A thought from another day…is my music a product? do I have to be one to be a creative person?
If so …why don’t I just put good high quality on the musical shelf… wear nicer clothes…I just need branding and my own TV show…. My own app…my own website…1 million subscriptions to a network and my own jet and a car I will get someone to drive for me…a underground complex leading into a multi room solar powered recording studio laboratory running Linux and everything hardware musical machine worth having…

Then I would have made it? Sounds like I could be Willy Wonka or even I could make rockets and get us all to Mars incase the AI takes over…ahem…

That all aside….today I made the most amazing synth sound out of the 2nd hand coffee machine from the tip shop. It took 30 seconds of my life to record on this hand held touchscreen terminal connected to the internet.

Then I sent it via Bluetooth to my computer and sent it to a aux/return into a free distortion pedal I found in the give away bin… I thought about this again when I spend the afternoon signing away to myself on a old Yamaha home keyboard that actually sounds ok for something from the early 2000’s

I guess what I’m trying to say is that there is discovery in imperfections, perception of the process…I was having a good time creating interesting noises a capture a moment and play it back.

Getting the notes right. Learning the parts. Working it out.

I don’t understand sometimes what drives the need or the want. From a business point of view the future does not pay cash money in quantity…but from a soul or spirit…a energy and connection to people through my work I feel like a billionaire…

Been writing A lot of music. Feeling the happiest I have ever been my whole life. I have days when I just don’t know anymore…but it’s a choice to push past that feeling. And keep creating and experimenting. Coming to terms that I have evolved into a musical scientist in love with physics and nature and the expression of that through particles moving through the air at different speeds.
