Scenes from Walden Pond
Thank you for visiting my music pages here on Soundclick.com! Also, please be sure to check out my blogspot at www.myworshipjourney.blogspot.com - Thanks!
Why this name?
It is my name. Several years ago (when I started on Mp3.com in 1999) I used my production name of "Soulspace Music." (See "Band History" below) There are still remnants of links floating around in cyberspace with that name attached to several of my songs.
Do you play live?
I've been a choral/general music teacher since 1985 as well as a part-time worship leader in my local church. I've been involved in one way or another with music since I was a small boy, creating and playing music has been, and always will be my passion...
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The internet has helped artists - especially independent artist such as myself, get our "art" to the world.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If the opportunity would arise - Yes. I would really enjoy writing music for a outdoor type video, kids show or film soundtrack. I have written music for several small projects over the last several years, and it has given me a chance to stretch my horizons...
I have been writing/arranging/composing for nearly 30 years. I've played all kinds of music - That's how I was able to pay my way through college, by playing music on weekends. I became a member of the Mp3.com "artist community" in 1999 - If anyone remembers the original Mp3.com site - there was an abundance of great original music on there. Unfortunately, I feel that the "powers to be" within Mp3.com, became too over confident and pushed the company too far, too fast - and it failed. Many good independent artists suffered as a result. I used to list my music under the name "Soulspace Music" until I decided to just list it under my name as D. E. Farmer. I thank you for listening - Enjoy the music.
Saint-Saens, Ray Lynch, Will Ackerman, Tom Aragon, Billy Joel, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, Tommy Walker, Neil Diamond, the Beatles, John Williams, Bassic (Martin Lindhe).... a whole bunch of em! I really enjoy all kinds of music believe it or not and often find inspiration from embracing diversity.
Anywhere near the beach or mountains!
Korg Triton (Extreme), Roland VS Recorder, JV-1010,Finale 2008, Ovation and Yamaha guitars, my computer etc. etc.. I love to try different instruments too - I even have an african rain stick that I've used a couple of times!
Just enjoy the music - if you like it - let me know! I think the song that really describes my life and passion right now is the song "Heart of a Servant" It came from somewhere deep inside...
Being lazy at the beach - I love it!
I like to play my guitar almost anywhere... lol.
