Albums on Bandcamp

I've now got a couple of initial collections available on Bandcamp.

Sketches

I seem to work best if I have a set focus for a while, a project. The latest tracks I'm producing are simply entitled "Sketches". I'm mainly working with some new sounds and effects that I have for Ableton Live specifically the free Spitfire Audio Labs and BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover plugins and creating some soundtrack work.

Lockdown

We've been under lockdown in the UK for 7 weeks now. During that time I've mainly been doing DIY! - making our house and small garden work better now that all the family are living here all the time. Two adults and two children in the same space all working from home requires more workspaces than we usually have.

Studio Space Update

December

Last month (November 2019) I challenged myself to upload a new track to SoundCloud every 2 days - I was looking to break out of the rut of perfectionism I had found myself in and inject some energy back into my music making - so how did I do?

Audio Sketchbook

I suffer from a common problem - not releasing work until I'm 100% happy with it which often leads to me overworking tracks and then never managing to finish them. So to combat this I've decided to start an audio sketchbook experiment. The idea is that I will put something up on SoundCloud on a very regular schedule - once every 2 days.

Summer Break

The summer is nearly upon us! Holidays and increased childcare! So I'm taking a summer break from music and writing. I will probably find some time to continue making music and writing over the next 6-8 weeks but I won't set myself any goals, the pressure is off!

Creative Unblock

Over the last 4 years at times I've suffered with creative block and "over-working" tracks, so much so that I wasn't getting any music out into the world and wasn't really moving forward at all. These are my current techniques for dealing with those problems.
