Wow. The past 24 hours have been pretty cool.
Uwe and silkyfish lent me 'The Shawshank Redemption' this week, which I must say was a fab film! Whilst watching it, I heard a few little bits and pieces that sounded like they could make good samples. Henceforth, they were, indeed, sampled.
So, last night (actually jezus, this is last night, err morning, err OK, FRIDAY night) I found myself sat down in front of my PC making music once again. Trying new processes, new methods, and making music entirely new to me. Atonal, purely rythmic, fucking nasty.....basically some hardcore powernoise, which I'm quite chuffed with!
It feels wonderful to finally have a concrete product of my thoughts and angst. Though without the input and support of a couple of good friends (who know who they are ;) I probably woud have just carried on moaning rather than doing.
Anyhow, it's the first baby-step to something much bigger, which, after this start, I feel is edging ever closer. I cannot begin to describe how empowering this is!
Anyhow, in other news from the land of Bob:
Slimes was good as ever tonight. Despite abject lack of cash-ola, I still attended beric's birthday meal, which was lovely. Met a few more people too, the circle of friends grows wider and wider.......
Plans for tomorrow (shit, later today, today!!!!) may include: Watching David Blaine's descent from perspex box, and/or enjoying installation art at the Tate Modern.
Of course, it could involve neither as I may be spacked out in bed. Meh.
All is good. For now.
