Commercials, Volume 1

by Mr. Jenkins

/
  • The tracks were composed by a sort of "cut and paste" recording method. Lots of samples were used that came from all over. Friends, television, radio, cell phones, vinyl, etc.

about

_This album consists of 9 out of 15 songs that were released weekly by way of an mp3/email subscription service, started with the hopes of composing music more frequently and creatively.

_The Commercials Home Studio Audience (list of subscribers) started as a group of about 15 listeners, and grew to over 80 during the course of the first few months.

_All of the songs were built from samples
recorded with various electronic means
and then ultimately mixed in Audacity.

_This service ended the following Summer of 2009. This is also the first of three volumes that were produced and compiled.

_For an optimal listening experience, try using a nice set of headphones or a killer sound system.

_There's a lot of weird stuff in there.
Thanks for listening.

Track Name: Maybe, yes. Maybe, no.
Maybe you will find out / how it all began / Maybe you will find out / how it all ends
Track Name: Fire, Water
We're fire, water / We're two and two / Half and half / The mirrored moon / And what we make / shall never break / shall last for years / despite our fears / And when you're old / when you've grown cold / I'll be the sun / your favorite one
