Whilst rummaging through old hard drives, cd and dvd disks, I stumbled across something that was probably my first ‘proper’ attempt to create a piece of meaningful music by myself. It’s from 2003, not long after I had lost my Mother and was living in Spain feeling that my life at the time was playing itself out, without me having any sense of control.
Hearing it for the first time in years, it’s thrown me straight back to the moment I made it. I know I used an early version of Reason, with a few samples and, oddly for me, my dodgy vocal via a dodgy mic.
I won’t treat it as a finished work… it’s very muffled and missing something… so not bothering with a 96kbps version, but thought I would share it because its heart was (and still is) in the right place.
