My dream is to sing musical parts with someone.
Let me know if it's pathetic.
It feels nerve wrecking being an early impression of the music club I'm representing to incoming freshies this year. Feeling like I need to pull a few tricks to captivate them, and not turn them off with a boring routine.
I love this kind of transparency, as manifested with Enough Records netlabel: http://enoughrecords.scene.org/blog/2017-activity-report
Periodic #reintroduction :
A Whale's Lantern pairs up musicians at random and these musicians then create a song to a specific theme together.
We have already released two albums, which can be found at https://awhaleslantern.bandcamp.com/
Currently, we're in the middle of another round, which will conclude at the end of September (themed 'school').
You can listen to and download all the songs for free, purchases are very much appreciated and spilt between the artists.
My students from Hong Kong and Belgium- it’s been a week of f2f study on an otherwise online PG course. We have had the most excellent and intense week talking all things teaching and I did weep more than once this afternoon over goodbyes. (I am a softie) such commitment, passion, eagerness to learn, and humility. They care about the love of music and the joy it brings and that makes it all worth it to me.
I seek examples of art that presents text, especially poetry, as artwork. I'm thinking about branching out some in my own practice, which is currently not visually compelling at all, and this feels like a good starting point.
What images of text do you love? Why?
the Buskers steet music festival in #Bern has been quite a disappointment. or have you heard of buskers performing on stage? because that's what they do at the festival. they have built stages with massive amps and #musicians cannot just play, they need to register even. feels more like an opportunity for food stands to make money. 😐
Buy #art. Support artists. Don’t negotiate. It’s within your budget or not - save up. Every artist you see that posts something may entertain selling what you like if you ask politely “is this for sale?” Again, it’s their work, time, experience & originality. $upport the arts. $upport the artists. What hangs in your home that was created by hand? 🤔
I worked on a bassline synth and made it from a squarewave (Pulse in SC), played with it with patterns, and then put together last two sessions with this one.
there's a beat made from 808
& a bassline.
what's important here for me is that they are controlled from a Patterns system which allows a lot of algorithmic fiddling.

I made a music instead of giving up. Yay me, I guess. It's crazy late now.
I deleted my #bandcamp account. all I want to do currently is to put some live demos out, but bandcamp is not well suited for that. I'm trying #reverbnation now a bit: https://www.reverbnation.com/oter
there are really too many of these sites and they all kind of suck because none of them is a co-op.
i haven't played saxophone in a loooong time
but my friend wants to busk and i don't have a portable keyboard so
wish me luck
I discovered the #music by Serena Matthews today. Love it! For example "Moon Hanging Low" https://www.reverbnation.com/serenamatthews/song/4079903-moon-hanging-low Here's her website: http://serenamatthews.com
When in Sydney, NS, remember to visit the world's biggest fiddle, for some reason. I dunno. It's there and real big!
#MusicCollab, bringing independent musicians together to collaborate in random pairs.
