Its so much easier to be angry than it is to love
I'm Reasonable Happy
Blates stole the title of the title of the blog from Fi’s Tumblr! But it sums up the appropriate contentness that life holds!
If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom,...– Frank Zappa (via sp3ak17)
A confession of mine I guess. Cliched as hell but I purposely push myself to my limits emotionally and physically of late, fuelled through a discovery that insomnia pushes my creative boundaries to dizzying heights! or in other words, I work best when im at my worst =]
Production Diary Pt.2 - Setbacks
Yay for money issues! After having some issues with the rent I sadly needed to sell my Korg Electribe! To anyone that knows me they know that this is my little baby and the heart of both my production and live sets. Selling it however may turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Altho it means I have now lost the biggest part of my production arsenal I do now have a desktop PC although not one that...
"These songs" - Production Diary pt.1
“These songs are not about you” 01.05.12 This is the title of my solo debut EP. Still working on material for the band project alongside solo acoustic artist ‘The Sea The Sky’ (Fiona) With an aim to get that project gigging around the middle of the summer! So These songs are not about you? A slightly ironic EP title yet one that suitably fits my feelings at the...
Debut solo STALK’r ep :D
Musicianship and the Heart
Too many people do things for all the wrong reasons As with many things alcohol is the catalyst for many a great conversation and one such conversation sparked off a though process into why people get involved in music. What their motivations are and what is it exactly that they do? Im pretty lucky to be surrounded by so many talented people and it wouldnt be a surprise that being around...
What have I acheived with music?
So its not all doom and gloom in my life eh! Sometimes you just gotta look at life in a different light! A fair few mates having great successes with music. Some are in bands that have been signed, some are DJing some pretty big events around the world. Others are receiving great interest from the internet and putting out tracks on indie labels! When I look at what Im currently doing it...
New lil mix tape thing I did cos I was bored and...
Finally! The Past & Future...
House move is close to being sorted I imagine, got a plan sorted to save enough money and going through my finances on monday! May even have a job interview! But before I digress too much! The debut gig was a shambles! No way around it! Setting up was a bit hectic, had help but almost made things more complicated, need to practice on setting up! Main problem from the set was caused by my laptop...
Busy Busy Busy
Only a short ramble! All finished now! Entirely nervous! Utterly exhausted! Got together a nice little ambient set, will be interesting to see how it goes! It has been an interesting week and an even more interesting day as I have cleared a few more people out from my life who where negative influences in every way especially on my emotions! Im forging a new path starting tonight to clear my head...
The morning of...
So today is the morning of the gig! Whilst the other half is asleep in bed im sat in the living room at 5am writing a blog and still putting together music! Bit late but in all honesty I was going to be cancelling my part in the gig supporting Talk Down Frank at Voodoo Lounge. At the moment in life everything seems to be going wrong! Im in work but not earning enough money, struggling trying to...
A rambling on emotion, music and the future
I felt the need to ramble and then remembered I had a tumblr account woop woop! Big thing that has been on my mind is the connection between music and emotion. I’m told outwardly i’m not that emotional but from personal experience I know that the music I listen to is shaped by what i’m feeling and thinking. I beleive the music I write is largely shaped by the same emotions,...
Thoughts on a blog noone reads!
