Joe lives in Cambridge, UK. In the past, he has struggled to finish creative projects, so he started a blog on the off-chance that it might help him contribute something meaningful to the online world. You decide.

Just a half hour

When it comes to starting a creative project, the easiest thing is to put it off until the day I have 'a little more time'. After all, recording is a long process, the microphone(s) must be in the right place, I need to decide which software I want to use, I'm not even sure I have the right equipment...The list of objections I can make is endless. 

Unfortunately, even if I could have all my ducks in a row, the perfect time never arrives.

Bad traffic meant I was working from home today, and during my lunch break I was faced with a choice: watch the next episode of Into the Badlands on Amazon Prime or sit at my piano and record something.

I chose the latter.

Whatever I produced in that half hour, whether good, bad or ugly, I was going to upload it to this blog with the satisfaction that a piece of music that didn't exist, now exists for other people to hear. What matters to me is that I achieved something in a half an hour that could easily have been wasted. If you enjoy the ad hoc improvisation, thank you. If you don't, perhaps you can still appreciate the thought behind it. 

One topic, divergent views
