Its a bit difficult to explain, but I have what I think is some kind of hyperacusis or hyper-sensitivity amongst other problems and one of my main problems aside from surviving over the years has been finding peace enough to work undisturbed. Really little noises bother me too much and really put me off. It’s quite annoying actually, I think its been heightened by years of wearing earplugs. Hey ho, anyway after about 5 years of scouring the world for a place that nobody will bother me in I finally found a place that is semi-suitable for creative work. Its expensive and I can’t afford it so I started a Patreon, an equipment fundraiser and a synch company (profits go to equipment fundraiser) to get it all going! Surely some of this has got to work!
I cant be arsed to go into detail cos it needs a book to fully summarise it all but I do want to say that I have searched for many years to find the right place to work and this is the only one that ever slightly conformed to requirements. During this time I sold some stuff to survive and as I outlined in an earlier post which was so rambly I deleted it I had to leave a lot of shit in central America. I am now without a soundcard and mic but I have managed to secure a mixing desk which is a lot of the battle. I need that clarity and working style of a desk but I am still a ways from having a decent working system.
So I have this huge body of work and I will put forward ideas into the Patreon (at least) one a month. Once the fundraiser is done I will be able to mix the ideas to a high standard. This is the only way I can get all this stuff together bit by bit as my ideas are always too big for my belly. I shall achieve an album, with a little help from the internets, maybe a bit of work through film sound and some other musicians and an awesome thing is possible.
I am also hoping I will meet other musicians on the way and am looking for a bunch of people to work with. here goes nothin…
