  1. Of course, HoboSage, it all depends on how loud you're playing
  2. Hi Ken! Yes, I'm getting closer now, it's a bit tricky in that small space I've got for my studio but you have to do the best of your situation I studied to become a sound designer a couple of years ago and then we learned a lot about these things. After that, I've been educating musicians in college and one of the classes were acoustic treatments... I've found the best way to learn something is to teach others!
  3. This year I've promised to release my 2nd album and since I do all the mixing/mastering down the basement I have to do something about the acoustic environment. I just wanted to share the work progress with you. Feel free to share your thoughts about it!! I've started in the front by building 2 decent bass traps that work really well to absorb a wide range of frequencies according to the LE/DE principals. I know, the fabric could be nicer but that's what I had Noted: Never fill the traps with too much mineral wool when you do these types of bass traps.
  4. Haha!! It's just me trying to get in contact with people thru my website. Just think that's a cool way to communicate with one and other I've got songs up on youtube and Spotify as well https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChb23KrUeer2titbNZvXrlQ Cheers!!
  5. Thanks, Ken, for your kind words, means a lot!!
  6. Hi again! It’s been a while, that’s for sure. So… my wife left me a couple of months ago. I’ve been kind of busy getting used to this new life of mine. It didn't come as a shock but still, you never know what to expect. The hardest part has been seeing my children sad and confused… both me and my ex wife are determined to make this as less painful for them as possible is but even if you try the hardest you can they will get really sad. My youngest, a boy of 6, is at pre school and it’s real painful to hear from the teachers that he can sit in school all by himself doing nothing, not playing with anyone, just sitting there looking out the window… Anyway... this blogpost is not gonna be about me complaining over the hard parts of being a single dad. Instead I will focus on what good has actually come out of the divorce. You see, the thing is that we have decided that we shall have the children every other week and when they are at their mum’s that means that I get a lot of ”free time” to finally (!!!) be able to get my new album ready. My last (and first) album ’Made by Who?’ was released in 2014 so it’s about time to get another one released. I’ve been writing some new material and I’ve set up my new studio down the basement. I just need to get some good acoustic treatment done. The room doesn’t sound to good:) Hopefully I will manage to get 12-14 new songs written, produced, mixed and mastered before summer. Since I do everything by myself it will be difficult but I think it’s good to have a deadline to work against. So… let’s say before may 31 the album will be ready, is that ok for you!!? Talk soon, /Martin
  7. Hey y’all! Just wanted to share some thoughts… When I first started my career as a musician I was totally in to the electric bass. I did nothing but practice scales, playing techniques, walking lines, slap bass, motown lines, disco grooves – just about everything there was to learn. I studied for about 6 years to be as good as I could get and I remember me and my class mates being up all night jamming around on all kinds of music styles – jazz, fusion, experimental. It was absolutely wonderful:) Of course, all along this journey I always came back to my roots: alternative rock, hard rock, post grunge, indie rock/pop – the Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Queens of the Stone Age, the Smashing Pumpkins, the Killers and so on… music that just makes me feel alive!! But… what I would like to say here is that I had absolutely no interest in lyrics! I was always much more listening for the energy in songs, what the band together as a whole (lead singer included) could communicate as a soundscape, and that said I didn’t have the need to focus on the lyrics but much more on the melody that was sung. I don’t know if any of you have had that same experience? Over the years I’ve been focusing more on my voice, taking lessons, getting interested in different techniques, and above all I’ve found out how fantastic it is for me to express myself with words!! It’s just the best, I love it when I’m in front of an audience (doesn’t matter if it’s 60 people or a thousand people, the feeling is the same. And since I’ve discovered this to be the most important thing for me I’ve also grown a huge interest in lyrics. I write all my lyrics by myself and have found it to be really satisfying to tell stories about this and that. Sometimes it’s about things that I’ve experienced and sometimes it’s just a thought that comes to my mind or something someone tells me that I can elaborate on. Since I’ve grown this interest in lyrics I just wanted to share some lines from songs that I think is just amazing and has inspired me a lot. It would be awesome if you’d like to share your thoughts on what the lyrics in songs means to you and maybe if you got any particular song writers that you find to stand out… or anything else you want to share:) Lake of Fire This one I actually thought for a long time to be an original song by Nirvana. I even heard stories about how Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic had written the lyrics together… how wrong was I!! It’s written by Meat Puppets as early as in 1984 as a promo single but ended up at Too High to Die released in 1994. What about these lines: Now the people cry and the people moan And they look for a dry place to call their home And try to find some place to rest their bones While the angels and the devils try to make them their own I appear missing Simply the best entrance to a song that I’ve ever heard. Queens of the Stoneage at it’s best!! The words, I’m pretty sure, are written by Dean Fertita but please correct me if I’m wrong;) Calling all comas, Prisoner on the loose. Description: A spitting image of me Except for the heart-shaped hole where the hope runs out Read my mind I see the Killers as one of the most intricate indie pop/rock (whatever genre you choose) bands there is when it comes to arranging their tunes and taking unexpected turns. Listen to ‘When you were young’ and you’ll see what I mean! Brandon Flowers has called ‘Read my mind’ ”the best song he has ever written”. Since it’s been a decade ago (Sam’s Town, 2007) maybe he thinks he has written something even better now:) These are a few lines from Read my mind: The good old days, the honest man The restless heart, the Promised Land A subtle kiss that no one sees A broken wrist and a big trapeze Any particular lyrics you like? Any song writers that stands out? Anything else you wanna share? …oh, by the way, if you’re interested in some free music you can visit my website drkeybag.com Take care everybody!!
