I realized today that if you visited the Webmention endpoint for IndieNews in a browser, it showed a 404 page, since the Webmention endpoint was only registered for POST requests. Today I added a page that is served for a GET request.
If you haven't figured out what all these videos I've been posting are, I figured I'd give a quick update.
Starting at the end of December, I've been writing and publishing one short song per day. They usually end up being a brief sketch, but the goal is to publish something "finished" enough that it could be used in a podcast, TV show, background music, or something similar.
I'm now 40 days into the project, just under half way done! It's been a really interesting experiment so far. Not that these can all be considered complete, but I've now written more songs in the last 40 days than I have ever before, so I'd already consider this a success. The pressure to start and finish something each day is pretty intense. I'm not always happy with each one I publish, but this is more about exercising my ability to come up with something new every day than it is about making something "perfect".
If you want to catch up on the 40 things I've published so far, I've been publishing them to a bunch of different platforms so you have no excuse not to listen to them ;-)
Day 40. This is mostly me playing the piano live. In a few places I adjusted the timing, and I added a couple notes that I wouldn't have otherwise been able to reach. I doubled the piano with two slightly different piano sounds, and they are panned hard left and hard right. This adds a bit of depth to it. I added the drum track at a relatively low volume to kind of keep things moving a bit more than it would without the drums. This one came out a lot more melancholy than I thought it was going to despite it being in a major key.
