December

Last month (November 2019) I challenged myself to upload a new track to SoundCloud every 2 days – An Audio Sketchbook. 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?

I did well, really well! In November I uploaded 13 new tracks to SoundCloud and I had my most successful month there in terms of plays/likes/reposts etc. for well over a year. Not only that, it really has re-energised the whole process for me and I’m very much enjoying making music again.

I didn’t quite make one track every 2 days but I wasn’t far off. It was also quite a cathartic experience in that I finished and shipped a lot of music that I had had around for a long time – cleared the decks somewhat.

Having more tracks finished also means it’s now easier to curate them into more coherent and better quality “collections” for release on other platforms.

This month I will continue the process. I’ve tweaked the release schedule to a new track every 3 days rather than 2 as I feel that would be hard for me to maintain longer term.

I intend to upload 10 new tracks this month and also finally start releasing EPs of my favourite tracks on BandCamp and streaming media platforms – exciting!
