Music Goals 2018

Postby friendship » Sat Jan 06, 2018 12:05 pm

What would you like to do in 2018? What kind of music would you like to play/learn? What do you want to write, if you write? Is there a band you'd like to play in? What do you want for your current band, if you have one, to achieve?

I finished a three album genre project last year and now I'm not sure what to do, so I think I want to get back to the basics and focus on fundamentals. I put my electric guitars in their cases and put new strings on my classical. I have no idea what music will come from this, but I'm hoping by harnessing my ki the Trve Path forward will reveal itself.

Definitely respect the back to basics approach! :thumb:

As for me, lots!

- Release more from my solo project (future music will probably be more electronic-y). I have some tunes that are mostly written and partly recorded so I really want to get back to those, finish them and add more probably.

- progress with internet metal band (this has been slow going due to the hassles of internet banditry but I'd like to get something down).

- play shows and record with one or both of my IRL bands.

- release a split with a mysterious other ILFer??


Other than bands and recording I want to improve my bass playing fundamentals again and continue re-learning how to read/write music.

- Record a new iRerror album with Kent dearest.
- Play a couple of gigs.
- Keep on minimalizing my setup, cut excess fat.
- Watch the cult of Oscillo grow into a crazed internet phenomenon.

Just to play, write and record at least semi-regularly this year. Last year was pretty much a hiatus from music for me, for the most part. We had our big move in January, all my gear was in storage in another state until late spring, then it was packed in boxes, then we had a new baby and I had a new job...and I just didn't really play that much at all for 2017. I jammed with other people 3 times (different people each time), I played for 5-10 minutes at a time here and there. I never wrote anything to speak of, didn't record any new gear demos, which I was doing a lot of in previous years.

Been planning this year for a while now.
Time to actually start playing shows on my own and to stop finding a billion excuses not to. If anyone in this part of the world/Michigan/NY wants to do something, lmk.
Otherwise, finish writing my next album and at least make a good start on recording it. It's a two piece album so if I can get the first and most difficult half of recording out of the way this year, that would be great.
And finally, to properly learn how to read sheet music in a way that doesn't take me forever.

Repair and hook my assorted obsolete gear up for the first time in like 2 years and make the neighbors across the street leave me weird McChurch DVDs in the mailbox again.

Forge a regular musical partnership with somebody. Write more pieces/songs. Play live a bunch. Deepen my understanding of polyrhthms and harmony. Record more.

i left the full time band i had been in for the past six years as of the end of 2017.
i'm actually looking forward to playing live *less* this year.
i'm also hoping to get some less formal (as in, not necessarily practicing multiple times a week) projects in motion.
I like the idea of being more selective & more adaptable, musically.

basically, i'm sick of doing the same thing all the time & want some new musical adventures (as long as they don't take over my life).

Being in a band for 6 years and only putting out 5 songs has got to be pretty taxing, but at least those 5 songs were fucking killer :thumb:

Learn more theory so I can more effectively make noise.

Write some less noisy music.

Play shows and record with my noisy band.

Learn to yell into a mic for a half hour without blowing out my voice.
