Rain Down the Drain

Andrew Cane has released his brand new single ‘RAIN DOWN THE DRAIN‘.
With this new release Andrew Cane returned to his guitar driven sound he is normally associated with. The new music arrives 4 months after his single ‘All I Wanted is to Have Sex with You’ where all music was programmed and not even one single guitar tone was featured at all.

‘RAIN DOWN THE DRAIN‘ is back to playing real string instruments and with real drumming. No keyboards or programming is involved. Even parts that sounds that like strings, are played by E-Bow guitar and and put through the mangle with plugins to alter the sound. In principle, the opposite approach was taken here, as is usually the case when music producers try to simulate real guitar sounds with plugins.

The theme of ‘RAIN DOWN THE DRAIN’ is the up and down of a musician who is overrun by sudden success and goes off the rails. Drugs and false friends make him lonely in the glittering world of rock business and he eventually sets out to leave all that behind. The classic story of a winner who becomes a loser and tries to find himself again. ‘RAIN DOWN THE DRAIN’ combines yearning mood and interesting chord changes with guitar sounds, without falling into the cliché of a classic rock ballad.

Asked what Andrew misses about his production:
” Budget, budget, budget … I would like to make a video where the starring role of the young musician is played by the long-haired Jason Butler from his time in “The Shannara Chronicles” and the used-up musician is performed by a long-haired Jonny Depp from the present time. For the women around him, I could imagine three gals from the series ‘TWO BROKE GIRLS’. Kat Dennings as a rival to Beth Behrs, who is his girlfriend at the time of his rise and then when everything goes down the drain, is portrayed by Jennifer Coolidge. But Hollywood didn’t answer yet, he added wit a smile in his face.”

While Andrew is dreaming about budget and wonderful actors and actresses a lyric video will be released alongside.
But dreams can come true -or can go down the drain.
Let’s wait and see and let’s keep thumbs up!

iMovie Export Error

You probably saw one or both of the following messages when trying to export a movie from iMovie:
com.apple.Compressor.CompressorKit.ErrorDomain Error -1
imovie compressor kit error

After 3 days of trying to get iMovie to export movies again and many users on the internet reporting this problem, I found the only working solution. There are many possibilities on the Internet, all of which I have tested and none of which has brought the desired result.

Since I keep a record of updates on my computer, I was able to go through all the possible causes one by one and compare them to a hard disk that had no system or application updates before a certain point in time and iMovie was working as usual.

To cut a long story short – I had backed up my iPhone to the affected system, which I never did on the other disk.
The update from iTunes changed the following file:
/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.Framework

Picture 1 This is the file you need
Pcture 2 Replace this file


All you have to do is copy version 1 to your computer.


End of story – everything should work as before.

If you don’t have a backup at hand, you can download the dataei here:

P.S.
The system I’m talking about here is macOs High Sierra 10.13.6.

Andrew Cane has released his brand new single ‘All I Wanted Is to Have Sex with You’

All I Wanted Is to Hace Sex with You - Front Cover

The new launch is a testament to his ever-evolving genuine sound. The new recording arrives after the release of the single ‘Lies’ on September 30, 2020.

Most listeners probably associate Andrew Cane with guitars and rock drums. Not so with “All I Wanted Is to Have Sex with You”, here he breaks his previous line in music.
In fact, not a single guitar appears in this tune and so do not rock drums.
The song is not performed vocally, but to emphasize the atmosphere, whispered.
A whisper with the fictional love on the other end of the digital connection.
The LoFi piano sound, the atmospheric vinyl crackle and analog noise , convey the mood of a lonely night in front of the computer.
As a genre, Andrew describes the track as whisper rap or whisper pop.

It describes the fictional situation of a pair of lovers who are spatially separated by the Corona Pandemic and can only communicate via the computer.
The song title clearly states what is missing for many of those who live alone and have no opportunities to meet the opposite sex.

Andrew explains, “At times like this, many people are realizing that physical closeness cannot be replaced by digital applications like Zoom over a long period. I don’t want to mention warm hearted feelings. You can easily become alienated in the long run.
Until now, probably only sailors, soldiers or prisoners knew this feelings, to this extent.
‘All I Wanted Is to Have Sex with You’ is the shortest song I‘ve ever recorded as I see it like a snapshot with a Polaroid camera.
In light of this pandemic, I hope it stays a snapshot of history.”
