Resolutions

Dear all,

So January has come and gone, but there is one resolution for this year I want to achieve. Making music has really picked up since I returned last year. It’s all just a journey of self discovery….

My resolution for this year is to release an album or even EP of my tracks on Bandcamp or any other internet music thing.

The difference to other stuff I have done, is this time I am going to really work on them, the composition and the sound. Both a challenge, but worth it. I may even get my tracks mastered (a new endeavour).

I feel I got to get my music out there so it can connect with people who are looking for it.

The start of something new! (composing, software and teachers advice)

Dear all,

You may not know this, but ever since I got unwell during early 2009 at uni I have found it really heard to compose. Not being able to go with the flow and getting stuck all the time.

But, slowly slowly I am realising what I need to to do get compose my music freely and let it come out.

I have just started using Logic again, after I realised I am not doing myself justice by not using it as I should be using professional software. I ain’t used logic properly since my first term at Guildhall in Sept 08 and I made some cracking music around that time. I basically been in Limbo all this time not accessing my full potential.

I am also realising these days, how lucky I am to have gone to study electronic music at Guildhall, cause they taught electronic music professionally and gave real professional advice from people that actually make a living out of it. There was one time earlier this year when my elective teacher was giving me honest professional advice about the industry, software, livelihood etc, and was actually a good guy who was looking out for me, but I remember not liking him. But now I realise,  I wasn’t ready to listen to him then.

It’s also taken me a long time to realise that I am a composer even though it says so in my bio.

Basically in a nutshell, I been in a dream I think all this time I think, and I am starting to believe in myself and making the choice to be professional about my music making.

There are so many things I want to try out as I am so talented at music, but who knows where my career will be, time will tell.

I think I am slowly becoming happy again lol, doing more things, and being responsible.

Love for all,

Jem

p.s. I hope one day I can tell you that I made it, doing what I love, earning a living and i dunno starting a family.

Soul Light

Dear all,

I would like to introduce to you, my latest EP, “Soul Light” 

This EP is for solo guitar and was designed to be used when in meditation and relaxation. When I made this EP, I knew that it must connect deeply with the individual and be a direct experience. So I therefore did something that some may say is risky, and recorded the whole EP…in the moment, in one recording.
