im 97 days into my current creative cycle, where every day a piece of music is written or recorded or mixed or some piece of art is envisioned, created or finished.
in all of that, i realized i had kind of lost perspective.
i tend to work at things in pieces, and as a result sometimes seeing the whole picture becomes difficult as getting caught in the mire of minor details obscures one’s vision.
i am finally at a point where the various projects i have been working on are reaching completion, and as i sat down with my studio logs and my to do lists, i was both shocked and slightly overwhelmed at the scope of what i am trying to do.
‘scalesofangels’ are currently planning the release of two lp’s, and there are an additional 3 ep’s and 5 lp’s in various stages of completion for the different projects i am involved in.
when i look at what is done, and what is still to come, it all adds up to more than five and a half hours of music.
as i listen to the pieces, i realize the music i have been making is better, more honest, more heartfelt than anything i have done in quite some time, and the thought of putting it out in the world and discovering the places it could take me as a musician and the ‘you’ as the audience has re-invigorated me.
so, head down, im going to get this finished, and will get out there to see you soon.
