Yeah get creative!
Here is something to get you started (click pic):
A strange thing happened. I was entering my Apra performances into their website, it takes ages but it gives me a nice perspective of work done and a bit of dosh. Here's the weird bit; normally at this time of the there are no payments. I looked at my reports and there was a $300 deposit from the US Apra for a track I wrote eight years ago. Now that I'm getting serious online it made me think about investing more time into publishing, soundtracks. kinda boring, but cool.
I am now the producer/editor of the OCAU podcast. This will enable me to hone my skills and develop a style. It's great to be involved in such an alive web community. I'm working on a new theme for their games reviews. with heaps of old school C64 and Nintendo sounds. Great fun.
On a slightly personal note, my girlfriend, Sig has extended her contract as a doctor in Perth. This is really cool. I like the idea of getting my stuff together enough to do some gigs or wk in Europe (she is Austrian) by the time she has to leave. I have so many friends over there. Hi to Torb, Andy, Geza, Brian, Marty, Tanya & Lucas, Michaela..heaps of really good friends.
I'm still waiting for MC Optamus (Scott from Downside) to get his rap together for this collab with MC Killermatic. My D&B remix is phat and heavy. We are also working on a new groove. We are using heaps of geek tech terms and making them cool, taking them out of context. I'm cutting up the beats and bleeps in sync with the rap. It's all in the details.
I'll have to work out how to post up audio, so you can check the works in progress.
