[Very little to report in my real life, save that the Good Vibrations Festival is coming up this Saturday, though truth be told I'm really not very excited]
In Creative News: Struck on a satisfying name for the new song collection: ‘The Light-Room’.
The Origin of The Name: I have a large bedroom with one whole side consisting of glass sliding doors, with canvas-like gauzy shades. So when the shades are down and the sun is setting, for about 10 minutes, when the sun is at a specific angle, my room is just brimming up with this soft afternoon light. Not the bulk, but the best, of my songs get written in this little piece of time – between the heat of the day and just before the sun goes down further and it gets dark.
And on the subject of The Light-Room I’ve written its first song. Its a strange one called ‘The Death of a Song-Smith’. Its one of the most deeply personal songs I’ve written in years and probably one of the darkest and yet, strangely enough, written at a time when I’m really quite happy. So its a bit of a sub-conscious mystery?
