Aleatoric Loneliness

And so it begins ...

I live for music ... among other things. I love to create music and make things that I think sound pretty darn cool. So far, I've not had much success and apart from the odd Microphones cover I've not created anything that good or original.

In two or three weeks time I break up from school and my compulsory education ends. I have a long summer ahead of me, and during that summer I plan to be as creative as possible. Taking photographs, making music, etc. I plan to make a number of (hopefully, original) songs with my friend, Jemima. She is a musical genius, and I am not. But hopefully, together, we'll create some stuff that is worth listening to - but for the moment I shall continue to experiment on my own.

Bradford Cox, solo artist (Atlas Sound) and frontman of Deerhunter, runs a very successful blog that I have fallen head over heels in love with it. It's amazing, and the music he posts there that he creates in his free time is equally incredible. I plan to do something quite similar. This blog is a documentation of my musical progression, and a place to post anything I create that I feel is worth sharing - for free, of course.

During the winter 2007 I created a short EP entitled Aleatoric Loneliess.
I was lonely, and the majority of the songs here are down to chance (hence the title). Each song was recorded in one take. I would improvise a number of chord progressions. Over the top of that I improvised riffs and over the top of that I improvised vocals. They all gel together quite nicely and this EP is probably my biggest success. I hope in the future I can continually better myself, but for now here is my first EP. Enjoy.
