Good morning!
Yesterday was a .
But first, coffee.

I don't agree with how far this article goes in blaming working with digital tools to produce music. I mean, yes, go out and socialize, yes, have a break and go to the cinema, yes, play an instrument. All this is good, but it is not necessary today. And your album can be really good just from your hermit basement. You've done one album (which is pretty good). Now make 10+ of them and you'll be much better.

I have huge respect for Andrew Huang. He;'s talented and hardworking. Quite a role model actually.

It's a bit goofy and funny at number of places.

Good morning.

Last few days were successful in terms of ticking all items on the daily to-do list.

Today a new handmade USB booklet is emerging from my bookbinder+printer's workshop, a lovely new album by a young harpist & electronic musician "rouge-ah". :cc_cc:

Meanwhile the work with wearable wireless sensors and music for a contemporary dance group piece (5 dancers, premiere in a month) is starting to intensify. (cc @nescivi)

The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Always listen to the art.

That voice that's telling you that you didn't do enough today is capitalism and it's lying.
