Music, Entitlement

Music is queer... You can hear it everywhere, intentionally or not. It encourages: to think, to dance... it drains your mind or fills it up with pictures. Sometimes it's annoying - especially if the context is wrong.


Making music was passion for me from the beginning, uncoupled from any objectives. There is no superelevated arty entitlement , nor artificial. And no commercial: it's still a hobby.


Making music may be therapeutical, but interpretation: nope. So, engagement is end in itself, not search for meaning. If my music entertains you, suits you a bit or is not too boring in the end - it's ok for me. I have done something for me and it feels good anyway. It may not always be what I've intended, but near to it - it is the result of a simple calculation: what can be done within the normal daily madness, with all those familial and job-related commitment?

About this site

This site is a gimmick somehow. I have spent a lot of time (and other ressources...) to find a new approach, equipment, software etc. Something that can be used at home - in the bedroom - I think a lot of musicians know what I am talking about.

But it is difficult to define the right context, it is often just an imagination of "something" with variable limits. My imagination was "to make music" - I like to combine or arrange instruments, sounds, ideas rather than achiving mastery on a single instrument. Therefore I spent a lot of time to test "possibilities" to get a set up to go on with fun. The context was an outcome of itsself: "Bedroom recording". Compact, flexible - to be able to start where you are in a fast and simple way. Creating moods or "serve" them - with equipement charming your palm and eyes, but first and foremost your ears. Maybe someone else is interested how I reached my aim...

About Floyd

I am living in Bonn, Germany - and I am called differently. So Floyd is my Alter Ego if it comes to music. From a professional point of view there is no connection given to music, it is just a hobby. But I am working with computers, software and their adoption and my exposure with these is a creative one. And using only the wherewithal of it. When it comes to music: it has to be haptic, software has no soul.


After playing in different bands as a bassist and singer years ago, the time came where I had to concentrate on my job and familiy,stopped making music for nearly 15 years. And suddenly woke up between bits and bytes - making music seemed to be a completely new thing! Sometimes still thinking of my cool Portastudio 4-track-cassette recorder and the workflow... tried to save those parts which went good or made fun at all.


BTW: the name was contrived by my - at that time - 3 year old son: I asked him about an euphonic name I should choose when making music. He answered "Floyd Groener". For whatever reason.
