Wishing a Happy New Year to anyone reading this! I hope this message finds you in good health and with great aspirations for the year ahead!
I want to thank everyone who visited this page, commented, emailed or got in touch using social media over the last 6 months (I’ve done my best to reply to everything). It has been so nice to hear from people who share the same musical interests.
Bearing in mind that this is a VERY small page about using music theory to analyse K-Pop(!), the site stats are beyond my wildest dreams:
Since June, the website has produced 11 full analysis articles, with well over 20,000 words which have been read (at the time of writing) 1,788 times by 769 visitors (averaging 2.3 articles read per visitor) from 58 different countries. The most read analysis article was Monogram’s ‘The Child’, the least read was an older update bulletin which I have since deleted.
The stats are microscopic in proportion to established music blogs, but that’s not the point I’m trying to make. It’s overwhelming that you took time to open a single article, even if it was just this update. My plan was simply to reinvigorate a passion for analysing songs I actually enjoy – to be able to share that journey with other people is a privilege.
I intend to continue writing articles in 2018, but it could be a few more weeks before you see anything new. I’ve had a few work-related adjustments, which have kept me away from the keyboard (I recently changed jobs, moved house and relocated to Asia)! Apologies for the delay and thanks for your patience and understanding!
Once again, Happy New Year and Thank You! What was your favourite song of 2017? Which groups/composers are you looking forward to hearing from in 2018? Drop me a message, I’ll do my best to say hi back!
