Pre production for the next Sprung Monkey album has begun, and it’s a fairly involved process. It requires us to play the finished songs that will be on the album, over, and over, working out all the different parts and getting them as tight as possible. This is the time when I finalize all of my beats, and fills throughout the songs. Literally mapping out all of the parts in their entirety! Having just gone through pre production, and recording for The Accident Experiment album, I’m already in mode to dissect each one of these songs! In a way, this is like the homework aspect of being a musician, and I always look forward to it! While most of the time I like to be exact on the parts I write, occasionally there are a couple of songs that require a small percentage of improvisation within their structure. Sometimes a part that hasn’t been previously written, happens to fit just right.
