Hey guys! Thought I’d give you a little update about what I’m up to this month – fairly busy on the uni front, but I’m going to try to fill you in what I’m going to do music, YouTube, etc wise!
- As you may know, I’m on a mini-hiatus from composing until the Christmas holidays, where I’ll have more free time, and more motivations to continue with re-arranging what ideas I have, and I’ll also be starting my composition module soon after that, to hopefully gain more ideas, or even develop new material! Watch out in the new year where I’ll start regularly updating about my compositional projects.
- Speaking of which, I have started an untitled project with my friend, based on djent-influenced progressive metal, taking influences from Periphery, Animals As Leaders and Tesseract. My friend coming from more of a djent/core background, whilst I’m from a progressive/fusion background, it’s interesting to combine sounds and ideas, and see the results of that. It’s a really exciting progress on the writing front, and I hope to update you more on it once we develop and start recording more material.
- YouTube plans. I hope to do some improv over a more traditional jazz sound, and have arranged a variation of N.Simone’s Feeling Good to do so. I have yet to think about what my other video idea may be, but I will of course let you know in due course – in fact, what type of thing would you want me to do next? A lesson? A jam track? A composition? Something different? Let me know through Twitter, or comment on my YouTube channel.
- Ever wonder about the type of things I have to do or write for university? Well you can find out here, where it’s a general blog of the reviews, analysis and more that I do during university, and detailing my aspirations for during and afterwards.
So that was my general update, thought it’ll be a good idea to do a least one monthly update about what I’m doing with my month at the moment, whether through the website, via YouTube, or both!
Question: would it be a good idea for me to make a second channel for more vlog-based, miscellaneous, off topic video? Where I will also be more encouraged to upload covers on there? Let me know in the comments section!
