Started devoting time to #TwineCollab again! Here's the etherpad for anyone who wants to add anything: board.net/p/twinecollab ( #twine #tutorials you've found useful, especially) Adding content to the page, setting up a sign up sheet, etc, right now in time for sign-ups to start beginning March 1st!

(Heavily inspired by #MusicCollab, of course, which you should check out, as sign-ups are now open!)

Drinking my morning coffee today from my cup, with the cover art from our third collaboration album (art by @vanhaase ).

Happy Sunday! 🎨🎼💙

Happy Valentine's Day to a true friend and never-ending love: music! 💞🎶🎼

Today I finished my very first full-synth track! (and 3rd original track ever)

It was made entirely with #OpenSource #Software: #Ardour #Helm #Calf #EQ10Q

I’m still a beginner at music making so it’s not very good, but I had a lot of fun making it, and will definitely do it again!

While I wait for @awhaleslantern to assign me a partner, I'm warming up by trying to make a strange version of Ode to Joy, as part of a challenge proposed by Jaime Altozano (YouTube video in Spanish):

youtube.com/watch?v=0DuXjdkAYr

In my case, because I love making versions that are almost unrecognisable, and because I'm trying to be a bit original, I'm going to use the main melody... as a *bass line*, and then make up a main melody to go with it.

With me luck 😅

It's 2019 and HiFi reviewers are still testing amplifiers with copies of Dire Straights - Brothers in Arms. Lord help us.

The Dearly Beloved rendition from #KH3 is probably the most intense version of the whole #KingdomHearts series. First time the #music ever starts in a different major key, delaying gratification from hearing the familiar motif. Then it gets all ham with the layers of instruments + emotional #piano.

The magic of Yoko Shimomura, managing to create emotional compositions with different natures, while keeping to the same themes 🎵 ✨

How quickly the song comes together. Days ago, she suggested the song, with words: "I love this one." That's enough to try. Within minutes, a solid version is chugging along. A few run-throughs, and you can hear the heart of it. There are still gaps -- places where you're not sure what will happen. But in these moments of a band, where pieces click on contact, you feed on the energy of being together, of finding a muse, of making music. #smallstories

@TamiJo if you're trying to get back into music, you might want to know about @awhaleslantern !

Gentle reminder that being "self-sufficient" and a "self-starter," and pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, and even just living on your own and expected to be able to do everything for yourself, is actually a highly unnatural state of affairs for human beings which only became the norm in a small number of countries less than a century ago.
