It´s sometimes funny that friends ask why I have stopped playing music or taking photographs. My reply, with a slightly confused look, is always “ I haven´t, why do you think that”? The usual reply is that they haven´t seen any posts of mine on social media.
It sometimes gets to me the immense pressure in the arts world to constantly show your work on these social media sites and be judged by the amount of likes you have. Surely the nice thing about these platforms is you have the world at your fingertips to listen, look at, like whatever you want… or even better…to see it in reality.
Anyway, back to the point (rant over). I was getting messages on my Youtube Music Channel asking why I don´t record tunes anymore, and although I have been playing a lot this year (recording and touring) I let the social media stuff slide…. but the amount of really nice comments recently has given me a new wave of energy to get going again. So thanks to all the guys who have supported these saxophone videos. I´m posting it on here because I also filmed it all myself, using Sony cameras and remotes. As usual, all edited using Logic Pro (audio) and FCPX (video).
Hope you like it , and there are lots more here !
