I’ve had a great time on this second patch of four days at Paper Mountain. I had a bunch of Life Stuff and a weeks’ holiday down south in between last time I was here and now, which meant that although I’d planned to do a bunch more work on the songs that made upContinue reading “Things Get Weird With Tomás Ford”
How do you go from drag mime to this? To be honest I can’t consciously pinpoint the exact trajectory. After a slow start, I decided that when you can’t generate something from within, you can generate it from without – all roads lead to Rome after all. I started by shopping. After trying on aContinue reading “What is a response”
You have to be in the mood to make art. Don’t believe all those people that say “Oh you just have to chip away at it”. Sometimes nothing will come, and you just have to accept that. Sometimes that’s ok, and that is all you need to suddenly have everything come at once. On theContinue reading “It’s all coming back”

I have newContinue reading “cr0nes: meditations on clouds – bandcamp and youtube”
