my dolls need a song …

September 29, 2022

My home and studio are small and making music and recording in some sort of privacy for me and my family would be impossible unless I have audio recording equipment for my laptop and my electronic piano.  So, with that and an app for my phone, I am,  potentially able to layer short and vibrant sounds and patterns, to complement my films.

I would like to say that there is a happy ending to all this and there will ‘one day’. Not only do I have a box of ‘sound’ making tools I find myself relearning to play the piano and learning to play the ukulele. The piano has alwaysbeen in my home since my youngest child learned to play.  The ukulele happened to be unused in the eldest’s house and begged to be played rather than gather dust. 

So, while my films remain silent, I have come out of the doldrums, even if the world of music is not as I expected.  The piano playing is improving day be day, but the ukulele is a monster with whom I wrestle daily.  Perhaps, the challenge will give me subject matter for my blog, or the post writing might give me respite from the utter disharmony I have in my life at the moment.
