Signs of life and musical adventures begin again

After a long hiatus, I have decided to try and post some regular music or writing content to see if I can revive my interest in the world of blogging.

I suppose before we set up our own company I was possessed with a wealth of creative energy to put something out into the world and show people what I could and can do in terms of creativity. Sadly, I had to suspend these dreams due to an ever growing number of responsibilities, i.e. co-running our company.

However, I feel the need to get back into the saddle and try to rediscover that potential for creative energy, whether it be short stories or sound snippets.

Over the weekend I set myself the task of creating background music for some Facebook posts. Everything started well. However, what started life as a short piano piece turned out to be the foundation for a piece that goes in a totally different musical direction to what I had planned.

Within the realms of creativity, one must strive to let ideas flow, and in this case I heard another song take shape. Thus, I began layering up synth sounds to bring forth a groove, somehow reminiscent of industrial bands. This led to me taking out the NS-Stick to develop a rich heavy sound to compliment the groove: Bliss was the result.

Even though it is only a sound space idea, I will use it to develop further ideas in this direction.

I hope you like it. DO feel free to comment and offer any advice as to changes that could be made.

    • Hi!!!!! Great to hear from you. Blogging has taken a back seat due to work load and stuff. Glad you like the song. I am working on some more at the moment. Will keep you posted.
