My name is Richard Johan Nilsen.
I write music by the name Jayard.

I'm writing, recording and mixing
every single detail in my bedroom..

Do you want to know "why this"?

One year later…

It has been roughly a year since my last post… This is a result of ‘Jayard’ gradually falling entirely under the definition of ‘hobby’ – “An activity or interest pursued outside one’s regular occupation and engaged in primarily for pleasure.” – instead of being an overpowering task. My ‘regular occupation’, which in this case is University (and other activities), has been a major part of my past year and has leaded to a lack of leisure time.

However, Jayard is meant to be my hobby, and it will remain that way. So the music I make will be posted here in the future, but it will not be as regularly as it was during my time in High School.

Late/Early | 5am

I’m working late.. Or should I say early? Both is fine actually. But my point is that I’ve been working with my music the whole night trough. And it’s starting to get bright outside. My creativity makes me forget the time, which is great! The most precious time is when the creativity is flowing – it’s the greatest feeling of all. My only concern now is that I might not get up before dinner. Or maybe if I’m fortunate I’ll get dinner as breakfast. But enough writing, I need to get to sleep before my family wakes up…

Good night! Or should I say "Good morning"? confusing..

Filming a MusicVideo

Last month we filmed a music video for a song called “Keep On Let Go”. This is a video which I will use to back me up on my drum exam, in order to make my performance a slightest bit more interesting. Can’t wait to post it all!

Here is some piczzzz:

Of course, it contains some cruising-clips with my pennyboard!

Few days left.

Within a week I’ll be without any kind of computer. By then both my mac and pc, will be sold. I’m working tactically with the music, so that I can get the structures done by then. And after that, I’ll get time to work with lyrics and vocal stuff, but the minutes are few.

My everyday results are surprising. I didn’t imagine that good sound when I started off this project. But maybe that computer problem will give the project a short delay…

I’ve done good and bad things since last post:

I’ve recovered from sickness!

I’m working hard with my last exam today. It’s an oral exam and I’m going to present my project tomorrow. It’s a religion exam, and my task is to discuss the significance of religion in our time.
