Declan IOM 17


Isle of Man   Jan 2016

Artist Bio

Influences:   Psyche, pop, indie, punk, new wave, soul, electronica, jazz, folk, country, jazz...although these are just labels.

I live in the Isle of Man, but I get across to gigs and festivals in the rest of the British Isles and Europe. Next trip being John Cale in Liverpool --> Swans and the Fall in Manchester then Primavera in Barcelona. Also going to the End of the Road and The Liverpool International Festival of Psyche.

When I'm travelling and at festivals I often scribble bits of lyrics that I turn into songs in the winter months.

I sing / not sing. Not really I musician, but I have some keyboards and know where most of the notes are. Use Ableton and sometimes Garage Band on my phone especially when I want scuzzy lo fi vocals.

Took park in FAHM last year. Made about 20 songs. Enjoyed a few collaborations.Here's the playlist.

    Just listened to the first couple of songs on your friend's EP and I really like it! Plus, I was amused to see that I have four of the six instruments that he used in my stash, which probably says something about my terrible hoarding! Thanks for the link, definitely adding it to my BandCamp collection for future listening...

  • @factorytale Feb 26

    Thanks for the nice comment about the Trappist-1! I'm sure someone else will also write a song about it, there is still a couple of days left.

  • @raygungirls  Feb 24

    Thanks for checking out my latest, "Escape Velocity".
    You are correct about the usage of "multination"... unless it's a noun! I know, then it would be with a capital "M", but I was in a rush to type the lyrics.
    No matter how heavy I try to get, my choruses always come out like Punk... can't help it. Most of my music this year has been Punk actually. Ok, enough about me... 😁

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 2017

    Hey I am on my phone right now so I can't grab your 10 sec. But I did want to respond to your question. Yes forward your entire piece to the stitcher.
    I'll download the 10 sec tonight or tomorrow. Do you have BPM and key info at all?

  • @frozenlonesome Feb 2017

    Thanks Declan. Tag away with Apptronica. 😀
    Apps? OK, here we go... All synth sounds and arp from Addictive Pro synth (which I just picked this morning). Recorded in AUM and Audioshare, arranged and mixed in AuriaPro finished in Mastering. FXs include: Haze, Echo Pad, Korvpressor and a couple I can't recall.

  • @aeye Feb 2017

    Thanks for listening to the album 😀 Glad you really enjoyed it

  • @beat  Feb 2017

    Thx for listening and words. Not on purpose, bud I often produce soundscapes without, or just lil progression. And then again...
    Looking forward to listening into your tracks. Country jazz eh? *].

  • @tageule Feb 2017

    Thanks for your nice comment. And no, it is a (not mentioned because obvious) cat that says meouw, the hedgehog arrives later. It says sdrfgkvndsbsykdflljb like every hedgehog, but there, alas, the mic was already switched off. So everything is in perfect order, be assured. And, most important, the child stayed far enough away from the mangle and the river. So, have nice dreams. (And if you think I sound a bit weird that's just because I sound a bit weird. No worries, it's just lack of sleep and etiquette.)
    Oh, and I do like your Pigeon House but I guess I'd better refrain from writing anything more for today. Bye. 😀
