End of Summer tomorrow

Summer certainly is going out with a bang...We had a wonderful weekend of temperatures approaching 30C, very unusual for October in England. The last sunny day has been forecast for today with a change tomorrow and rain later in the week. Well, it was nice while it lasted!!!

The apples are now ready, so we've begun picking...The pear wine hasn't finished fermenting yet, so the apple wine will have to wait for a while. I don't think we'll be able to hang on to them for the cider press which is at the end of the month, so no Tumbledown scrumpy this year.

The Koi carp and assorted goldfish and common carp which were in the pond we inherited when we moved in have been given a very good home in a double filtered pond nearby. Our pond was a natural pond which had a liner fitted to make it into a carp pond. Unfortunately, it was far too big and had too many trees overhanging, which dropped leaves and twigs into it, to make it work. Also, the liner had water under it which lifted the liner and pulled it away from the side, resulting in a big drop in the level of water. So, we have decided to change it back to a natural pond by removing the liner and encouraging rushes and natural plants.

I'm keeping very busy musically...I have a couple of TV projects on the go which I will blog about soon. I've also heard that Banquet Royale, the short film, is finished and will be screening later this year. I'm busy on a couple of albums for Artful too and am now pretty nifty on Cubase 6 and Halion Sonic SE. I've also had a play with Melodyne which is an amazing program. It can analyse a polyphonic audio track so that you can get into the notes and change individual notes in a chord...Very clever!!!
