Piano, Strings and an 808 heart beat
I hope everybody had a great holiday – I certainly did. I suspect I’m like many of you in that I use Christmas and New Year as a release valve after the pressure of the year. Two weeks of relaxing, hanging out with family and friends and drinking and eating far too much – I love it!
2009 was a particularly challenging year and yet looking back – music2work2 made giant strides forward. We completely re-designed the website, changed the logo, moved to a new recording platform and a new keyboard, distributed to iTunes and Amazon MP3 stores, wrote the score to a unique animated movie and sent out our first newsletter. Not bad on reflection.
I cannot tell you how excited I am about this New Year – I’m going back to school next week to learn how to use the Topspin marketing platform – this will make it much easier for people to listen to and easily share music2work2. I haven’t taken a class in 20 years – should be fun
This track was inspired by a chance encounter with a Techno gear head masquerading as a University professor – it was a great evening which resulted in us working up a piece built around a Roland 808 and an old Juno 60 – you can listen to the audioboo clip here. Craig’s working on it for now and when he’s done I’ll add a piano track – I think it might be kinda cool.
