EuphemiaSometimes I wonder

About myself and what the hell I am doing with my priorities. Someone heard me sing and sent me a song to record for him. What a compliment. But several weeks have gone by, and have I recorded the song for him? No! Why? Just not even crossed my mind – been busy. Well work is one thing, family is one thing, but how rude of me! Get in the studio you silly cow!! 3 days ago


MapOfYourHeadFrom Title To Trackname

I had another idea, which is very similar to the last idea I had. It would be another ambient album, but with a different inspiration source this time. The idea is to go through all of my entries on 43things, and sort out the most interesting titles. The best of these will be made into songs. 4 weeks ago

MapOfYourHeadThe Earliest Memories

I’m well on my way to complete the album I’ve already started working on – even though it’s progressing way too slow – but last night I came up with another idea for an album! The idea is to create an ambient set of tracks that resemble some of the earlier memories of my childhood. I think it could be pretty cool and totally doable. 2 months ago

ChuchotementMaking Time vs. Making Excuses

Working on my first release has been daunting, to say the least. All of the songs are personal, to a point of raw vulnerability that can be uncomfortable. I have made a lot of excuses:

I’m too busy, too old, too perfectionistic…
...not talented enough, not dedicated enough…
...easily distracted by “life,” worried about the album affecting my job.

I have a lot of hang-ups. Basically, the best solution I can see is to simply make the time, stick to some kind of a schedule, and keep working. It will happen one day; there’s no point in avoiding it or rushing it. It would be nice to have everything written and ready to edit by the end of next year, so I’ll make that my new goal. 3 months ago


CherryCheerFirst single

I started last week in a studio with a professional producer. We have a first single almost done! He will do some final adjustments. Now the only thing left is to do the mastering for that particular song. I decided to first start with a free single release before releasing an album…. 3 months ago

EuphemiaComing home

Think I will include this little track of ours on the album, but this is live version so will need to re-record in the studio:

My band “The Rotating Point Source” finally finished recording its first album! Its a self titled party punk rock album, and its available on iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon, CD Baby, Spotify, and just about everywhere else where music is sold!

It was many years in the making but it felt AWESOME to finally finish this music project! We did a lot of networking and met a lot of very helpful people along the way. What an amazing experience! 9 months ago

Christopher James ScholtenSo obviously there's been a change of plans.

There’s no way in hell I’ll be able to continuously make music on top of all this other crap for 3 whole years. My girlfriend and councelor have helped me come to terms with this. Not only do I not have the time, talent, resources, or the attention span, I simply do not have the patience to spend every day working on putting out songs that are already outdated.

So for now I’m sticking to what I know: experimental electronics. So far I’ve released not one, but two EPs on my Bandcamp profile which you can stream for free if you feel inclined. I will be putting out another on the 9th of August. Same as the other two – 6 tracks, 4 of which are already finished. That’s all you need to know for now. Moron this as it develops. 9 months ago

knock418getting there!

ok so this has been on my to-do list for almost 20 years! lol, i know. im slow. thats why im actually pretty excited right now and felt i should share. for real, its never too late! dont give up!

i have 10 songs recorded and hoping for one more but if not, im working with these 10. my next steps are crafting it into an album. i.e. song order, interludes, mixing, mastering. i want the album to feel very focused. where its less about me and more about what i want the album to say.

i just spoke with 2 photog friends about getting photos done. then, the last part is putting together the booklet. yes, in the modern day of mp3, i want a booklet. like i said, ive been wanting this for a long time so it just wont feel right if i cant pull out the sleeve and look through it.

the best thing i ever did was give myself a schedule. it doesnt matter if you dont keep it. setbacks happen. the key for me was to revise the schedule instead of giving up on it. i always had a problem with beating myself up for not keeping the schedule. i made my schedule my enemy but im finally learning how to be friends. make the time and time will be on your side.

i had another issue with wanting it to be perfect. this would be the primary cause of my schedule delays. what helped with this was to force myself to do something, anything. id book studio time in advance and itd force me to come up with something. then id have something concrete to bring home and improve on, share with others. proof of my investment. for me, making an album has to be like living. its a record of the journey. i didnt come out of the womb perfect and im not perfect today. thats all i need to capture. 13 months ago
