Dictators Wait To Climb The Ranks? Naaaaaaaah!

Standard

Woke up today & felt like a punk & had an idea for something hilarious.

Trolling is always good for the soul & the bigger the audience is the better πŸ˜›

I can’t wait until I’m done with this personal, ambitious multi-album of mine that I’m currently working on!

Cuss’ now I feel like shooting some rock’n’roll πŸ˜›

I imagine that those who like my classical singing/guitar playing & upcoming material will be quite surprised if they discover my metal πŸ˜›

Today I had a flashback to my favourite (or most hilarious) music video shoot. When you choose a theme per song it gives you the opportunity to create various characters for each incarnation of your weirdness. It’s great fun.

Video Blog!

Standard

For only 1$ you can unlock all of my update & sneak peek videos regarding my upcoming 3rd release, which will be a multi-album affair! I played with the idea of a video blog back in 2013 and started this written blog back in 2015 due to fans asking for one. Early this year I started a Patreon where I release two new video updates every month! So if you want to follow a consistent video-blog there is now an opportunity to do so.

If you pay more than 1$ you unlock more exclusives such as music lessons, care packages, etc; If you like my artistry & you are curious as to what I’m doing, then please sign up!

Once I’m done with my 3rd “album,” there will obviously be more creative projects in the works, since I’m always in the middle of a creative process!

Here are some “blog-style” videos that are publicly available on my YouTube! Sign up to see my “Patreon-only” video library.

Finally.

The loose threads will not be loose for much longer.

I look forward to releasing my 3rd body of work and I think that this will finally give people a full impression of who I am and what I can do as an artist!

I cannot wait! πŸ™‚ I feel very encouraged by the fantastic feedback that I’ve received so far! Now the challenge is to get people to hear about it & spread the word!

For those who’ve followed me since 2008 you might remember my very 1st music video & version of “Battle For The Mind,” in addition to my 1st version of “If The Dead Ones Could Talk.”

The sound and style changed drastically from those two 1st demos to my first Demo EP “State of The Union” in 2009, and my rock’n’roll changed and evolved further with my
“Battle For The Mind” Demo released in 2010.

There’s been a constant musical evolution first within heavy metal and then with the classical music, while there were other musical directions & ideas brewing in the background!

If anyone had told me back in 2005 that I would have ended up shredding violin virtuoso pieces on a 7 string guitar, while learning how to sing “Queen Of The Night,” in addition to changing my genres and alternating between songwriting styles, I would never have believed them! Not at all! Yet here I am.

I cannot believe how artistically and technically adventurous the choice of music turned out to be!

If I could turn back time I would still have pursued music, because I knew back then that if I had not, then I would have been haunted for the rest of my life by “what if?”

I had no idea that I had it in me to be a virtuoso. I started late. I was just going to write songs and be an artistic spirit.

Yet now I find myself here:

Who knows what the future might hold in store for me, but I hope that this is just the beginning. I have too much unreleased music and ideas that I want to put out there!

Thanks a lot to those of you who’ve supported my work! Please keep on doing it! πŸ™‚

Thank you!

Final Flier Summer Evening of Song (Berit Hagan) A4

Summer.

Standard

It’s so nice when the weather is good and the sun actually provides warmth πŸ˜›

Seems to me like the sun is just for show in these parts πŸ˜€

Today I’ve been practising for the fundraising concert I’m doing for one of the local churches.

I’m a bit overwhelmed by my 3rd album, since there is so much happening musically in there. I’ve now decided to add even more to it, and I’ve also had some new ideas with more parts that I want to add on things I’ve already recorded…

(You can support what I’m doing here: My Patreon)…

Creativity and having lots of ideas can be very overwhelming at times.

I have lots of ideas for illustrated books as well, there’s no end…

It is interesting how someone like Jordan B.Peterson is running around the world preaching to people that they need to clean up their rooms and react to things properly, I wonder what his take on creativity would be?

Creative individuals write and create when they are upset, which means that they don’t really sort out the source of what makes them upset a lot of times. Creatives are also notorious for never cleaning their room or atelier as well πŸ˜›

Apparently you should clean up your room before you can save the world or create something πŸ˜›

Reminds me of this guitar expert I tried to take lessons from ages ago who claimed that: “you can only create if you know all the theory and techniques out there;” which is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life, not to forget this one:”If someone tells you what to create, then you’ll be super productive.” Needless to say, we didn’t see eye to eye….Creativity should never be boxed in or know limitations, unless you are working on something that is “made to order” or whatever, creativity is like water, it is all over the place, and if it is dammed up it will just explode at one point or the other. You might experience tsunamis of creativity. I normally work on multiple songs simultaneously in different genres…

Anyway….

Here are some pictures of me doing nothing…..

I’m guessing this is awesome, since blogging about nothing makes you cool.
