So I’ve had a pretty shit day today. Discovered that I am pretty much flat broke till April. People were annoying me and I felt ill as out. But now I’m sat here watching Red Dwarf and editing my New York Photos from a couple year ago I feel really relaxed.
Tonight after talking to my best friend/brother I have come to realise what I would like to do. The both of us are in a Hardcore band and are looking to start gigging in May if all goes well, but even though I love Hardcore music I really love Ambient tracks as well. I am currently studying Ambient as a module at University and I am really enjoying learning all of these techniques used by the likes of Brian Eno etc.
I have decided that as well as being part of a Hardcore band I also want to create my own little project which would be my take on Ambient music. It would definitely have a different feel to it but that’s what I am looking forward to creating. I wouldn’t be looking to go anywhere with it really, all I would really like to do is to create some relaxing music that I enjoy and for others to enjoy.
Furthermore, I have to come to realise how much I miss photography. Going back over my original photos from New York has really relaxed me and brought back the joy I felt when studying it at college. As soon as I get a job (I am currently in the middle of job hunting) I am going to save up and buy a new camera so that I can go out and about and reclaim that joy I felt.
I definitely think that after my 3rd year of University I will be focusing on these projects a lot. Also, me and the “brother” are looking to finally move out. I really hope that it will be in the next year or so. The only thing that is holding us back right now is our funds and the fact neither of us have jobs.
I am now very much looking forward to getting all of this under way. :)
