Pinned toot


Hello, I'm an amateur music maker and linux user (), I have a lot to learn.
I put a lot of unfinished music on soundcloud, do challenges like and , and generally muddle about aimlessly.
Nice to meet you!

I think I've done enough challenges for a while. I want to spend a little more time, lest haste on some tracks and see where it gets me.

There's nothing like listening to other people's music to get your creative brain-cogs whirring.

I'd like to collaborate with other musicians! Perhaps you, dear reader?

I put too much pressure on myself for doing . I have to remember that
a) Not all songs have to be perfect
b) It doesn't matter if I don't finish!
This is supposed to be a fun challenge
What do I want out of it? I want to improve as a musician. I want more experience working with other musicians. I want to push myself out of my comfort zone, but not to the point that it degrades my mental health.

Finally got a track up fawm.org/fawmers/neonpaul/
I'm pretty burnt out right now though. 😑

The next prompt is "food", I think I'm going to find that hard

Tomorrow is my weekly "fuck I haven't started on song a week yet better shit out something passable to say I've done it" day

Rancid, soundcloud is full of adverts now. Definitely need to switch to FunkWhale or some free alternative

Deadline for the first of the year is coming up, I'll have at least a demo, probably no more.

Thinking whether it's worth setting up a instance for people to use for this kind of thing? Or whether there's an existing one that would be good to use?

Although I don't think resolutions are actually that useful, I am trying to get into the habit of making more music.

Morning my loves... I'm going to try doing again. Anyone else into that?

Never really thought much about genre or idiom in music. It's a whole world of language I've taken for granted.

Sooo I read Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics and it's a great book, it's given me a fresh perspective on the whole creative process and I'm really itching to get back to making music now
