Rudiments – The Basics of Happiness

As you may be aware, I am a recording artist, and have been writing, composing and producing my own original music since I was about 16. Today, I’m… older. I have a pile of unfinished projects, albums and scratch ideas. I have notes for some cool music videos. There is plenty of evidence on several hard drives that ideas and inspirations were never in short supply, but the ridiculous amount of time that began to fill in between releasing products and creations into the world has grown significantly.

Elements of Desire

When I was young, I had a dream of performing my music in front of a sea of people. I may have been about 12 years old. It was just me, under a spotlight, holding a guitar, a microphone was on a stand in front of me. I don’t know what song I may have been about to sing, but it felt good to be there.

Why We Write

It feels true to me that we write primarily for ourselves, whether it’s poetry, prose, a script for stage or screen, lyrics for music or text for commercial copy. We are ultimately the ones to satiate and to fulfil; we will read it (repeatedly), listen to it (a lot), or be subject to its repercussions once released out into the world.
