Well, I’m working in a room where I can look out onto a garden so I get all the seasons as soon as they happen as well as up to date island weather. I’m watching, and adoring, Wes Anderson films.
I’m composing loads of music, they are just tumbling from me, more tunes than words which is unusual, it’s normally the other way round. That’s what comes of being happy (I’m not complaining, it just means I have to use more grey matter to get the words out there but refreshingly it means I might write about subjects other than being heartbroken, melancholy or horny!)
One thing that’s bugging me, maybe I should look it up, is when you use brackets (or parentheses if you want to be clever) and put a full stop or exclamation mark at the end of a sentence, which comes last?
What I do know is this looks like a pair of quizzical, perhaps annoyed, eyes:
Where was I? Oh yes, whilst I am composing a lot, I have nothing to release or play you and it’s annoying me, like this:
I had a conversation with someone who suggested I should release things as I finish them regardless of whether they are produced to a standard that is professional enough as it gives a snapshot of where I am at the time, but I couldn’t get along with this idea. When I ‘finish’ a piece of music, it is often not at the point I want it to be and having a fresh pair of ears in the form of someone else playing with it, mixing it differently is, for me at least, kind of essential especially since currently I have neither the actual physical tools or the abilities to get the songs to that point I need them at, hence the fact that D-Songs, Weapon of Love and the other collections of songs I’m on are currently unavailable. Weapon of Love is in the works, I am happy to report, as well as a new collection of songs. I hope it won’t be too long before I can play them to you.
