Posted on 29/04/2020 by Gary Numan Making Music

The Chosen on YouTube
Posted on 26/04/2020 by Gary Numan Making Music
Very disappointed to find out this morning that someone has put The Chosen up on YouTube. For me to be letting new songs out to Making Music fans before they are released is actually a huge concession on my part and I've trusted that people would understand and respect that. Arguably I was pretty st ...

Video Update. The Chosen (AFv2). April 23, 2020
Posted on 24/04/2020 by Gary Numan Making Music
Ade Fenton has now spent some time working on 'The Chosen' so I thought you might like to hear where it's gone, how it's developed. As you'll hear on the update a few things still to think about with it, some small changes to make, but this is getting pretty close to being finished as far as recordi ...

The Gift (So far). March 20, 2020
Posted on 21/03/2020 by Gary Numan Making Music
I hope you are all healthy and doing everything you can to keep it that way. Updates about music seem somewhat trivial in these frightening times but I've done one anyway. This update looks at a new song I'm working on called The Gift. As you know the Intruder album essentially takes the point of vi ...

Video Update. March 11, 2020. Unhappy
Posted on 12/03/2020 by Gary Numan Making Music
Hello,Not the most upbeat update I'm afraid. I'm not happy with where I am but I'll let the video explain. Also, I don't think I've shown you the lyrics to the last three songs, 'I Am Screaming', 'Betrayed' and 'Saints And Liars', so I've added them here. Hopefully I'll have more new stuff to play y ...

July 19th, 2019. Films (3 of 3)
Posted on 19/07/2019 by Gary Numan Making Music
This is the third update from the film I made a few days ago. This one talks about a lot of things but I can't actually remember what about now (sorry about that, I'm now in the UK briefly but I fly to Croatia in a few hours). It also plays a few bits of music I've been working on to build up a libr ...

MM. Audio Update. June 21, 2019. Chorus Idea 1 (Aeon)
Posted on 21/06/2019 by Gary Numan Making Music
This is the first attempt at the chorus for the Aeon/Intruder song. For me it's not working but I wanted you to hear it so you can see where it goes to after this. My own feelings are is that it sounds like something from the Jagged era, so outdated. I have a feeling that the chorus structure I'm si ...

MM. Audio Update. June 18, 2019
Posted on 19/06/2019 by Gary Numan Making Music
The song I've been working on for a while now, and played you a little of last time, now has a verse vocal. It's rough, but definitely good enough to give you an idea. The lyrics are close but might have some small changes before it's finished. Tomorrow I'll be working on the chorus melody and, if I ...

To those of you that were a part of the previous Pledge Music campaign for the Savage album this will be vaguely familiar, but without the annoying upset that befell some of you at the end. I very much hope that the problems some of you had with Pledge will be entirely absent with Making Music. ...
