Good Morning! I know it’s monday morning, back to work after the lovely weather here in the UK but don’t worry I’ve got another tune to share with you all.
We’ve all got out of our minds, where we feel strongly about someone, emotions goes wild and makes us do crazy things. “Touch” by Shura is a perfect example of showing this. We know it’s wrong but something it feels right, in a weird way. But it’s just not the lyrics that carry the song, it’s the nice chill, happy, electro beats in the background that puts a smile on my face.
Enjoy and have a good Monday everyone!
Most people don’t know that I used to DJ in some clubs, which didn’t last long, or at house parties back in my hometown, years ago. I never did it for the money and wanted to seek this disillusioned fame like most people did, maybe still do now but what I loved about it being in a room of people you don’t have any connection with, just playing music that we all loved and feed off each others energy around us. The state of mind that left our real world troubles behind for a moment before Monday came around.
Not only that and call me weirdo but I love the feel of vinyls! Call me old skool but it was just something about it, that you were touching music and creating a physical effect when rewinding a record back than having a machine do it all for you. The best way I could describe is how stop-motion animators prefer animating a character because of the physical movements comparing to an 3D animator using Maya, who does it all digitally. Interestingly, stop motion animators sometimes leave a mark, they own identity on the model, kind of the same way but not completely as you can leave a finger print mark on a vinyl. It was also about the artwork that I just loved.

Music is a powerful art tool that we use to get us motivated at the GYM, enjoy the fun times with friends or to simply reflect our emotions. The same tool is apply in film and games to let the audience experience different emotions through out their journey within the medium.
I’m going to start something a bit different from how I ran my previous blog and share the kind of music that I listen to in my everyday life; While I’m animating, drawing, thinking, etc.
So to kick this off, I found this amazing song by Galimatias & Sorrow – Subside.
Such a beautiful tune, enjoy.
