I am in the process of analyzing my career.
I listened to all the repertoire carefully. Checking stats from various platforms. I listened very analytically to everything. Quality of playing, mix, mastering, and even the album’s thumbs.
I took the list of all patterns that are over-repeated. Venues that are under-exploited. The overall analysis of my music based on my opinion versus the sharts from Spotify and others.
Doing that, I listed all the pieces I consider my best and in an acceptable release. I also listed all the ones I love that require a new version. Because the original version is not up to what I expected, or simply because I like to play them. I have recorded endless versions of “Quai des Brunes” and will continue.
As a composer, there’s a difference between a good song and THE song.
I have now enough material to list my best songs and establish my catalog.
Catalog of songs – Hervé Senni’s Catalog
I made a playlist @ Spotify listing all my Best compositions and sound performances.
Here is a list of my work that I consider my Book. Of course, I always write new songs, but I find it nice to revisit them and play them with a new lineup and grooves.
In my next article, I will publish the ones that I consider up there in terms of writing and popularity. But that the recording wasn’t good enough for any reason.
On the one hand, I want to clean up my repertoire and at least have one version that I consider excellent. But on the other hand, I want to establish my repertoire, clean it up, rearrange my favorites one more time, and write new songs.
