From a musical point of view, I’m hoping 2016 will be a bit more productive than 2015 was for me. I currently have ongoing projects which may or may not see the light of day, I hope these things come together more so in the first half of the year. I’m planning on spending more time working with the ipad – using Auria Pro, Korg Gadget, Tonestack etc.
On a wider orbit, I hope for change in the future.
Real change is on the way methinks. Our politicians (almost exclusively) are not representing us, they seem to be more answerable to corporate influence than they are to us. The media is presenting us with their very skewed version of the world. It seems to me that there are a lot of people in the worlds of politics and the media who are hell-bent on trying to make us believe in what they want us to be believe in. Personally, I don’t think that real change will come from the world of politics anymore, I think it may well be more of a generational thing – something that will happen more gradually.
The current overall view on things from the ‘powers that be’ (who very much influence politics and the media) is increasingly myopic and they certainly don’t appear to be considering things in any kind of longer term, which will be damaging for all of us in many ways, I feel.
Anyway, enough of my ‘rant-let’, happy new year !
