Ongoing music and lyric writing, and remote collaboration with overseas musicians

| Yksivuotinen

My objective is, primarily, to write and record music, and seek and execute cooperation both remotely and in person with other musicians and song writers. During this pandemic lockdown period I will take part in a project called 'The Pandemic Orchestra', which was started by a musician friend of mine in Germany. Musicians in several countries are contributing instrumental parts to the music, recording parts themselves and then pooling the music for post production. I will be contributing both instrumental and vocal parts to this project. This is an unpaid collaboration I will also be writing lyrics for a colleague in Finland for her to write her own music to. A third objective, which is what I work on whenever I can, is to write and compose my own music, later recording it and aiming to perform it or have it picked up for publishing. This is all with a view to broaden my musical career to an international level, ultimately to be my livelihood. So far, I have financed all of my personal endeavours through freelance musician work and teaching work.
