggs in your underpants for the children, fleeing an angry bull, or all three, “El Matador” is a high energy funky instrumental that has you covered. Written and performed by John J. Goddard, yes, that’s me. All proceeds to benefit the studio upgrade and relocation fund in progress at the time of this writing. After upgrades and relocation, proceeds will fund my appetite for food.
