There are too many ideas, but here are some. I write, compose, visualise, and shape sound and combine them in different forms.
In Production (headohones ONLY)
Debussey and Messian podcast type thing
I sat down with a mic, closed my eyes and picked some music with the mouse. It landed on Debussey. So i imported it into Pro Tools, and spoke while listening to it in headphones. I then went back and crafted the sound and music around it. It was all quite synchronistic.
Unlimitations (HEADPHONES ONLY)
This is the beginning of an aural journey, that will evolve and grow into im not sure what. It will involve music, sound design, possibly dialogue, maybe story. Lets see where it goes. But it will at some point find a home as a type of album and performance piece. The idea is to come to the studio for a few hours or day as often as possible and have no real plan, and see where it goes, trusting that its my mood that defines its worth.None the less,i post it and move on, so the results may not be completely articulated and excecuted. I hope to document or live stream the whole process as an insight into the process, allowing the process to also become the product.I also hope to package it up into its own presentation some how. Its vague right now. But thats how i like it. I am yet to find a stride with it, as i need to allocate specific time weekly. But its happening. And im excited mostly about it
Sosage tells his story
The Singing Clouds
This is a test scene to an audio play i was pitching to the arts council to get funding to make it into a theatre piece. Maybe one day
The Ridderbint Of Orskul
A book i started in 2011 that quickly became an audiobook, as well as an illustrated one. It became such a big production that it needed big budget and lots of time and help to complete. This is a true love of mine and will remain shelved until i have the facility to finish it. This is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what has been completed. There is plenty more music, story and even artwork. It just needs some love. One day.
