Today when I checked my Tumblr account I had a message:

So awesome. It definitely made my day.

None of Those Things (Demo)

I wrote and recorded this demo version of None of Those Things yesterday. It was pretty easy to write. At first, I came up with a melody that I liked, then the first three lines were written immediately. Spent about an hour writing the lyrics for the rest of the song. I looked through my notebooks where I write down stuff I come up with. Like lyrics and words and stuff. I found these lines: “Everything we thought we’d say / Everything we thought we’d do / None of those things / We became none of those things”. Then I wrote the rest of the lyrics from that, pretty much. When I had written all the lyrics and played the song through like five times, I recorded a demo version, just to have something to built upon when I’m going to record a “real” version of it.
The song is about dealing with my mum’s death. She passed away back in August this year.

Trying to accept the fact that you’re gone
Knowing nothing will ever hurt for as long
If I could, I’d go back, back into your arms
Press my ear against your chest just to hear the beating of your heart
Everything we thought we would say
Everything we thought we would do
Trying to escape from the rest of my life
Knowing every breath will hurt like the edge of a knife
’Cause we can never go back; reality has changed
I really wanna go back but everything has changed
Everything we thought we would say (none of those things)
Everything we thought we would do (we became none of those things)
Replace the memory of your cold skin with your warmth
Replace this emptiness with a feeling that I’ve grown

Finally: an official site!

Fraction of Sounds finally has a real official site. No more .blogspot.com or .wordpress.com or .bandcamp.com. Well, there's still a Bandcamp page, too, but it won't be treated as an official website. www.fractionofsounds.com is the real thing, from now on. It's the address you should first and foremost visit for the latest news, new music and downloads. This blog is still the official blog, though.

I'm also quite proud about the fact that I've made the website all by myself. I wrote the HTML and CSS code from scratch. Registered the domain and signed up for a web hosting site. Uploaded all my files and got the Fraction of Sounds site running. Yep. That's some serious DIY shit! Learned quite a bit along the way by doing all this, actually.

Well, that's pretty much what I had to share at the moment. Hopefully, I'll get som music recorded in the next few days. Later today, I'm going to visit a friend and borrow a bar stool from her. That stool will come in handy when recording guitar, using my mic stand.
