In December 2021 I set myself the challenge of writing, recording and releasing as much LoFi music as I could in a single, 8-hour session.
Over the years I’ve realized that something unique about me as a musician is that I can write pretty decent instrumental music in short amounts of time. I practice this often, live streaming with Cubase for 2 hours, twice a week. Results are mixed, but most of the time there’s something pretty cool by the end of the broadcast.
That’s why I set myself this challenge – I wanted to see how far I could push this skill. If I give myself a day, how much music could I write?
I used a combination of acoustic instruments, electronic synths and digital instruments inside of Cubase; along with a hardware cassette player.
