Alternative? Yes. Ah, I see. I can only pick up to three genres of influence, which is of course pretty stupid. So, all of them.
This is something I did some years ago. I'm not sure it's good but it gives some indication of 'direction'
Though I think I can play the guitar relatively well I don't see myself as particuarly au fait with theory. In looking for potential collaborators I believe enthusiasm and a willingness to experiment is paramount (technial prowess and theoretical nous always help).
At the moment, I only have my classical guitar in London, which with my laptop and midi keyboard has served me well thus far. I like the idea of taking instruments to the park (I have no space in the flat I share with other peope) and trying to reproduce almost impossible to reproduce sounds. Imagine Battles unplugged, perhaps.
Well, that's how we'll write the songs, the melodic or rhythmic core. Then we move somewhere else for fleshing out. I guess if the acoustic album sells well we can quit our jobs and invest in a studio. Got to not think little (I have used litotes in order to avoid obvious cliche that would only render this aspiration null)
