Once again, I find myself coming back to WordPress and considering how to use it better. I’ve allowed it to lie fallow on more than one occasion but it’s formatting options remain attractive over other SNS. Initially, the idea of the blog was making posts about visual artists working in music and musicians working in the visual arts. It was my hope to report on the projects and people where these disciplines crossover and the results of such projects. Now, I have become a part of that crossover. I find myself more active in music with the visual arts still having an important and supporting role. I remain enthusiastic about both.
I now have three record labels following my SoundCloud account which has been an encouraging but surprising development. Maybe in the back of my head I was hoping that this would happen but I wasn’t doing anything to actively seek it out. There were a number of inspiring events that led up to this shift. A hope to explain this and that readers would delve into these posts is always an elusive risk but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Another reason to reactivate this blog is to share things I’m discovering in music production, music theory, and what others are doing of interest to me in this way. Either through production tools that are still current or will become new (as a change in studio gear is coming along soon) as an account of a musical, artistic, and technical journey I want to share. A part of this is going to be detailing my migration from Logic 9 into Logic Pro X and tips I hope I can pass along.
In some respects, I might be working backwards to explain more efficiently how I got to where I am with this change. There will be visual and musical details to recount.
Every artist has to work from within their personal experience and this has been no different for me. A part of what I want to share is how dreaming in music was no small part of what inspired this uptick in musical activity. I’ve found a few scholarly articles to share about this. There will be posts about home production generally, either from other internet sources or my own. New photographic posts will weave in and out but I’ve found at this point in my life, there are issues of finding subject matter, lighting, and their availability that have not worked in my favor – so, I turned to music, which can be there on days when photography can’t be easily managed. All the best, there will be more soon.
