Repeat Hire Rate editor / freelance writer / idea generator / music producer

I started freelance writing at 18, building a database of over 150 creative reviews on new electronic music releases, and outsourcing web forums. Within 6 months my first 1900 word article on a form of Electronica was published, in worldwide magazine ATM. As an approximate of my writing experience until now at age 26: I have had exceeding 150 creative, thought-through articles officially published, and have written for 12 sources external to my own. Everything I do is aimed transcendentally, and covers more than what I specialise in. I've studied Music and the Arts with the Open University successfully, and have read many books on sociology, psychology, music and what interlinks them. I am consequently an established music producer who goes under the name Foci's Left. I've collaborated with Simon Scott of Slowdive who worked with Brian Eno in the 1990s, my first three albums have received critical acclaim from reputable sources (Fluid Radio, Nightshift etc) and I am henceforth always looking for people to collaborate with from the Arts, whether it be getting the music ready for release, working on artwork, commissioning specialised press, or joint producing music together. I am very flexible with my work, can take criticism, push hard to deadlines, and ultimately do my best with whatever job. I won't do you wrong either.

Forum and blog analysis

Oct 2004 - Jun 2014 (9 years, 8 months)
I am very active on certain forums and blogs of choice, and observe many trends, patterns and focal points, with consideration for several views, giving me discussion time that's worthwhile and balanced. This has enabled me to internalise a work ethic of "less is more", producing work with high quality.

The Dastardly Diaries

Muttley SE
My own zine, produced as ZIP files with PDFs for specified subjects. The first was immediately successful. The second hit over 700 downloads in the opening month by word of mouth. It was a three-tier system, utilising digit and symbol data entry, a 142 interlinked quotation system acting as meta data with its included audio, and all PDF titles weaved into the code of the audio file names to create a complex idiosyncracy system. The third zine struck a balance between the two preceding. Issue 4 is planned.
