Today I was self-indulgent. There was no one in the lab, and I wanted to listen to my own music.
Not music that I like to listen to, the music that I've written and recorded. Why? Well, it's been almost a year since I put my album out, and I wanted to see how I felt about the music.
Turns out, I enjoy it, which I know must be shocking for everyone. Not only that, I'm super proud of myself for getting it done, I'm very satisfied with how it came out.
It made me think though, I really want to write some more music, and there are songs I've started but never finished, and I've certainly picked up some tips and tricks to make my playing better than it ever has been, and all these things assist with my musical creativity.
So, looking back at it, I don't know how I managed it on the surface, but I know I actually worked on it for close to three years, so wondering why already I'm not close to having another bunch of songs ready to go. I have my answer, but that's not satisfying.
I might have a bunch of time coming up where I'm going to have not much to do, so I might start a bunch of things, or write a bunch of riffs, and then try and expand on them in the future.
I'm super happy that I took today to listen to it because I don't know how I came up with some of it, and it blows my mind that it's something that I've achieved. It's rather diverse, there are some soft songs that are friendly to all ears, and there are some heavy things, which are for the more metal inclined people. It kind of makes the whole thing feel a little fragmented, but it's clearly all mine.
Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!
