Not a lot of updates here lately. I've been doing some small things, but either forgot to shoot them before passing them on, or been too lazy. I guess that's what happens when you get more experienced, you're not so attached to your work anymore, just instead enjoying the process. So maybe I AM growing up a bit. But they won't make an adult out of me
Still working, still enjoying the job, altough for the first time this winter I have felt like I needed more time for my own. Well, been just trying to rest a lot,meditate, and get back to lucid dreaming & astral projection. Hell, they can take my days, but the nights are my own always
Now reading about tibetan dream yoga for example, and altough I have some problems with buddhism and the whole escape from samsara thing, it's interesting, especially the part about doing spiritual practice in dreams.
I'm taking evening classes in water colours, it helps me to keep practicing that, altough on my own time music wins usually, so haven't painted at home yet at all.
The new album is finally out, streamable for free and listenable: [link]
A beautiful double CD is available for a very reasonable price too, in special ecological packcaging.
Been doing some etching tests, and playing around with ferrous sulphide. Good for mild steel, but my first try with stainless didn't work at all. I'm welcoming any ideas to etch stainless! I saw somebody in the net used plain table salt, but the resolution wasn't that good.
Also wanting to get into electronics to start building analog music hardware, but the threshold is mile high for me :/
I'm hoping to have some more energy now that the days are getting longer, and have motivation to stay after work to do some of my own stuff here, I have a number of interesting projects in mind. Like making some simple gamelan-like instruments for a certain french musician whose music I just happen to love, and finally try to fix that theorbed bass guitar lute I have had laying around for a few years now... Also would be good to do more blacksmithing, but right now all my other more experimental projects feel more interesting.
Anyway. Waiting for summer, but trying to enjoy the now too. It's not use wasting your conscious life living in the past or the future!
