Welcome to SurfacedMusic!
If you are passionate about writing, recording and mixing music, you've come to the right place!
While I am not a music professional, music has always been a big part of my life and I have been writing, recording and mixing my own pieces for well over a decade now.
There are 3 main reasons I have created this blog:
1. As my creative outlet.
I have large amounts of ideas, fragments, unfinished songs that got stuck somewhere between inception and mastering, lying around and I want to have a place to gather them, share them with other people and get some feedback to - hopefully - gain more motivation to complete them.
2. To share knowledge.
To teach and learn (there's plenty of stuff I'm still having trouble with) about song writing, recording, mixing and the general music creation process with other musicians.
3. To collaborate.
I consider myself a fairly good guitarist/pianist/drummer, but I am not that great at the bass guitar or with vocals. I will post 'collaboration' posts on this blog where I will put up a song (or parts of a song), disassembled into individual instrument tracks, for other artists to download, modify, remix, put their own ideas, melodies, vocals over and submit back to me.
My plan is to regularly update this blog with my own music, random tutorials, collaboration posts or general music experiments for others to enjoy, learn from, or give feedback on.
Today's post is going to be a collaboration post
Here is the current version of the song!
Feel free to send me any feedback on the song so far, what you like, what you don't like. I am always open to suggestions
In order for you to participate in this collaboration, you can download the individual instrument tracks here:
Simply right click the links to download the mp3 files. Feel free to remix the tracks, add instruments, add vocals, redo instruments, add whole new sections, anything really, and send them back to me so I can post them online on this website for others to hear!
I myself will continue to work on this song and I already have a few good ideas, but I am curious what other artists can make of the material I have so far.
Again, welcome to SurfacedMusic and I hope you will enjoy this blog!
