DaveX, back again?

March 11, 2018

20180310_233603It seems like I have written a lot of these “I’m back!” posts, haven’t I? (Here’s my last one, from 2015, ha.) But oh– I can’t quit you. This week, I had to quit my job as Station Manager at WDBX. That has been a rough experience, and a story I have told seemingly without end in the days following. Perhaps I will write about it later. For now– an article in The Southern Illinoisan will have to suffice. Since then, I have been thinking about how best to move forward. My recent return to performing and making music has certainly been on my mind, and for now, I think it is safe to say that “moving forward” might look a lot like focusing on my future in sound. I guess it would be smart to admit that I don’t know exactly what that will look like, but I’m pleased to be rediscovering my enthusiasm and excitement about everything around it– noise, performance, recording, listening, sound in literature, found sounds, hidden sounds, soundwalks, collage– you name it! I’m going to resist putting too much of a fine point on this just yet, and for now, I will just try to enjoy the process.
