We Want You!

Marionette’s Manifesto is looking for a small group of artists who make Rock (Art, Alternative, Folk, Indie, Blues) music.

Marionette’s Manifesto is looking for a small group of artists who make Rock (Art, Alternative, Folk, Indie, Blues) music.


Are you inspired by bands such as Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, King Crimson, Genesis, Radiohead or Soundgarden?

Then send us some demos today to contact.marionettesmanifesto@gmail.com (please see our demo policy before sending anything). Marionette’s Manifesto is less of a label and more to be a collective of like minded musicians who make similar music. We would be working together to promote each others releases whilst retaining the rights and income from the music we make.


Goals:

  • To Network with like minded independent bands and solo artists and promote each other’s music, helping each other grow our fan base
  • To promote the music of said artists through the website and social media. The artists music is actually distributed by them through an online store (i.e. bandcamp), they retain all the rights and income from the music.
  • To release periodic label compilations compiled and released by the artists themselves. We all choose our favourite songs released on the label to go onto the compilation. This is then shared by each member so they will not only be promoting their own music but also the music of the other artists.

What i am offering to the artists:

  • Each artist will receive a free CD tray inlay to be included in their album download. An optional Cassette J-Card can be created for them also. These would be included in the album downloads as extra so that fans can burn or record their own CD or cassette copy.
  • Free optional mastering of their music.
  • A Facebook group and discord server to congregate with the other artists in, sharing demos of works in progress, finding other label artists to collaborate with on new projects etc…

If you think your music would fit in here or you want to learn more then please drop me an email or message me through the new Facebook page.

I look forward to hearing your music,

Joseph Bagwell

Recluse’s Handbook out Now !!!

My new album “Recluse’s Handbook” is now available for free on Soundcloud and Youtube, and is purchasable for £1 on my Bandcamp.

It’s taken a while to actually get this project finished and i am hoping that you all enjoy the music. Subsequently the album will be available on Spotify, Apple Music and various other online stores from 7th November, and CD copies of the album will eventually be available soon aswell from upcoming gigs.




My debut venture into the world of Rock music. This album is a good introduction to my musical style, drawn from influences including Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues and Jethro Tull to name a few.

So start the record, sit back and enjoy the ride that is “Recluses Handbook”

Recorded and Produced at Northbrook MET and my house.

Writing 20 minutes of Audio | Weekly Log 1 | 18th Sept 17 – 24th Sept 17 |

Here is the first of a series of logs to document the production process of a 20 minute track. The piece entitled “For the Sake of Patience” is to be handed in as a degree assignment but will also be released along with a second track in an EP a the end of the project when the track is finalized.

 

01
I began by creating midi tracks with various VST synthesizers and drum kits. I then started to record ideas down.

At the early stages i wasn’t sure what i wanted the piece to be. I knew i wanted it to be Electronic, but i didn’t know what styles and genres i would incorporate into the project. I also wanted to incorporate some rock influences into the piece by having some live drums in places and also guitar and bass guitar.

 

2
Next i sequenced all loops and tracked any additional parts to get a solid basis of the piece.

After doing all this, i had a solid piece of music to work on. Next step will be recording live drums for the appropriate sections and also Vocals, the latter of which will be recorded next week.

But Maybe i’m Ready for a new Single?

Second single from my upcoming album is here along with it’s B-Side “Lapse”, another piece from my Nebulae Music project.

The album will hopefully be up in a few months on Spotify, iTunes and all the rest…

FIRST SINGLE IS HERE!!!

As I am not far from finishing my first album “Recluses Handbook” I decided to release a single from the album. “Weightless” is a sad song and a happy song at the same time. The Band and I all enjoy playing this one live and hope you enjoy listening to it.

The B-Side “Recluses Lament” is an ambient piece recorded under Nebulae Music. I decided to release this with “Weightless” as i felt it had a similar contrasting mix of feelings.

Hope you enjoy both the single and b-side, links down below and more to come in the future…

Opening artist Christelle has an EP you should check out from April, thanks to the support of fans, friends, family and through crowdfunding. You can purchase the EP from iTunes here.

Funkzilla have also been busy writing with some new songs being added to the library, you can here their stuff on their Soundcloud page.


I just had to get my baby niece as she started crying. Now i have here sitting listening to Funkzilla’s Pre Jam which is awesome. Seriously check these guys out.

Anyway…

I have a few recording projects lined up. First being with Phantom of Eden. I have a few original songs for Phantom which not only we will play at the next gig but also hope to record as an EP or album. Also i hope to record my solo stuff soon as well!

In other new i have plans to start doing YouTube videos. I have been planning to re try my music review series Sound Scope of which three original episodes were recorded and were very shit. Thus i am re inventing it and hopefully it will be of interest to anyone. i may also plan some other videos to offer a better range of content.
