Hello again inmates!

Well, here it is! As I mentioned before, I’m posting something a little more “musical” and as unsurprising as it may be, it’s a Halloween special of the Harlequins writing music! It’s the time for trick-or-treating, costume parties and generally being freaky. Music can fit all of these things, music can transform fear into terror and unease into panic. Music and Halloween go hand in hand.

I listen to a great many bands, both obscure and popular. As you may know, I try to keep it as varied as i can. With Halloween upon us, I felt that it would be quite apt to post the bands and songs I write with that fit well with Halloween. Crunching metal epics, fancy costumes and spooky electronic jingles can all be found here. I believe I’ve posted a few of these bands before, but I shall try to keep the songs new. You may know some of these bands, you may not know some of them, however I guarantee you won’t be disappointed in these choices. Unless you’re easily freaked out I suppose.

Now, let us delve into the musical minds of freakish artists the world over!

So there we have it for another edition! I included a few more songs than usual, with this being a special occasion and all. Here’s hoping that you’ve enjoyed this edition of the Harlequins writing music, I hope that you check out these artists. And once again, I hope that you all have a very happy Halloween! Now, I’m going to go and cut a pumpkin, or something like that. Haha!

Until next time, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

I hope that you’re all having a fine day! It’s finally time for yet another edition of the Harlequins writing music. It feels like ages since I actually posted the last one of these. I’m fairly sure it was over a month ago. That simply won’t do! There has been a lot going on here at the asylum you see. A busy time indeed. I haven’t been posting nearly as much as I’d like to due to all of this. I’m trying to get back into a routine though, so I suppose we shall see. Wish me luck eh?

So here we are once again, I’m going to present to you some more fine bands that I often listen to while I write. I try to keep it as varied as possible. No single genre here my friends!

Now, let us delve into the musical minds of estimable artists the world over!

Slipknot – Vermillion

So there you have it! I’d say that’s a pretty varied little musical journey into the aether, wouldn’t you? A little bit of madness, a touch of calmness and then finished off with a dash of mournful rage. A veritable odyssey I say! I hope that you’ve enjoyed this edition of the Harlequins writing music and I hope to see you all again soon! I’m still working on a few pieces to be posted up, so watch out for those in the next few days. Tally-ho!

Until next time, have a supremely crazy day inmates!

Good day inmates!

It’s summer time finally! The sun is beaming down (occasionally), the sky is ever-blue and the island I live on is full of visitors. Oh yes, summer! The time of year for music festivals, trips to the beach, road trips along sweltering roads and wonderful parties at sunset. The time of stargazing and sunbathing. It’s my favorite time of year, believe it or not. I wanted to post another chapter of the Harlequins writing music, but I thought it would be fun to do it a bit differently this time. We’re here to celebrate the summer after all!

So yes! This is the “Summer Special” of the Harlequins writing music! Let’s all rejoice and party and all that! I’m going to post some summery songs that I may write with sometimes. I find that my productivity goes up noticeably during hot weather, it just makes me feel more energetic and creative. Since this is a special, I’m not too bothered about posting songs by artists that I have posted in the previous chapters of writing music. Some bands have dark depressing tunes, while still having energetic ‘party-esque’ summer numbers. These songs will represent the innate nature of summer. Some will be high tempo beach party songs, some may be spirited and optimistic holiday anthems, while others may be slower watching-over-a-sunset tunes. Let’s see what we get eh?

Now, let us delve into the musical minds of aestival artists the world over!

So there we go! That’s it for our celebration of the summer months. I hope you’ve enjoyed this special edition of the Harlequins writing music! I feel that each of these songs is quite summery, you can’t really have summer music without at least one Blink 182 or Offspring song eh? Give each of these bands a try if you haven’t already, you shan’t be disappointed! Anyway, I hope each and everyone one of you out there is having a wonderful summer! I intend to! Best keep those tans topped up right?!

Until next time, have a very crazy day inmates!
