New World Record
Soon, our bodies will have reached such an evolutionary peak, that all world records will have been achieved, and attaining new ones will be impossible. Next, the conscious and fruitful mind will replace the vanity driven obsessions we hold with our bodies. By doing so, we shall venture into the next level of our existence. Who needs competition when you already know your opponent's next move? Only through pure conscious though will we attain a new world record. As I begin to explore our beautiful planet, I've discovered that I will only understand our true reality by experiencing it on my own. Never let anyone do your thinking for you. My only hope is that we can break away from the shackles of money and other false truths, in hopes of learning to "LIVE," rather than "make a living." Easier said than done, but still a path worth engaging. As I'm sure you know by now, Cronkite Satellite is a one man band with a full band sound. A Boss RC-50 loop station is used to create his (my) unique style of music live, and also, in the studio. Also used to record the album 'New World Record' was a basic acoustic guitar, an AKG Perception 400 condenser mic, a BOSS SP-202 Dr. Sampler, a Korg Electribe SX, various hand drums, a harmonica, a hand held digital recorder (Used mostly in Kerala, India and heard at the end of 'Writes Me'), a few King Fisher beers, and a lot of patience. New World Record was written, produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Cronkite Satellite, using only the program "Garageband." I know the album has some 'pops and clicks' here and there (which I tried to medic), but because I never went to school for sound engineering, my ability met it's match. However, I can rest my head at night knowing that my music is REAL, it came from my soul, and it's not over produced. It's worth noting that there is NO auto tuning on this album (not to insinuate that I have any idea how to sing, but you get my point). I can't believe you read this... You are a true fan. Thank you for supporting the arts! Cronkite Satellite.
