Who?I’m Damian Counsell. I run two businesses. counsell.com does bioinformatics and Web development. This Website is about counsell media. This includes my singing, music, multimedia, and training work.
As with my geekier work, I try to use open source software whenever possible, including WordPress of course, which is the content management system running this site. As well as the paid-for proprietary DAW, I use the free audio editor Audacity and the similarly multi-platform video editing package Shotcut.
Currently I sing with The Disco Prophets, a seven-piece East Midlands-based disco and funk band). In early 2018, I’ll be out and about more locally (in the Tamworth area) with a reggae covers trio, Marley And More, and a pop-rock duo.
As well as blogging about this live performance work, I’ll also be posting YouTube video tutorials, mostly about singing.
Music hard- and software
You’ll be able to read gear reviews, recommendations, and tips about here.
I produce multimedia for the Web. I’ll be sharing select examples of that here too.
