I found lines this year thanks to a lot of chance (see: Instagram algorithms). Long story short: A video @mattlowery posted tagged the lines community. The net effect of this video (Moog Matriarch study w/PWM for those curious) was that I discovered a side of not only Eurorack, but an approach to music making, that was very appealing to me. So I jumped into Euro and have begun a new musical chapter.
I also stopped drinking this year (in February) and had been devoting my evenings to making music which was fun, challenging, exciting, and frustrating all at the same time. I have also been trying to stay off of social media, which is a big change too. This community has provided so many great hours of reading and a constant source of inspiration. After being on for a while I participated in my first Disquiet Junto, which has also been great.
Being a part of this community has been such a positive for me. I’m actually recording again, I’m posting some music to SoundCloud on a somewhat regular basis, and the influence of everyone here is inspiring. I’m learning and pushing myself to create, but balancing that with just having fun and enjoying being a small part of a community. Thank you to everyone who posts! I really enjoy pictures of your setups, what you’re recording, learning how you use modules, and how you approach things.
