Music is a natural and supernatural aural pleasure that can lift your spirit higher than a souring bird - its just real good wigging out to your favourite tune or live music. It's a totally free expressive art form that can liberate an individual from the normalness that life can be sometimes.
Playing live in a summer meadow to a chilled out crowd of mates - yup bit of hippy thing going on . Growing up in the 70s gave me a bit of an ecletic taste for all things 60s 70s and then post Punk. So sonically or personally thats the where i'd imagine - maybe a kinda modernised version of Floyd playing at the ampitheatre in Pompei .... or some rustic kinda place in the sun.
Disuade people from believing first hand what politicians / media machine churn out on a daily basis which can inevitably influence your perspective on things.
Chirpy Cheep Cheep or Slade's Coz i Love You ?
Too many - stuck in a 60's time vortex . OK i lke Kraftwerk, The Stranglers, Talking Heads, Cream, The Who, Beatles Stones Bowie Bolan Lou Reed and a bit of reggae.
My favourite artist always always make me want to try and emulate a sound or vibe.
Music is freedom - happiness -sadness - melancoly . Hopefully if I could lift someones spirit HIGHER and make them want to dance. That would be fab.
After nervousness . Giddy excited and self aware.
It's good - lets you put out your stuff to other musos and you get to hear other aspiring artists new stuff.
Gear paralysis - spending too much time trying to get bits of kit to talking to one another in some sensible order.I like midi gear -Its great when your on top of it but hell when you are tring to programme gear and you keep making basic mistake you dont want.
Love watching live music, open mics pubs etc., try to get to see it as much as possible
ability to know what works and what doesnt
Oh Sees - Moon Duo - Fat White Family - Subway Mod of course.
