Summer 2013 - basically off the Cloud - a fabulous summer here meant much to be done outside! Back now for the Autumn with an ambitious program of tracks to do.
My Music Background (or lack of!) - Having meddled with a classical guitar in my teens, I attempted to record on my older brother's home studio; inadvertently overheard his verdict; and music for me was switched off like a light - that was May 1979...
30 years on, I had started to tinker with our old upright piano; which lead to buying a voice tracer; onto GarageBand; onto Logic. I have usurped my 11 year old's guitars and have set a target of 12
tracks for this year.
August 2012: 3 tracks completed and each one improving as I continue to learn piano and guitar plus develop a sense of rhythm. 2 more tracks well on the way and other ideas well advanced.
My influences, I guess would be across the board Sixties and Seventies - plus more recently (through my kids) REM; Coldplay - and also a number of Soundclouders whom I follow.
Would love to hook up with like minded souls - particularly i the Cork area. Be warned, my stuff is fairly raw compared to all the excellent work of the other Sound Clouders I follow; and my knowledge on tech and music jargon is limited....
Any and all of which - I hope you enjoy listening and I appreciate all comments - good or bad. My read on Sound Cloud is that it is an outlet for a communal creative feedback rather than a commercial vehicle.
And therefore I support Classic SoundCloud until such time as the concerns so passionately expressed are addressed.
March 2013 - Apologies for being very much off air for last couple of months - various problems not least with my internet...
