Hi, sometimes it just good to sing something from your heart. As my son and I have colour sensitivity, our journey is a complicated one. I am not anti-doctors but lets just say that sometimes when you have a life to live, their opinions can get in the way!
Hi, May is an amazing month for me. The light just feels a whole lot better than any other time of the year. It is just bright enough for me to still be able to perceive some of the red and orange light from winter but not too bright so that the blue of mid summer dominates and drains the colours. And it makes me feel like opening my heart wide. I hope you enjoy my loop.
Musical doodles are important things. They help to punctuate your day with feeling. I don’t deliberately doodle – they just sort of happen – and then I realise that I am enjoying the feeling, the rhythm, the sound. And it is a moment.
So next time you find yourself musically doodling – go on, let go and see where it wants to take you.
Finally my pre-amp has arrived so I am able to get some sound out of my microphone. I am just having fun playing with my voice and creating layers. This is called ‘Priming the Well Pump’. I hope you enjoy it.
As someone who would naturally want to shy away from the brighter light days, and for me that tends to start in the middle of February, I am learning to embrace them because it is on these days that I am my most creative!
What better thing to do on a cloudy day than take some pictures of your son cooking his favourite dish and set them to your own bluesy loop?!
I hope you enjoy!
I hope you enjoy my first looping the loop video!
I created this loop on a tough day when I was finding it hard to interact with colour. I am so grateful for having music in my life. When things feel impossible it can lift my soul!
So . . . my loop is called ‘Gratefulness.’
Hi, It is 5th December and only 16 days from the winter solstice. I am seeing more red and orange light and this is making me feel a bit stodgy – sort of overly grounded if that is possible! I am also not at my most connected and I am a bit outspoken!
Today though I encountered my friend – the violet light – and this makes everything different. It really disturbs the green of the grass to me but it makes me more quick thinking and gets my creative juices flowing. When you combine it with the red and orange it is an interesting combination of feeling grounded yet full of expression and ideas. it is quite special really and when it comes to music I enjoy lots of conflicting rhythms bouncing off each other and so have created December Funk for you to enjoy!
