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.
This is my 6th 50/90!
- My trusty Cort Earth acoustic guitar, called Erda.
- My good old concert guitar
- MIDI master keyboard and two old Roland piano expanders (CM-300 and SC-33).
- PC with Ubuntu Studio and lots of Open Source music software on it.
- A Mahalo soprano ukulele.
- I have access to a (very reverberant) room with a grand piano for an hour or two now and then.
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.
2017-06-27 So, let's see if I can strike a new balance between my freelance money-earning work, living with constrictions when I can make noise, and my creativity. My songwriting mojo seemed to be largely lost in the last 12 months or so; I want to rekindle that! No idea what I will focus on this year. Singing? Weird experimental stuff? Classical guitar? Dusting off the Western guitar for folk-style fingerpicking? Writing better and more lyrics? Rock songs? All of the above? Let's find out! Also, a share of my music time might be used for a chamber choir I'm looking into (by the time 50/90 kicks off, I'll probably know more).
2017-07-03 As so often, I'm unprepared; but I have news regarding that chamber choir: I'm in! The choir leader (who lives right next door!) was delighted that I wanted to join and the audition was a breeze for me.
