After playing in a band for many years, releasing a couple of records and touring Europe and the US(you can listen here, it is post rocky/90s indie-ish https://youthpictures.bandcamp.com) the band slowly started winding down and I found more time to explore my more experimental(ambient/drone/glitchy electronics) music.
While doing stuff alone is great I always have big issues with feeling that something is good enough to share, and having a collaborator makes it easier and also more productive to “finish” stuff.
Thankfully I quickly found a collaborator and we started both jamming and sending files online. It was a great creative partnership that I learned a lot from and truly wished was still ongoing. But my creative partner unfortunately grew tired of what we were doing and wanted to do more of a traditional “band” thing again, while I already had my old band and a new band going(https://benleiper.bandcamp.com) I still want to pursue the world of more improvised and less traditionally structured music, preferably with someone as a sparring partner.
If anyone is looking for someone just to send some tracks back and forth, no pressure, no clear goals, just to test out the waters I would love to find someone here to just be creative with. I normally work with heavily processed guitars, glockenspiels, melodicas etc. Currently deep into norns + a small arsenal of fun creative fx pedals. A small glimpse into what I like to do can be found here:
my fresh instagram created to “celebrate” my first time playing solo in front of other people after about 10 years of playing to myself.
Mods: this might go in under a different topic, but I couldn’t find anything similar searching the forum. Maybe this could work as a hub for different people looking for collaborators?
