8 Months later here’s another one! Yeah, I’m not great at sticking to new projects.
I must say it’s been a hectic time, been very busy with work and the world just seems to get crazier. We’re currently still in the mad throws of the Brexit nonsense, I went on the ‘Put it to the people’ march a week or two ago, it was massive, they say a million (or much more, or much less – because that’s the way the world is now) people were on the streets. I marched for 6 hours and still didn’t even get to Trafalgar Square, let alone parliament. It felt good to be surrounded by people who feel the same way as you, it felt like I got my old country back for a few hours and really lifted my spirits.
Needless to say, the whole thing is a mess. I genuinely fear what the country is becoming and I hope it gets put back to the people so we can stop it doing anymore damage to ourselves, but it’s hard to make predictions. The world is moving extremely fast at the moment. Either way I think there’ll be relief for the whole country once something has finally happened, one way or the other.
In other news, I’m starting a new project (hopefully it’ll go better than keeping an up to date blog). I’m going to start building some synths and various electronic instruments. My soldering isn’t amazing, nor is my electronics knowhow, I know a few things about synths but that’s part of the aim of the project, to learn as I do. As Modular Synthesizers can cost big bucks and inspired by Look Mum No Computer I’m going to just build some stuff with cheap parts and try to reuse unwanted things! I’ll try and blog about it soon once I’ve actually built something that works. I promise.
