Ok, so here’s week two. If you want Week 1, click above...
And in case you missed it, here’s my spiel:
I have decided to spend my time over the next however-long-in-relative-isolation making things, drawing pictures, taking photos, recording sounds and making and listening to music. I’ll be putting them here for posterity and/or others’ curiosity (if not delight).
I’m not wanting to make anything personal of the whole crisis - I’m one of the luckiest ones. I just want to keep active and offer distractions for those who might like one occasionally. Please note - and make use of - the little lightning bolt icon in the top right-hand side of the page. That’s how / where you can contact me. I take requests.
Tuesday March 31 2020Mostly observational output today (see images, below). Yes, there was doodling, and a little game of peekaboo for ye - who is the artist? Tell me and I’ll send you a dollar via PayPal.
Something else I’d like to share with you is some work I’ve been doing with my chum and (now ex) colleague Jason Ng. Jason is a true artisté, like, the real deal, and has been kind enough to grace my humble home recording studio with his musical presence. We hung out at the Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio (MESS) a few times and had a blast on a few of their old analogue synths. We pulled a few tracks together, one of which had the working title ‘In Our 20s’, which appears to have stuck. A tad spooky, but I like it.
And here’s the day’s sole doodle (no time for mucking around) and guess who?
Monday March 30 2020I really have been enjoying using ink and brush. The pen is so muscular. The sweep of the brush, the uncertainty of the ink and its interplay with water.
I do have a new track for your listening pleasure: Bastardo! Much like its namesake, the piquant cheese, it’s equal parts disturbing and exhilarating.
