New Video: Sunset Landscape

I nearly forgot to share my new video, which is available on YouTube. This is the video that I made by taking lots of stills photos a few weeks ago, and made a blog post about.

If you get travel sick easily or suffer from epilepsy, I should warn you that it’s quite wobbly because of how it is made, with rapidly changing images. It was an interesting technique to use, though, a bit like stop motion, and I wouldn’t mind making something in a similar style but using a tripod or similar stand to reduce the wobble factor another time.

Age Equality Survey

As part of my academic studies, I ran a survey during February concerning perceptions of and attitudes concerning age equality, as it relates to the music industry. It also looked at different ages’ listening habits.

I don’t think it was the most scientific study ever, and I’m sure the Radio 4 More or Less team would be able to pick some holes in it, but I think there is at least some indication of the trends.

A significant proportion of the responses came through posting requests for responses on Lincolnshire musicians’ facebook sites, but there were also responses from further afield. There may therefore be some regional bias affecting the overall response as a result of the survey’s methodology. All responses were anonymous, though, and the survey did not collect geographical information.  Approximately half of participants were music consumers rather than being involved in the music industry to some extent.

A huge thankyou to everyone who took the time to fill out the form, making this a much more interesting and fulfilling project to undertake.

You can view the original survey and read the results via the link below…. (don’t be put off by the length of the document, it’s mainly charts!)

This Friday, 6 May will see the launch of my debut single, Sunset Landscape. This is the track that I was making the video for using stills photography a few weeks back. It feels exciting to have got this far through the process and to be able to share it here.

I’ll post more details in the next day or two – watch this space!
