Ennui, lack of motivation, depression, self-loathing and stagnation has led me to writing my first blog entry in a long time. They say catharsis is good, hopefully this will be the first of many more to come.
Confession:I’ve been sitting on my ass for too long and letting the songs that I’ve written the past few years stew and go unproduced for way too long, while I have focused on learning music theory and writing fancy orchestral film-scores with orchestral music.
Consolation: I’m finally starting to get my act together as a singer-songwriter: I’m coming out of a 1.5 year long hiatus that I took to focus on my certificate program in film-scoring in UCLA Extension. Now that I’ve finally finished the intensive film-scoring course I finally have some time to get down and dirty and produce that kick-ass album I’ve been wanting to create in forever. With all the skills I have gained in the film scoring course, I’m confident that I can produce a truly kick-ass, “so good that it hurts so bad,” album.
My debut album will be called “Home” to capture the constant homesickness that I have for a “home” that I never had and perhaps will never have, except for brief moments when I’m completely lost in music. As Paul Simon says, “we’re homeless.”
To all you folks who love my music, I promise you, an album will be out this year, by September or October. Stay tuned and give me a shout, I’d love to hear from you.
