Most of those guys are quite difficult to get along with and I doubt very much whether they would be up for collaborations and all this and that. Even if you did manage to work on a project with one of them you'd probably find that the album would disappear without trace, completely diluted and overshadowed by the follow up album composed by a bunch of Swedes containing sub standard dross and released just a couple of Months after your effort.
Well, I thought I'd ask. Do you write library and/or production music yourself? Is the money any good?
I've been working on some interesting dramatic piano ideas lately which, IMO, would be ideally suited to jingles and the like. Not to mention documentaries. I could certainly see this type of stuff being used on at least 1 or even 2 big promos. The sky's the limit really. I don't actually have real pianos here, but have just purchased something eminently usable called 'real piano vst'.
But what you say about sinking without trace troubles me and perhaps dampens my spirits somewhat. Having said that, my enthusiasm is still strong and I am still interested in working with like minded individuals and real drummers. I am keen, a good worker and with the right impetus (and once refuelled in an appropriate manner) I am sure I can come up with the goods.
I am sure, that after much hard work (and boosey sessions down at The Cavendish Arms!!) I could come up with enough riffs to ensure a complete and thorough command of the genre and devise something powerful, raw and exciting - like Metallica's Carpe Diem or Fade to Black, well perhaps there are better examples but you get the idea. I would like to create something which dazzals...something which dramatically spits 'Fire' from the speakers!
I just need that chance.
