I'm Mark from Lanarkshire, Scotland.
Tracks formed using:-
Propellerhead Reason software, on Asus laptop.
Korg Gadget on IOS.
Chordbot on Android.
Vocals recorded, using AKG P120 mic, through EVO 4, into Reason software.
Mixed exclusively on headphones. I have no speakers, I need to find space.
Well 2021 has been a blast. In a nutshell, I got head cold, then ear infection, my balance was screwed for a few months, can't drive, cant work, bye bye from company after 19 years. Loyalty huh!!! Six months of stress, now I is free. New opportunities and all that.
I'll probably have to shave the beard for a new job though Is it too early to get a gig as Santa
I had to put it on the back burner, but I was hoping to buy some new gear this year, Behringers poly d and vc 340 were the targets, but now I will have to concentrate on boring stuff like paying bills. Still there is always next year.
Don't know what I'm going to do music wise this year, my head is still a bit frazzled and I haven't written anything since I abandoned FAWM. Would it be possible to mess with other peoples stuff if I have writers block, I don't know??? It may be fun. Still, "ONWARD AND UPWARDS" as they say, or "CHEER UP IT MIGHT NEVER HAPPEN". Pah!!!
Well good news, for me anyway, I have found some contract work. Bad news, or is it, the commute is brutal, so can't see me doing any music on week days, might do some weekend stuff if I have time. I will try to complete the six or seven songs I have in the pipeline.
Ok it's 8pm Glasgow, Scotland time on the October 28th 2021 and the clock in the corner advises me I have 3 days 5 hours left. I have 7 songs, in various instrumental forms, present on my Reason board. I also have some lyrics, complete and incomplete, that I will try to use on the music, but will probably put on the unused (never used) pile. That's 77 hours divided by 7, which means 11 per song if I don't eat, sleep or do anything but music. No work or play or anything else. In reality if you factor in, 3 working days and travel, 3 nights sleep, eating, having conversations, cooking, taking the garbage out and most importantly staring at the tv, then that's 36+15+3+0.5+0.4+0.1+10=64, which means I have 13/7 hours per song. No problems I hear you say.
Popped in to tidy up and listen to some cool songs. To be honest I can't be arsed finishing what I've left, which is a pity, as it was quite a nice batch this 50/90. If I do feel inclined in the future, I will hopefully complete this project. I wouldn't put money on it though.
