Hello there its nearly the end of the year but I did it , I set up office ready for music work …. Its been a very busy year of work for me even though the build finished 7 months ago , it has been almost more work in the aftermaths of the destruction . trying to work out how to pull myself back into music has been a challenge as its been a while since I have been working on anything and sometimes in your mind things seem easier than they actually are , so I started in later September by ordering computer and setting myself up in the swing of 2010 , now I was on 2005 so its been a massive leap but I am loving it now , hours of working everything out and downloading apps and installing all very new to me haha

Then after much considation I moved rooms , the skylight in the other room was far to light for me and my creativity i like a cave , moving into a very pink room wasn’t ideal so this week I have painted it and cleared out anything I do not need anymore which has been very nice for the mood , I feel now I have a good space to work finally and the tools to do this now the hard work begins

so even though I have been indecisive about my space and very busy in other elements of my live , I have been writing to Ive written 5 new songs ready for recording and sending out to publishers and pop/film producers so if anyone out there in music wanna hear them give me a shout there really great I am pretty pleased with them lyrically

Also I have been working on a few trance tracks and EDM style musical tracks to just waiting on feedback so things are getting exciting so shouldn’t be too much longer that your hear some music from me and also over next few weeks your probably see me in my studio in action on you tube so say hi  🙂


Song teaser …  (love me)

clouds gather with in my mind like a storm – it gets dark sometimes before it rains , the suns sits defiant in the summer sky , I wish you were here with me


Take Care Emma x

Diary Entry 5, Blazing June

Happy Summer solstice has come and gone and we are now in the realms of summer, After a few weeks of sickness bugs and not being able to fiction  this has taken a great turn for the better , Over the last few weeks I have been writing to trap music online , I’ve come up with some great songs , Oblivion – Cry Baby – Kisses of Death and a few more that I am keeping for production later on down the line this year  , Oblivion can be found on my you tube channel as well as Cry Baby – recorded at home with mobile phone and amps guitar and vocals just a teaser of what the track could become when produced one day.

its been tricky as I have been writing and not singing in and out of the energy of illness so its not been very much but that is over now and I am gladly on the way to recovery , didn’t think I’d escape the darkness but it makes you appreciate moments more , also a few friends helped me through it which has been lovely, so today will sing my little heart out and finish some of these tracks finally , 3 weeks is a long time to feel rubbish but now on the bright side have more inspiration to write kinda unbelievable i wrote some good tracks within that time , guess I was escaping in my mind.

Alot has changed over the last few weeks , there has been a shift in my emotions towards music , I am still very much stuck at the moment as I don’t have my music computer at this time and plan to get one in September so this has given me grace to really reflect on what I want , what my fans want and what my soul wants to create  , a time to reflect and its not always easy making decisions on what to do , so i let the music guide me more.

I listened to a few hours of trance mixes last night, some really lovely tracks really zoned in to it it was nice , watched more trap videos and commercial tracks , i think part of me is so torn on what I like and what actually comes out  anyways i guess that is just the fun of learning about your craft

I brought myself a English Thesaurus yesterday its sitting under my interface , will spend hours in that book soon , cant wait to look at the words and see how they can sit next to another word , I am so inspired at the moment partly because i am well now but also because i am far away from that house build I had , I’m now getting into a routine of work patterns and not having destruction around me day and night , theirs one picture in my album of a building site right through my house , you don’t release how this can effect you so much to every degree, so now there is peace and reflection time and time , although I start my summer work soon so will have to go on hold for a month before back to music , this I hope is not to upsetting for my creativity

I will be working with a few producers in September and should be releasing some music by the end of the year which is so exciting , will have to get my head around the new version of cubase  which is going to be fun I guess its not to dis similar that my old one !

Well above is information of new remix released so check it out  Cheers Emma x

 

 

Diary Entry 4 .

Hi

Today I am in studio clearing through things I don’t need , its been a good few weeks getting back to music, which has been creative and some what odd at times , this evening  I am also  practising songs and writing an other which is pretty much finished a twist of an environmental song I guess not totally decided yet if to take it to a darker level , i have an idea so i  may try it out or may be 2 in the making not totally decided yet , that’s how it goes sometimes with song writing for me anyways …

I love writing songs and its good practise to keep at it , through the build I did have my headphones on and sang, but its not quite the same I need my own space to go wild in sounds,  I have dig out an old DJx keyboard i brought about 17 years ago so playing around with that too at moment , as I will have to wait to get my computer and update my studio equipment  , its a good time to reflect and write songs ready .

Thank you to everyone who has connected me in the last week , i will get back to you and your requests its been so nice to reconnect with people and fans , and welcome to all the newbies 😉 if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask , happy to reply as and when I can

Office plan

So I pretty much need everything , but gonna start small and work my way up , its been quite an experience building the office and a year from now things will be very different so i must stay grounded and be patient

Today I brought myself a black out blind for studio, so very  excited as can not work in clinical light lol, i hope that is up this weekend so I can start doing some more filming and live talks which would be nice and a bit more interactive with you all ! As much as i like seeing the sky the light is not helping the creative flow … can’t to be in the dark lol haha

Lyrics to Oblivion have been written out under you tube video if you want to read them , I know some of you really like to see them , specially those who do not speak English .

Oblivion – Emma Lock – New Song

Right well I be on my busy way now , going to take some pictures of myself wrapped up in old leads before I recycle them that could be a good photo for the environmental track , interesting oh what fun there is to be had with a bit of rubbish , i may make an art piece for my studio wall actually not totally decided yet , either way it will be fun .

Back again soon Cheers Emma Lock

 

 

 

Diary Entry 3 …. 2019

wow where does the time go , its been 2 years since i have written my Diary entry on website and i do apologise, i did not think things would take quite as long as they did , but there you go ….

So in the last  years I built my studio , this was a dirty dusty crazy few years of planning and building organising and taking up many man hours , so music has not been on the for front of activities but i have been doing it so i can work so i guess the break was worth it

Since getting back to music in the last few weeks , i have decided to update all my equipment to go in my new room, so this is another slow process before recording got to get my head around everything so at moment writing songs on Guitar and getting myself ready for that which should be this September so I am very excited about getting my new computer and updating everything, considering I have waited 2 years I can wait another 6 months easy and it will go ever so quick I am sure.

So in the evenings over the last 2 weeks written 6 tracks , one of which I preformed on you tube yesterday , here it is link below

Oblivion – Emma Lock

I will write out Lyrics later .

Cheers Emma Lock x

 

 

Diary Entry 2

Diary week 2

Well it’s been a long week here for me, there is a delay in my diary because, I  have been really busy this week with lots of other tasks, that’s the thing with music it kind of has its place in my life but this week it’s not really been on my full attention ,although I did clear my office /studio this week and ordered myself a new tablet as for 2 years been doing most things on my phone and I am sure it’s starting to affect my eye sight ! So I am really looking forward to setting it up and sorting all sites out as working on a phone is really hard to work out everything! I cleared my laptop that I’ve had for about 6 years and gave it to a friend , looking through all the things I’ve  done and material things I have in my office  in the loft, is like going back in time,  it’s strange now how wires / leads / cds have all become almost redundant. what do you do with all these things? Make some crazy wall art or something i guess lol 😉

I have not got the heart to throw them away at moment, so there they sit waiting to be decided on , but I will have another clear out ,when I update my music computers some time maybe this year does depend on finances really and at the moment it’s not broken so why get something new, with a studio office build in front of me next year others things come first and with a year in the planning nice now to have a builder , so I am seriously excited about this starting in march, I’ve worked hard for this can’t wait to see myself in my new office by summer 2018 wow , better than sitting in rubble which has been the last year !

Song writing has been on my mind 10 to a dozen this week , I really sometimes beat myself up for hours as I miss creating, I miss working with people and I miss myself and I miss travelling  , its so easy for life to just take you away from your art , through illness/ work for money/ tiredness / winter weather / you could use every excuses under the sun ,so sometimes I study artists in the art fields , people who just make art everywhere and this keeps my spirits high , thinking that there will be a time I can concentrate, but that time is not now, you just can’t do  everything at once ,so in the meantime I do what I need to do and try not to get depressed or run down by it and keep positive for the future I guess that’s how I’ve always been, there is a book I read years ago I think it was called photology but don’t hold me to it , it was about visualising your dreams seeing yourself somewhere and then creating a pass to proceed it and forgive the people who are damaging or forgive yourself for being a nuance to others if indeed you are let and known you never wanted to be   , we are but only one person with only so many hours of one day , I sometimes think robotic it’s the only way to dampen the creative flow because I can’t always leave that door open .

Also coming up this week I will be announcing some news on the publication of my stepping stones album that is available for download on itunes ,  so keep a watch out for this on my website and other sites … there could be a trip to the USA planned in the near future this I am excited about I’ve never made it west of the world yet !

I have many friends there though so may even go there anyways sometime ,but so many other things in front of me at moment a total upheaval of building works… but it will be worth it to sit in my office.. I already am thinking how I will set up, I will have a thinking wall for new songs and plans and maybe a little live lounge stage that would be fun ! I take some pictures before and after and when it all starts but its not that exciting taking pictures of builders bums , well some fun for some ! !

So that was my week really just a normal week of paper work and organising as well as moments of writing songs , working on one at the moment but I can’t tell you the title as it would kind of give it away what the songs about , think maybe today I get my guitar and write the lot as well as play around with my new Tablet , taking pictures and filming with it , such a better quality than my phone and laptop so thrilled , here are some pictures of my morning walk  that I took with my phone the beauty of the end of November

Cheers To all new followers and hope you all have a lovely week until next write up next week. Emma Lock ! X

Diary Entry 1

Diary Entry 1

 

So I have been pondering about writing my musical diary for a while now and have decided with much consideration to publish my musical journey now rules, number 1 was keep everything about music well this is easier said than done! But everything I do deliver apart from my family to do with my art and music so how do I follow and keep within the rules that I set myself?

So I will try my best to not cross the lines. So where do I start? What do you want to know?

 

I’ll start with today that’s a good place to start, every day at the moment I plan to work on music! I plan to write songs, I plan to look at all the songs that I have, I plan to write albums as I can write many song. Being a prolific songwriter I don’t really need to try very hard to write but I do know I need to practice, practice makes perfect and even if it’s writing a few notes that it’s always helpful to focus the mind on work. So sometimes I sit in the studio and I just write whatever comes into my head at the time.

Sometimes I sit in the studio and listening to old tracks and wondered to myself if I can do any better then I think of course I can I just need the right track and the right time and the right producer.

 

The world of music for me is a beautiful place and escapism and excitement journey places I can go my mind these places that I go to take time to get to them, sometimes I just don’t have the time, Yet sometimes I choose not to go to those places, sometimes I think that maybe it’s because I can’t be doing with the emotions or that I’m tired from the days work, sometimes I think it’s hiding to nothing. This pointless process but then sometimes working towards something even if it’s something small can really be beneficial to your life and in the future to others as music has always helped people in many ways, whether it’s just today and expressing emotion or to dance with friends I always hope that my music reaches people in one way or another.

So I have found this app that can convert me talking into text so now I can talk  to you, I can really express how I’m feeling and what I really want to say, this is going to be really helpful when I’m in the studio writing songs on the guitar because sometimes I write words that is so magical and within seconds the lost this can be tragic and very frustrating because some lyrics are just so magical and I cannot dig them back out of me as much as I try to re-sing a song or backtrack some of the words that I had written down is lost forever in this darkness that even light cannot reach.
