3rd Anniversary of SmiteMatter.com blog

Yowdy Hall!
Things have been crazy off the rails for me lately.

I thought I’d take a break from blogging and making music after my second album Chapters released.
It kind of went on a bit longer than I intended. Now that my blogs 3rd anniversary has come by recently among many personal distractions, I can start getting back to it all.
Part of my extended break was due to a sudden living situation problem. Our slum lord has allowed the property we rent a portion of go into default with the bank. So that stressed things a bit. One thing after another.
Long story short we have to find a new place to live by the end of July.
Fun!

On a positive note I’ve begun work as a Community Manager for a cool flight sim developer, Flying Development Studio. They make the Infinite Flight app.
The work is actually very fun, but also limited hours. Not enough to live on or even move yet, but hey it’s better than nothing. I can’t complain as it’s something I really enjoy doing and it may grow in to something more.

Back to making music and writing reviews.
I have had some interesting new music apps come my way and am exploring them with the intention to prepare a few new reviews. Apps like B-Step, Crystaline, Bird Stepper, and GliderVerb to name a few.

I am also formulating some sort of a EP plan for new music. I want to do some experimental drone style ambient or “space music” stuff.
I know it’s not exactly a popular choice but it’s the sort of thing I want to do, and haven’t done much of yet. At least not any I’ve released.

So thank you for stopping by even though I’ve been under a rock. I was surprised to see that visits to this page (oddly) increase while I was silent. Ok, cool. Maybe that’s a hint? Haha.

For better or worse, like it or not, I’ll be posting new things again very soon.

Thanks again.
