About a year ago I realised once again, I am doing this for people ... for you. I want this music to reach all of you who need to hear this. Be it one or one billion. I also realised I want to be with you and look you in the eye as much as possible when you do hear it. I want to play it to you.
Since I didn't know how to play the piano, there was really one possible option.
Today I want to tell you the story how the name - Daycleier found me. I have spoken about it with very few people, but after some recent happenings regarding the story, I feel this needs to go out. It happened a long time ago and still feels pretty magical and weird.
The time has finally come for me to officially start publishing chapter two of Humanlove. It has been ten months from start of writing the first one and I really feel everything has been said and I can move on. And more importantly, new stuff is coming more and more that needs to be expressed.
What remains to be done with chapter one, is to work with the overall sound a little and more importantly, bring in other instrument players. As you have heard, there are many string instruments present in chapter one and these need to be played by actual humans as opposed to machine. It is Humanlove for Pete's sake :). So that's the plan for the next following months. To find people, form a quartet and start recording the string instruments. Let's see how it goes :).
I've felt for quite a while now, that I am starting to reach a milestone with "Humanlove". It felt like the first part of it is nearing it's completion. But I wasn't sure of it until I saw a dream...
When I started the project, I envisioned a bit what I would like to accomplish with this project. So I set some challenges for myself.
I don't know if I complete even half of them, but as they say "aim for the stars, you might end up on the moon" :). Or maybe I will, who knows!? Only the time will tell.
So, now I decided to publish them here, for you to see how I progress going towards completing them. It's also good to have some social pressure.
Here they are:
A long time has gone by since the last update. It's not that nothing happened with the piece, it was just that there was a lot of different clips coming that didn't fit together. So I decided to wait a bit until there would be a bit more solid thing to release.
Now I have something. Many clips were left out, because they are still in very early stages, but the latest version is here.

Many, many years ago I created a very short clip that I called "The Book of Times". It had a very strong feeling in it for me. I remember using words "I dream that I could just write this kind of music" etc. I knew, it carried a strong story on it's own, but since it was completely different from everything that I had written before and also after, it just waited it's time. Now the time has come...
