    By the way, in the spirit of adding things to the mix, I added some vocal harmonies and percussion to the demo below, and I also wrote ANOTHER shorter lyrics-having demo if you'd like

    OK OK I'm finally getting back to you, holy christ I am sorry it has been over 2 months I literally cannot believe myself. I've been super out of it recently what with exams and all and some part of my brain is frighteningly resistance to typing what should be pretty simple messages. ANYWAY. I saw the schedule you have up for your EP, it's cool that you have a proper plan set out, have you got the basics down for all the 5 tracks now? I'm very excited to here them fully fleshed out with all the parts your buddies have thrown in, good luck with all of that. And thanks about my demos, I feel I should get back to digital at some point because I'm far from done with tinkering with synths and effects and all, but songwriting on guitar has felt really organic to me recently. I'm thinking off picking up more instruments to add to the mix too, mainly small scale stuff (I'm thinking ocarina, maybe a thumb piano) and percussion (shakers, maybe a snare drum)

    Hey! I'm mega mega mega sorry I haven't gotten back to you in like a bajillion months, I've been really burned out from exams and I still haven't been able to find the time to reply, but I just wanted to drop you this demo I did recently in case you were interested, it's another attempt at writing lyrics and it's called Convection Current Summer

    Yeah :/ I'm almost as much of a Lapalux fan now as I am a Flylo one (first time I heard this it completely changed how I listen to music), so I really wanted to chat to him in the least fanboyish way possible afterwards. Hopefully he comes back to bristol/bath soon. In any case, flylo was great and it was just a cool day out with some friends in Bristol anyway. This artwork is sick dude! I LOVE the Kevin Shields one. Didn't realise you did your own artwork either, awesome. Also, that final fantasy/Yoshitaka Amano artwork you posted is off the chain jesus christ, I've never even heard of him before.

    Thanks dude. Flylo was siiiick, the sound was pretty terrible. I really wanted to see Lapalux at the afterparty but they last-minute changed his spot to open for Flylo which we didn't know about, so that was lame. Great day overall, plus I got a hi-five from the man himself at the end so hopefully I've absorbed some of his power. Studio art sounds cool, do you have a blog or page or anything with your art on it? would be cool to see. Awesome about the EP, are you putting it out on a label?

    Are you still making music by the way? I remember you released those two tunes and they were wicked.

    Music stuff is going pretty well, I'm just starting to get to the stage where some of my favourite artists are listening/downloading my stuff so I'm just making a ton. Cashmere Cat emailed me! I sent him a tune to see what he thought and he replied with some feedback, which was a real morale booster. And yeah, we should totally get a zippychat going, I keep wondering what ilai, mel and the crowd are up to.

    Hahahaha yeah that's how I felt about music theory, too many rules and standards for me. I realised I appreciate stuff like production quality, textures and atmospheres over more musical stuff (if that makes any sense). That's awesome that you figured out what you're doing though. What is studio art exactly though? I've never heard of that before, sounds neat. I'm doing pretty well, finished my uni work recently which was nice. I got really into Max/msp, I don't know if you've ever used it but it's like a visual audio programming language, and now I'm about to start learning some more programming stuff as a result. Made my first ever video, which I'm pretty proud of considering I've never done anything video-y in my life. Seeing Flylo on friday with some friends, and I got this incredible new album by this dude called Moody Good, which is like post-brostep mixed with Burial-ish 2-step (better than it sounds), so not too bad overall

    Yo dude, how've you been? I downloaded the scrobbler again after not having it for ages so I figured I'd see how everyone's doing on here. How's college so far?

    Thanks about the demo. Recently I've been doing a lot of guitar stuff so I think that's going to be the character of my next EP, and I'm going to try and make it more cohesive in terms of mood this time, since Impressions didn't really have a common thread. Lyrics might help that, I can try and pair up lyrical and musical themes. I really like your demos! You really went balls out with the complexity with the one you linked in your shout, those music theory lessons must be working because I can't imagine writing something with all that rhythmic/tonal nuance and variety for just one instrument, and I especially like those cascading arpeggios at around 30s in. And the one you posted on tumblr is really catchy, I can't wait to hear that one with a full band, and I actually really liked the echoey vocals (plus in truly Cocteau Twins fashion I cannot at all make out the lyrics, A+). Excited to hear later developments!

    Hey man, sorry for the week-long delay, I've been really incapable of keeping myself in check lately (and I have exams starting next week arrrrggggh). It'd be neat to see that Rin drawing in colour, is colour shading radically different from B&W? I'm thinking the KS piece is gonna have to be considerably delayed, if I don't put it out this month (because I wanna do it in the break in between my exams this month but I really shouldn't for obvious reasons), I'll try and catch up with a double/triple bill in June (maybe I can do a miniseries or something). I do really recommend Sora no Woto, it has the feel of a Ghibli film (with hints at a rich mythology/history to boot) and it has a really wonderful cast of characters. The comparison I used to make was that it was like K-On during wartime but really it's a different genre altogether (though there is the Slice of Life parallel)

    It's so cool you like The Tatami Galaxy! That's my favourite anime TV show for sure, it's so stylish and imaginative and the final episode especially is just stunning, I really think it's one of the most creative uses of a TV series format I've seen. Plus I love the soundtrack, that composer did FMA as well, which I still need to watch, but also Sora no Woto which is another favourite of mine, I don't know if you know it, but its soundtrack is beautiful (I would say it's one of my favourite soundtracks but I really haven't heard that many). Oh, and if you're interested I made a new demo recently which I actually have lyrics for, because I know you said you wanted to hear me sing more. It's called We Were Married, ignore the actually lyrical content because that's very much draft form, most of those lines I improvised on the spot and don't mean much (though I do like that "forget-me-nots" line). Anyhow, enjoy

    Hey, sorry for the megalate reply, I actually kinda wanted to reply from Rome but I didn't have time and before and after I was procrastinating like all hell (I feel reeeally bad at having convinced my mum I'm doing more exam prep than I am). Thanks for your comments on the KS piece, it might not be done for the end of April since I should really prioritise exams right now but we'll see. And yeah, Parity Jam's a classic, I think that was actually made by the dev team. Your fanart was way cool by the way. Rome was fun, I didn't take many photos myself because I don't have a good camera but I'll try and link you the ones my parents took once I get a hold of them. I didn't feel all that well (face was dry, feverish) and it was a bit stressful what with exam pressure on top of familial arguments and kinda homesickness, but it was a really cool place and it's chock full of gorgeous architecture and art, you could spend months exploring it

    Is EVA good though? I'll watch it after Game of Thrones!

    OK, the Hospitality review is official DONE. Still need to work up a draft on the KS soundtrack, I'm thinking it'll be the most personal of the 3 so far, partly because I have an emotional attachment to the game itself and also because it was part of what encouraged me to make my own music. I don't know if it'll be ready for publishing by the end of this break, I really am supposed to be using it for studying though procrastination is winning so far, but hopefully I'll still be able to meet the post-per-month quota. I'll add Four Calendar Cafe to the list then, I've heard that Treasure is their other classic too but I'll go on your advice.
