Breaking Free From Radio Silence!

First off, apologies for the radio silence!!! I haven’t fallen off the face of the planet, I haven’t stuck my thumb and hitchhiked across the galaxy (as much as I would LOVE to do that!), I’ve been around, just quietly observing what’s been going on around me and stuff like that!

My last year in college has been a whirlwind. Where does the time go?! I’ve been working hard at many projects. A quick summary of what I’m currently up to- a research project on uilleann pipes and how to record them in the studio (interesting things I’ve come across regarding this amazing instrument!), my intervention project is going to be interesting and fun. A recordingย project where I’m producing Dundalk traditional/crossover group Na Tonnta. Exciting stuff to talk about there! Recording projects within the class- the current one I’m writing vocals for… A composition project for a final project for Creative Media 4th year students… A recording project for Music I engineered- recorded a bunch of trad instruments for a decent amount of tracks, very fun!

Outside of this, Trend-E and I are collaborating on some wicked electronic tracks of his again! I enjoyed collaborating with him last time…ย 

… this time we’re working on something much darker but very, very sexy!!!

I’m delighted to be this busy again! I was feeling very down on things after the rush of Christmas assignments were done, I had nothing creative *to do*. It’s well and good having free time to play with DAWs and guitars etc but when you’re not in the mood……….

I even purchased a Yamaha DX-7 before Christmas NOM!!!! Tubular bells!!!! I’ve been enjoying Brian Eno’s Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks album for months now, seriously mind-blowing music. I had to get a DX-7. Just had to. The fun starts when I learn how to programme it! I’ve been messing around, getting to grips a little bit. The way I see it, I’ve my whole life to master this. And I will.

So happy new year 2015! This is a year of serious life changes for me. I’ve been doing so much thinking, feeling, writing about my life and my life path the last year or so. I know big changes are coming. I canย feelย them. My spiritual side is guiding me very strongly and I’m learning to trust my gut feeling, myself and believe in myself.

Cue song lyrics…. yes indeed….

Probably meant to blurb out more stuff here but it’s kinda, sorta late and I’m getting tired!

More soon!!!!!!

Be good y’all!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thoughts On Closing 2013 and Some Ideas for 2014 :)

Wow, what a year it has been! 2013 was very, VERY good to me and I really feel I have grown and found myself (at least a little bit anyway!) with interesting experiences abroad, another great year at college and more musical adventures.

I always tend to feel a little sad on New Years Eve, I get a bit nostalgic and the passing of time grows ever on my mind! Today however, I do not feel one bit nostalgic- HOORAY! I’m looking forward to some great company tonight and a few drinks!

Party tonight!
Party tonight!

I’m looking forward to 2014, I plan to wrap a few loose ends musically and put out some sort of release by the end of the summer! I have my thoughts on this and I’m very excited. It’s more of a personal goal than anything, something I’ve always wanted to do…

Stick around and you will be kept posted ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m ever grateful for a great year of friendship, love, health, family, education and music.

I wish all my friends and followers a great 2014 filled with blessings, positivity, creativity and good health. Have a rockin’ New Years Eve wherever you are!

Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters to everyone! Let’s celebrate the new galactic year! ๐Ÿ˜‰
