Partner in crime Daniel Hulbert came to the party with a couple of suggestions, but the one that captured my imagination was one he had along the lines of an idea I had been toying with myself. Daniel suggested a penrose triangle.
Of course, this would have been a bit of a challenge to make, given that it is an impossible object. But I knew what he was driving at!
I've got the electronics bug! I'm trying to think of some projects to do with my boy so any suggestions greatly received. Anything music-related is a strong candidate. I've bought a couple of kits and parts for projects and I'm just waiting for things to arrive before I take the plunge.
The only problem I have is that I've never done anything like this before, so I'm really starting off from nothing. I'll share my successes and disasters on the blog for you, as and when I get there.
One thing that's put me off in the past is that I'm colour-blind. I wonder if it's going to beat me again? NEVER!
The picture above show a kit for an optical theremin. Oh yes, I can feel some sci-fi-inspired music coming! Ha ha. I do hope that I can build the bloody thing and get it to work!
The music collaboration is moving along. I've managed to create about a thousand loose ends that all need tying up! :-D
I can't wait to share some of the songs with you. The song above is my a very talented musician called Martin Kirwan who I'm hoping will be appearing on some of the songs. Watch this space!
Did you hear me mention "loose ends" a second ago? Yeah, I can't stop myself. I'm scared to pick up my guitar at the moment because every time I do I end up writing another song. It only happened again this morning. Here's me capturing "Lonesome Grave" before I forgot it. I'm experimenting with some punk-western vocals that won't be to everyone's taste. I love the melody and I almost get the words right .
I don't even want to talk about this picture. It's the closest I'm getting to breakdancing at the moment...
