Hi, hope you are all splendid, here’s a gathering of my recent news:
(BTW follow me on Twitter for more extra bits… https://twitter.com/PaaliaqMusic)
1: ‘The Music I Make’ is a brand NEW promo video, which includes NEW music. Enjoy.
2: ‘Trinkets’ – I am putting out a series of NEW song previews at the moment, called ‘Trinkets’ – and here’s a playlist of the first 10 – I have so much new music to release, I hope you will enjoy hearing some of it here 🙂
3: !!! I will be interviewed for the podcast ‘Eclectrocasts’ in March!
Eclectrocasts is a brilliant show that features interviews and music of indie artists of a broad range of genres. It is operated by Jeff Kirn (Isotherme) and Kees de Groot (Groovehare). The artists interviewed generally make and produce their music from home studios without external support or sponsors.
More on that as it happens… but you can check out their great work here: http://www.eclectrocasts.com/
4: I have 2 NEW TRACKS out now – Cadence and Quench. Enjoy!
A few words I wrote today about Quench:
“I love the word Quench. It relates so powerfully to such deep, and so often, controlling desires in us, and the urge to satisfy our needs.
It was important to me that the lead instrument had a wavering sound, that it shifted, wasn’t settled, in control, perfectly in-tune. For me, it reflects authenticity, vulnerability, imperfections… Like in life, trying to keep to the ‘tune’, whilst sometimes fighting against distorted thinking and doubt.
The harsh, overblown drums initially contain all this ‘messiness’, which then crosses over into the horn sound.
For me this is how creativity works – translating emotions into different forms. As the song says – “The objects are still there, but in another dimension.”
(This is also the feeling behind the wavering, analog sounds of ‘Heights’.)
Of course, apart from all that it just sounds good to me 🙂 ”
5: Please VOTE for ‘The Lift’ on Awardeo. I made the music for ‘The Lift’ – a wonderful new short film by my friend Alexander Murillo. I’m honoured to be a part of his work and hope you enjoy this warm, heartfelt and compassionate documentary.
