Insecure Steps

Started this project on april, 3rd, just to fiddle around a bit with my new FLStudio8 and the three synths, Poizone, Toxic and Morphine. I also use the Sytrus.

With so many great synths this should be a piece of work, but you might be disappointed. For me however it is a great step: this is the first piece where I tried to make music completely intuitively, using my computer keyboard, leaving behind my classical background. There are no samples. Unfortunately the piece is rather short, but that prevents you from getting bored.

I finished it on april 10th.

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
