So after spending too much time doing that old craft of setting Bach to Moog Synthesizer, I have started to actually write my own music again. Sort of… But there are consequences.
I have written about this many times, but I have a difficult time being deeply involved in more than one art (craft). If I am deep into visual arts, and I mean really studying it, not just a few quick sketches or creating a book cover for my latest, I am not deep into writing or writing new music. The same with writing a book. The deeper I am into it, the less time I have for music.
And then there are transition zones. This is when I am switching gears. I might suddenly jump into a project in a new art and devote all of my attention to it. When I am done, though, I pretty much have to push myself to continue or I will snap back into whatever I was doing before that project. At some point, that “new art” will become my “current art”. That time between is the transition zone where I might go either way.
As I’ve said, I am transitioning out of writing. Yes, I will continue to write, but until I am firmly established into my music, it will be sporadic. Once I have settled into music, I will most likely continue to write, but at a slower pace.
Anyway, I am working on some original music right now. Hopefully it is good! In the mean time, as I work on it, I will post a little ditty I did last week. This is “Transitions”, though I named the video “Techno Transitions” and you may even see the working title, “Techno Tests”. It is in a sort of Techno-pop style and to me seems to be a good, instrumental transition between two vocal songs. What do you think?
I hope you enjoyed the Transition!
