What is The 365.52.12 Project?


The numbers refer to days, weeks and months. During the entire year of 2011, I recorded or worked on a song every day of the year, and published a song at the start of each week. A CD with my favorite 12 songs on it is coming in June, 2012 on Don Campau's Lonely Whistle Music, so stay tuned for that!

It was a project designed for maximum studio time, and to recapture the immediacy and joy of my cassette 4-track days. Sheer fun in music-making.

Some weeks, obviously, were more difficult than others. But overall, it was very successful, and fun. This page is an archive of all 52 songs, in their raw form.


Each page linked to below contains a link to that week's song as an MP3, and a diary of that week's process.
The list starts with the last song I did, and moves backward through the year. Thanks for listening!
