Not Blogging? Create A New Project (How My Abstract Mosno Brain Works)

It has dawned on me a few moments ago that I have not blogged in quit sometime, because I have not put it in my calendar to do so, and I thought to myself "Why haven't I put it on my calendar?", and it hit me. Projects.

Yup, I tend to do more blogging when I'm working on creative projects, which makes sense. I of course did a LOT of blogging when I was working on "NOVELLA", and I loved every bit of it.
A while back I was posting about The FAWM EP (now called Enchanting Paramnesia), which is still happening with the talented Joe Scala who just finished his 3rd FAWM challenge, way to go dude.

Earlier today I was reading this awesome post by my other talented friend Jon Patton of Midway Fair, it chronicles the process he took to writing the freshly released to bandcamp album "No Fortunes". He wrote, recorded, & produced the entire 14 track album in the 28 days of February. So yea, my friends are kind of Bad-Ass when it comes to creativity.
So this has sparked my creative spirits, and they are now impatient, just like me.

It is no secret I have an on-going love affair with some peculiar things, which are my biggest inspirations for my songwriting, they are "Autumn, Desert, & The Moon" (AD&M).
Earlier this year, I wrote an epic love poem, 777 words about those lovely three. I have not actually publicized the poem, but a few of my dear friends did get to read the finished poem, and I've gotten nothing but lovely feedback about it.

NOW, there are two more phases that I need to do, to feel complete with this mission.
Compose music for each one of the 3 sections of the poem
Have artwork done for said 3 sections.
I've already spoken with my lovely talented Iranian artist Gela, who is excited and agreed to do the artwork for this poem.

Which leaves (hehehe leaves) the composition part, and this is where my creativity will happen.
For you see, I have also been wanting to use more guitar effects, and atmospheric sounds, but I have been looking at it the wrong way. Since I'm a performing artist, almost everything comes down to "How the hell will I perform this live??"
Well, I don't think AD&M is supposed to be performed live, its more of an audio/image/poetry project, so with that decision in mind, it actually got me more excited about being experimental with my music making, which means...more blogging, yay.

And THAT ladies and gentleman is how my abstract Mosno brain works.
Its starts off with a simple "Hey, why aren't you blogging?" and ends with "Let me turn this epic love poem into a full blown art project, so that I can have something to blog about".

Needless to say, I would very much love your support to help make this project happen, you can do this by becoming a Zoo Keeper of goatFISH (because we are working on a new album as well), and you will get the goodies that are already waiting for you, plus the new goodies that are on the way.

Be safe, and embrace the awesome.

Selenophilia

I love it when I learn new words, my new favorite one is Selenophilia.
You have no idea how excited I was to learn that this word existed! It basically means "A Love of the moon", which would make me a Selenophile "(n) a person who loves the moon".
How freakin cool is that!!?

I have always had a healthy obsession with the moon, I never knew why, and I never questioned it. I've just always found comfort in sitting or standing, and stare at the moon. It always clams me down.
In my desert culture, the Moon is used as a symbol of beauty many times, and as you may ha
ve heard in many of my songs, I use the moon quite often in my writing.

The cool thing is, I learned about this word, just as I had finished writing a new song called "Sahara Moon", of course. So this new exciting discovery lead me down a moonlight rabbit hole, and now I'm working on a 5 song EP of love songs that are moon themed.
Needless to say the word "Selenophilia" makes it …

Bandcamp \\ vs // Patreon

As you may have heard, Bandcamp has recently launched a "Subscription" service for their artist and their supporters. The main idea is for fans/supports of an artist, would "Subscribe" to him/her. By doing so the supporter would pay a monthly charge to the artist through Bandcamp, and in return they get 1st dibs on new songs, and even exclusive material.
The new music is automatically ready for streaming on your Bandcamp App, and you would even have the option to download it if you like. There is even an option to give Subscribers a discount on other merch, and you can of course make your whole back catalog available as well.

Patreon has been doing a similar thing for a while now, but with Patreon its open for more than just music. Its for "Artists" in general. And I have to say, I do tend to find more Webcomic and Digital Artists using Patreon. I also see a lot of Video content creators on there as well, and some "Audio" artist.

I'm sure th…

Closer to the moon

Great News friends.
 I can officially say, that I have finished recording my "Lunaverse" album, woho. It took a while and I apologize, but a few things have come up on the way. I moved resting palces (but still in Baltimore area), I co-produced Janice B.'s latest album "Mantra" with Maurice of StinkyFace Music, I'm also learning some new Tech skills, like how to program in Python, and Web Development for a side project I'm working on.

Also I think I like this image to be used in some way for the album.
Its an photo taken of the Supermoon, from Baltimore, by my good friend Rob Hinkal of ilyAIMY , which I think appropriate since this moon album was created in Baltimore, it'll be a full circle type of thing.

Alright, I just wanted to share the good news with you all.
I'll be back soon with more updated.
Big hugs, and much love.


When you have a chance, go be creative today.
Mosno.
