A Track A Day


Or for some social media #atrackaday

Introducing my New Year’s good intentions, after a holiday period of coughs and splutters, even though George Arnett in the Guardian article a few years ago found that 66% of resolutions last less than a month and 86% don’t last the year. My aim is to post a new track each day during 2018 and I’m now on day 9 (started early).

During my housebound weeks I listened to music and found lots of it, many pieces that I had composed during the past few years and then stored, suppressing all those creative ideas to complete the PhD now doesn’t seem worth it. Now it has been rediscovered the obvious action is off the hard drive and into the ether so you can give it a listen and decide for yourself rather than just reading about it in the blogs.

I hope some of the music resonates with you in some way, there are always percussion sounds on much of what I produce, and there may be some surprises in there as well. The more complete tracks will be available to listen to at https://urbanskyline.bandcamp.com/

The mainly MIDI versions will be posted on https://soundcloud.com/music-54-4/

And there will be some tracks with film that you can access at https://www.youtube.com/user/DDoDV

Any sheet music to go with the tracks will be available on https://payhip.com/prbpnews (priced in £s) and https://sellfy.com/prbpnews (priced in $s)


Hope you all have a happy listening year and today’s track is Within The Glass Copper Skin from Urban Music https://urbanskyline.bandcamp.com/album/urban-music
