Cinematic, spiritual, or meditative, take your pick! I’ve been making a lot of music using the software Studio One, my synthesizer, and lots of loops. I tend to channel my spirituality through creative means so this particular song is important to me and I hope that some of you might enjoy it too! It’s called “The Dreaming of the Gods”.
I have made a music album called Soulscapes which is freely available on Google Drive for anyone to download. It features 11 of my favourite songs that I created in Studio One. This program allows you to make your own tunes, so give it a try if you love music!
- Childlike Wonder
- Cinematic Allulands
- Dreams on a Lazy River
- Seedlings in the Chill
- Spring Coming In
- Sweet Paula
- The Old Gods Anew
- Uplifting Dubstep
- When Puddles Become a Dancefloor
- Wonder Why
It’s been a little while since I made a song I really liked! This one is a little different, more of a journey taken during a summer afternoon nap.
I’m a fountain pen geek, so I did some tinkering on my Noodler’s Ahab flex pen. The “flex” is super stiff, not like a proper dip nib used for calligraphy. It also had a typical fountain pen “ball end” on the tip, to make writing smoother. I really like dip pens, but wanted something more in-between for daily use. So I proved I’m not a complete idiot with power tools by grinding out little curves in the steel nib body. These curves make the nib flex much, much easier — before, I had to apply an awkward amount of pressure to get any line variation. I sharpened up the nib tip a bit, because I don’t mind “scratchy” pens if they give me a thinner line. Then I widened the ebonite ink channel to promote better ink flow. I’m really happy with the results! It might not look like a big difference but it feels wonderful to use.
I made a theme song for Poo! (In Studio One, with loops, duck noises, and vocals). I cannot explain it, but it features his favourite lyrics, with help from the kids, and expresses his FABULOUS, UNIQUE personality!
(If you like strangely catchy bizarre and random things, this is for you!)
I was going for realistic, but when in doubt I aim for maximum cuteness!
