It’s been ages since the last update, but here’s a new song to make up for it.
I was playing around in dropped-D tuning and the basic tune came out pretty painlessly. I also play an irish tin flute in the interludes. Semira sings beautifully as always and I’m really happy with the outcome.
Last night, I released the first version of my new app, Chain. It’s a motivational tool based on a method by Jerry Seinfeld. It motivates you to do things you want to do daily, e.g. “Read book” or “Do stretches”. Each day you do something, you mark it in Chain and after a while you have so many days in a row that you care more about breaking the chain than doing the actual task.
Chain is very much in the development stage and will evolve rapidly.
It shares accounts with my previous app, Todo, so if you signed up for it, your login works with both apps. You can find it at siirre.com/chain.
“Your only job next is to not break the chain,” as Jerry says. “Don’t break the chain.”
Photographer Nina Merikallio was featured in the latest issue of 125 Magazine and she also did a short film for them. She wanted to use one of my songs for the music and I was happy to make a special edit of the track. Check it out. Like our Läkerol film posted before, this was also shot in Lithuania. They have a lot of interesting locations there.
The official post about the film can be found here. And below is the original song.
Last week, we shot a commercial for Läkerol in an abandoned mansion near Vilnius, Lithuania. The place used to be a soviet era hospital and there was still some medicine cabinets left. The director, Jalmari Helander, offered 50 euros if I tried some pills from the cabinets, but I declined. I could’ve used 50 euros, though. Here’s the film and some shots from the shoot.
