14. Farmer

This is the first day I haven’t left the house. There’s no significance behind it, it just never happened for whatever reason. It has run pretty much the same as all the other days so far. There is an undeniable monotony here, which sounds like a bad thing, but it’s not all that bad. Occasionally frustrating, I’m filled with a desire to do more fun things. It is a quiet life.

Work followed a pattern that is becoming ever more lucid. It is growing insipid. I did try a different approach today, though I ended up reverting to comfort of this emerging formula. I think a part of it is this awareness of a desire (or perhaps stronger: a responsibility) to post a finished, rounded piece of work each day. Having found an effective method leaves me less willing to experiment, for fear I might produce codswallop.

    Yes! Wonderful stuff (music, and words).

    This is the first time I’ve commented, but not the first time I’ve listened.

    I love the guitar riff in this track. I think you should still keep experimenting with the sampler, you could design some great music if you keep at it. Maybe alternate days between writing this lovely music and playing with the sampler. x

    It is so frustrating not having contact with you when you say such things!!! The pattern and creative block you are finding yourself in are the results of the experiment. However your music is not repetitive even if it does sound like it to you. This song as the comments above show is wonderful. I wish I could contact you with mind vibes and tell you that “sketches” for songs are great too. Gives you more room to merge the colours and textures of your original sound.

    p.s i think this song is my new favourite as it appears to mix two sides of your musical magic. Charts your progression into the wonderland of electric music nicely : ) haha

    I really like this one!

    Man! Nice guitar entry! And I like the vocal effects. I agree with Richard’s comment that it mixes ‘two sides of your musical magic’. Maybe you should try working in that overlap a bit more? Tonally it works, and it might add a bit of variety to your working process, if that feels like a problem. Perhaps it feels like you’re working repetitively because, I’d imagine, the process of creating electronic music is repetitive, at least physically – sitting in front of a computer. I don’t know.
