    Tinnitus seems to be a warning system too. If it gets louder take care.

    Adventure day for me means to make the most out of it: adventure, travelling, having intelligent fun (with a mouse), taking pics and telling a story with the pics. I need to be creative.

    My camera sensor is okay. I shouldn't use the electronic shutter if there is artificial light. Next time I'll choose the mechanical one. The new Jazz pics on flickr are somewhere in the middle in between. I reworked older ones and they therefore appear on top.

    When we tell each other things about ourselves the reply often is: like me. Another detail: it seems to me that my filters are not too strong: I receive lots of information, through my ears, my eyes and concerning feelings. One way to deal with it is being creative, I guess. Fortunately I'm a kind of information junkie. As long as it's the right kind of information it's okay.

    Question: are you Gwendolyn Skryfet. I like the songs. Totally over the top.

    Mojo and Gosig II

    On Sunday I made pics of a jazz concert (Clare Vetter Trio). They came out beautifully. Very poetic. I uploaded them later here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rainer_eric
    Unfortunately the sensor of the camera sometimes does not work properly: on a few pics you can see lines in the background.

    Like you I didn't know at first how to deal with the uvumi site. I opened my account to be able to download a Heinali song (“When We Were Gods”), which I couldn't find anywhere else. I then discovered his track “To Live” :-)).

    Mojo and Gosig I
    Left by Rainer Eric, on May 23, 2017 - 9:26
    We are quite similar :-) I have ear problems too, but to a smaller degree: Tinnitus due to ovewrwork. Usually I do not realise it. Hyper-acute hearing I came across in two situations. When I longed to listen to a CD and when I finally got it it often sounded excellent. Later on I hear much less details. The hearing mode went back to normal. And I guess when I'm exhausted noise I don't like is far too much for me. Especially the noise of cars. I hate it.

    Mojo changed your life and Gosig changed mine. All this uploading pics routine is more or less his “fault”. He even introduced the adventure day because he is adventurous: choosing a village that is interesting and then we go there early in the morning. Important: only check shortly, if it's a good place to go. The more you know the less it will be an adventure. And then we explore the place. Without a map.

    I found out two more things about the soundtrack: often it's hymn like and like spiritual music. That makes it overwhelming.

    What adds to the hypnotic effect: the music often is very rhythmic and forward driving. It carries you with it. :-)

    You wrote that your songs write themselves. That's what happens when I'm writing and happened when I painted. Again: I let the brain do the work. I only have to enable it.

    If you have a look at today's pics (21.05.) of mine you will see one of my mice (Gosig) in the theatre. Go for the whiskers :-)

    As kids we often had rescued baby blackbirds. Grown up one flew onto my shoulder when I came back from school. Another, who couldn't fly, jumped up in his cage happy to see me. I love blackbirds. And they “sing” beautifully. Great concert early in the morning.

    I'm a wee bit confused again. There is a Joanne Gabriel site and a JG site. Where shall I reply?

    I nearly finished to listen to all the tracks of mojo's work. His singing is rich in variety as is the music. It seems that ten different musicians accompanied him: a punk, a hard rocker, someone with a background in classical music. You name it. There is lots of avant-garde going on. Again: a love for the interesting detail, excellent craftsmanship, an abundance of ideas and your great sense of humour.

    In between I know where the hypnotic effect comes from: at least for me. It's a soundtrack for one story. So there is cohesion. Very strong through the reappearing (chorus like) singing, through reappearing motifs and melodies that belong together. And it's very emotional … and about three hours long. Because I like it I easily immerse. And sometimes it's hard to turn off the CD player. Different effect with music I can't stand (like in a supermarket): I better flee. It makes me nuts.
    I feel bad if the surrounding noise is too loud or if too many people close to me speak all at the same time. It's hard or not possible for me to separate the different voices. A nightmare.

    Wall to wall

    Good idea, using each others wall so that the new messages are always on top. Today I listened to your soundtrack part I and II for hours. I always do that with new music. It's been a real listening adventure and left me quite hypnotized. I extented my comments on bandcamp, knowing your tracks better now. I also started to check the rich output of mojo the cat. Extremely well done. And it shows that you have a great sense of humor: "catcore", "pawgaze", "catnip paranoia", "bossing the district around". I like that.

    Not to forget: I used the google translator for a part of the travel adventure story to check the result. Interesting. The style is clumsy. And some sentences are nonsense. Good idea for a story. A man and a woman, living in different countries, communicate only with translated texts. Total confusion :-)

    Your music reminds me a bit of M83, which is not a bad thing.

    How come every single the picture of you is blurry?

      Sorry for the late answer, and thanks for listening :)
      You are not the first to make this comparison, so I guess I'll have to check their stuff.
      Concerning the pics : I don't know, I like to have blurry pics for this page. Sharp ones usually go on my other profile. I'm a little schizophrenic with my musician profiles :)
