Singer, dreamer, skygazer. Classically-trained mezzo-soprano with long choir experience, studied musicologist, amateur guitarist (so far, acoustic only), have tried to learn the piano for some years and forgotten most of it again. Occasionally abusing the keyboard and making noise on a uke.
2018 is my 7th 50/90!
- My trusty Cort Earth acoustic guitar, called Erda.
- My good old concert guitar
- MIDI master keyboard and a Roland SC-33 piano expander.
- A Mahalo soprano ukulele.
I will most likely be singing in English and German. Occasionally, Latin, Quenya, Italian, French, Middle High German, Ancient Greek or even Old Norse might have a guest appearance.
Looking forward to listening to y'all. If you want a collaboration (me singing on something, a choir arrangement or the like), just ask. I might not have much time and might be slow at doing something intricate, but I'll gladly do collabs.
One thing re:me singing your lyrics - I shy away from heterosexual love lyrics (lyrics with unspecified genders are fine) and from monotheist religious content. I'll gladly sing many other things, especially nerdy, science-y things as well as queer and pagan stuff.
2018-06-28 My songwriter mojo is buried deeply, but I long to dig it out. I don't know how much time I will have on my hands this summer; my choir is quite ambitioned, and I might acquire a large-ish freelance job that might keep me busy at least until early September.
However, I'm more prepared than last year in that I changed the strings on my concert guitar and I might even get around to putting new strings on my Western guitar! Also, I have been practicing classical guitar technique a bit more consistently in the past few months. I'll see if that does any good for my confidence in non-classical guitar playing.
