monster mash

so is there anything worth reporting in the world of Hunchbakk this week?


i have been faced with frustration everytime i try and get any ideas moving, but i'll keep coming back to the music i'm making and with any luck i'll have something to share with you guys...

anyone paying any attention will have noticed the fact that the SoundArt series seems to have ground to an abysmal halt but it is something i am still toiling on, and is fast proving to be a real sore point. SoundArt 7 is next in line and particular care is being paid to it in order to get it just right, but getting it just right only seems to be the start of my problems with it...

not being able to do things the easy way means i try it the hard way and still get it wrong, or maybe both are the wrong way, or maybe i haven't actually figured the right way just yet, but either way, whenever i set aside time to knuckle down it only results in two hours staring at the computer screen and achieving nothing. and yet other times i have a little mess around and seem to have progressed before it falls apart again

but it is heading in the right direction, it is just taking longer than expected

another idea likely to cause me grief is another christmas single, i'll make no promises that this shall ever be completed in time or even see the light of day but the intention is there

and there is another side-project that is nearing completion that may very well be worth unveiling in the near future... we'll see...

but also of relevance is the triumphant return of Bubblegum Stomp last weekend, embracing the chance to dress up and get drunk and play loud music to a receptive crowd

we've DJed at parties that have sometimes been a bit hit and miss but this time we were realy able to get stuck in to the night and it makes it all worth it to have people dancing and appreciating the effort being made... and it goes both ways, the more up for it a crowd is, the more you feel that you need to give them as DJs

and considering out of the three DJs sharing the decks, one tired and jetlagged DJ brought no CDs at all, another brought just one CD and the other (me!) brought plenty it could have all gone horribly wrong but instead it couldn't have possibly gone better, resulting in a messy night of face paints, too much alcohol, pitched up tracks and a drunken attempt by a hall full of people to do the Thriller dance

and after all that excitement we're planning our costumes for the New Year's Eve party!
