So far, in the summer of 2017 I’ve composed two waltzes, which covers a good 66% of the waltzes I’ve ever composed.
Of the two, ALL I HAVE IS MY WALTZ is the “lighter one”. It’s not all rainbows & pretty butterflies, but still.
The “darker one” I’ll be releasing, er, later.
Mickey Mousing is a fun term which means music that thoroughly matches the on screen action it’s accompanying. The technique was mainly used – you got it – in the early silent films and cartoons.
A – C – E – A – fff-fff-fff-fff – e – d – c – b
Unfortunately I had no moving picture to go with, when making SKEPTIC SANS. I just went with imagining raised eyebrows, shrugs, sneaking, making faces of enthusiasm & suspicion and whatnots.
Let me tell you, me grimacing by my desk, writing ideas down, would’ve made a delicious candid camera moment. There’s a fine line between being silly and ready to be committed to a safe place, far, far away.
One recurring theme I’ve got when making & naming music is the beauty of imperfection.
When someone dislikes his/her body feature, but you find that especially attractive. When an exceptionally groovy drummer misses a beat in a funny way. When there’s a way too spicy bit in otherwise delicious food.
Everyday wabi-sabi heck yeah!
Ok, when producing a mathematical industrial electro-tune, I might wanna keep the human factor to a minimum. But then again, at these times the complete lack of imperfection may just be the imperfection.
Now that’s deep.
SMILE WITHOUT A SMILE IS STILL A SMILE is a Finnish smile.
I played X9OL8F to a person and I was told that it is “electronic music for contemporary dance”.
So, it’s barefooted, black tight wearing, eye bulging, consciousness having, weirdly moving iconoclasm.
I should be cleaning the apartment right now. Got visitors coming and it’s my duty as a responsible member of society to make sure the toilet is as shiny as a disco ball.
The closet where I keep my vacuum cleaner and mop and such is about 4 meters away.
The GN-z11 galaxy is 13.39 light years away and still I’m sitting on my computer and searching images of it. And not cleaning.
That’s RELATIVITY OF DISTANCE for you.
