On the first of January I embarked on a new musical journey. I started project ONOMA.

The challenge: create an instrumental album with at least two tracks, 20 minutes each, for a release in mid-August. The title is the Greek word for name. Cheesy I know. But it has a very musical ring to me.

In August 2018 I made the opening theme, while just doodling on Machine, in 2 days, bounced it to Google drive to listen to it on my mobile. When I wanted to start working on it again the next day, my music hard drive crashed and I lost all of the midi files related to it and most of the midi for my backcatalogue. Just the bounced file and the tweaked Maschine beat survived. As I also lost access to my plugins, I couldn’t restart the work until I had built up my PC again.

I almost had forgotten about the track. In December I started to clean up my Google drive an rediscovered it, liked it and had the idea for the challenge. And so the new year’s resolution for this challenge was born.

By now I am well into creating the first track, the A-side. The style is eclectic as always. It definitely has vibes from Oldfield and Jarre. A little Markus is in there, too. Shifting from Rock to Folk to Pop to synthy Techno.

I started an production update series on my Instagram. Soon I will be uploading some sounds. Stay tuned for it.

But the project is not only a musical one. I also decided to streamline my visual appearance on social. I will focus on Instagram and started by trying to find a more coherent style for my posts. I hope you’ll like it.

This is all a evolutionary process. I hope the final product will find an audience.

Stay tuned, listen, enjoy, like.
