RANDOM WORDS OF ZOOLON

I was sat in the back of a car stuck in an unreal queue, waiting. I was able to borrow a pen and paper to help kill the boredom, kill the time. I wrote down some random words as they came into my head. It’s a thing I often do. Sometimes a song appears. When

Questions & Answers

Clever Jennifer Paetsch, who writes and produces the brilliant online comic book ‘Little Monster Girl’ (https://wordpress.com/tag/little-monster-girl) asked me if I would take up the challenge, and answer four Friendly ‘Share Your World’ Chat questions. So, that’s what I’ve done. What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person? The Sea, wherever

ON THE EDGE

Here’s an experimental track I made using samples (if it helps, made in Bitwig).  I called it ‘On the Edge’ because that’s how I remember I felt the day I composed it.  I was under attack from an overload of thoughts. The sort of thing we all suffer from time to time. Those times when

THE UNIMAGINATIVE POLTERGEIST

‘When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth,’ the words of Sherlock Holmes, written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and popular with the odd philosopher stuck for an answer. I was stuck behind a hearse and limousine funeral procession the other day. I didn’t mind having to drive so

POINTLESS SIGNS & RANDOM THOUGHTS

Above, arguably the most pointless sign ever. I discovered it on a wall in the corner of Market Square where everything is just modern brick and concrete. ‘Near this spot were the town’s instruments of punishment etc.’ They’re not there and probably haven’t been there for centuries and I wouldn’t want to see them even

BALLERINA DANCING

  Here’s a demo version of a song ‘Ballerina Dancing’. The song was from a concept album I wrote at uni. The album was themed on Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. The photo above is one I took during a marionette carnival week in Charleville-Mézières, Ardennes. Don’t know why but it seems to fit the

ANTS IN AWKWARD PLACES

An older song I’ve added to the SoundCloud page.  It’s a rehash demo version of a song I wrote when I was 15.  I keep it because it was one of my first ever compositions. One day I’ll rehash the rehash and do it properly. I’ve always liked the line “More to life than the

‘POOR EXCUSES’

https://soundcloud.com/zoolon/poor-excuses The fog is amazingly dense today. Serious fog. Fog that would probably put even Jack the Ripper off going out to murder someone. The random thought struck me that you never hear seagulls when its foggy. You hear them day and night, rainy day or sunshine but never in fog. Odd. Also, I’ve been

ZOOLON AND THE LIFE COACH

(above, a near death experience) I had a motivational life coach type person message me on Twitter. He wrote that there is no such thing as a problem because all problems are just challenges. I am presuming he has never lost the pin numbers for his bank cards or forgotten his parachute when jumping out

THE CURSE OF THE MISSING ALLEN KEY

Most of the time I live, breath and think about all things music although sometimes I get interrupted by the random small things of life. Take today. All I wanted to do was restring my old Ibanez Guitar. It is one of my favourite guitars and I needed it for a piece I’m working on.
