Hi everyone, My music always comes with a story and this is story of today’s track.
I created this loop back in December 2018. It was called ‘Happy Christmas’. But I was having a problem with the volume on my track. When I tried to put up the volume on Audacity, it didn’t translate to playing it at the right once volume when it was imported.
So some of my tracks sat unheard in a file! Until I worked out that I had a settings problem in Audacity.
And the motto of the story is that timing is everything. Sometimes we have a voice but no-one can hear it. Sometimes we have a voice and we are heard.
This is Silent Night as you have never heard it before. My looper pedal just kept surprising me as I built up the layers. I know there are a few wrong notes but it was very exciting. I felt as if my room was being filled with violin players! I could do another take but would never be able to capture the moment again. If you get through the first half you will get to hear the country twist. Hope it makes you smile!
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.
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.
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.
