News to Me, Friday the 13th!

Ran out of time, but there was so much news today!

The Castle of Otranto

This is regarded as the first “Gothic novel” of terror and suspense. I had trouble restraining my laughter all through.

Stokesauce 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Listeners of the Stokesauce Radio show you will be familiar with some of the interesting ideas and music I’ve been sharing between songs.

In episode twelve of the Stokesauce Radio Show, I tell a story about how much more productive I’ve become since I dropped my phone into the ocean. Yeah I’ve been without a phone for nearly two weeks and it’s been amazing

In episode eleven I speak of the current live music in my neighbourhood about what it is and what it could be. I share great music and some other ideas. I tell more stories about my music releases.

In episode 10 I speak about recording trumpet, relaxing at the beach. Some thoughts about using time well. How could you possibly go wrong with the sorts of music you’ll hear on the SSRS?

In episode 9 of the SSRS I’ve been helping my friends with their various productions, thoughts about emulated synthesizers and the importance of routine. More class A music and my thoughts about “Later with Jools Holland”.

In episode 8 * 2021-06-08 I share thoughts about Art, a visit over to the next village, making music, being busy or not busy! my AKAI synth/midi controller, and as usual, we let’s get into some music.

Sign up if you want to stay in touch, it will be Infrequent notes about art, music and literature. I produce and compose music, and Stoke Sauce is a way of documenting my journey, things I’m learning about and want to share with friends.
