Ernesto Delirium – Demo

Here’s a video of a demo I’m working on after releasing my first album through Spotify, Apple Music, and beyond.

I’m still on the writing process and working on the beat. I don’t know yet where is going to led me. It’s a fun process nonetheless.

I’ve got myself a Maschine Mk 3 as a Christmas gift. It’s a great production tool. Also it’s highly kinetic, which is something I’ve been enjoying from the unit.

I’m hoping to keep writing blog posts during the Winter. However, most of my time will be spent on working the craft.

Please let me know what you think. Feel free to drop me a message using the contact form, or leave a comment below.

Thank you for reading and watching.

Checking-In

These past two months were intense. I’ve worked less on music and more at school and work. However, I’ve worked on an 11 song EP completely in Spanish. It’s going to be released on 12/14/2018 through Spotify and Apple Music. 

Each of the tracks are in a spoken-word style. The topics are about love, heartbreak, and mental health. I’m thinking of translating them in English, while trying to keep the main idea. That’s a different challenge of its own, however.

I’ve been listening to rap from Spain. It’s great and the topics are diverse. This has been my inspiration lately. I’m thinking on writing more again in Spanish. Focusing on more Poesía. 

School is almost over, and the winter break will be dedicated to the craft.

Currently reading:

  • Man’s Search For Meaning – by Viktor Frankl
    • This book is changing how I see things in life. I’m about to finish part 1, but the descriptions get so intense at times that I have to stop reading at night because I know I’ll be awake, full of emotions.
  • The Art of Taking Action: Lessons from Japanese Psychology – by Gregg Krech
    • For those curios about Morita Therapy, this book is a great start. I’m almost done with the book, and it has solid advice, and I’m applying some of it already. It offers lots of perspective.

Currently listening:

  • Almanauta – by Nach
    • Nach for me is one of the best rappers around. His lyrics tell stories, and this album has great collaborations. If you speak Spanish, highly recommended. 

  • Lofi hip hop beats – beats to study/relax/game to – by Chillhop Music 
    • This Spotify playlist has been my go to when I’m doing homework, writing, or research. I’m trying to emulate that style with my music. I’m working on it.

I’ll get to write more often during the break. Thank you for reading and for your comments. Also, this blog has reached its first 50 Followers! Thank you to all you who take the time to read, and to comment on the blog.

Lastly, I’ve added a Contact page, in case you would like to send me a message.

Good Night

If only you knew
How much I need you
How much I miss you
The doubt kills me

You don’t know how much
I remember when I kissed you
And stared at your lips

I felt them

And touched your hands
I wish it lasted forever
But I know it wasn’t true

Everything goes slow without you
And when I’m with you
Everything goes fast
When I wake up I don’t believe it

It was just a dream
You and I are a dream
Something that our minds created
And it only lives inside of them

But like every good dream
We wake up
We think about it
And at the end, we forget it

Good night.

Outlier

Outlier

“You’re an outlier,” she told me. “You’ve achieved so much compared to others,” she added. I couldn’t hold it. My eyes started tearing. My voice was cracking. I couldn’t reply to her. I’ve heard that before. Continue reading “Outlier”
