I’ve been inspired by Apple’s recent push to inspire creativity, among the meek and broken of spirit, by providing guides to creative projects using the tools that come free with an iPad. I’ve been playing with Garage Band and Apple loops to provide the basis for tunes, which are then combined with cleaned and edited archive recordings of people who are :-
a) Brilliant, and
b) Dead, so unable to be offended by their works being adulterated by me.
I’m still having fun with it, so here’s another …
My first attempt at Electro Blues, so please don’t be too unkind.
Vocals courtesy (Unknown to her) of the mighty Memphis Minnie, most of the music knife and forked from Apple Loops.
I have just released my new album Contrarian to CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon MP3 and lots of streaming sites such as Spotify.
There is a page here on jon moncrieff.com where you can find links and a CD Baby player to listen to short samples, before inevitably buying copies for self and friends.
After a long gap, I’m starting to upload some new music for distribution. I’ve put a taster of one of the louder tracks on Soundcloud.
I wish you all a happy, prosperous, healthy and peaceful new year.
Another joke pinched from the Motley Fool
Q ‘What’s your greatest weakness?’
A ‘Answering the semantics of a question but ignoring the pragmatics’
Q ‘Could you give me an example?’
A ‘Yes I could’
“I have an inferiority complex, but it’s not a very good one.”
