2017 News I feel it coming. I am feeling a surge of inspiration. I have been trying out new ideas in the studio almost daily. Time is what I have needed and 2017 is finally becoming the year to make consistent new music. Nemeton 3 has been on a prolonged hiatus but 2017 should be a very exciting year. So far Nemeton 3 has gotten quite a makeover. Firstly, the name changed from Nemeton III to Nemeton 3 just to keep things simple and make it far easier to find music on various sites. Second, the website got a major makeover with a new logo. this is a new beginning for Nemeton 3. What to expect: I have launched a YouTube channel beyond the usual single and album releases. There will be more exclusive and unique music on Youtube. Be sure to subscribe to the channel. Read more here. I have so many musical ideas in the works and I have a number new ambient songs nearly ready for release. There should be a regular pipeline of new releases coming out nearly monthly. New Adventures in Recording: I have recently upgraded my Sonar recording software to the latest Professional version which gives me many new options. I am a long time Cakewalk user and I am excited to try out some new features and learn new tricks. Recording software has a huge learning curve and is a big barrier for a musician to get music distributed. But once you learn how to do it then you can be more productive in music production. I have 3 songs near release that need finishing touches. the goal is 1 new song a month. Looking forward to the challenge!
