I have lost too many friends and known of too many suicides over recent years, I am a full supporter of project 84. I have felt suicidal myself and still at times do. I have always had a deep passion for drumming and know it has saved my life many times or the band iv been in has saved it and they dont even know it. At hard times I felt the world was better without me my family didn't care, no friends to talk to and let down by the system, nothing was stopping me apart from knowing I had to be on that drum throne for a gig next week and the month later. Every gig booked and rehearsal gave me something to hold on to and be here for. Iv dreamt of creating a space to help divert the mind away from the dark space its in and to feed emotion through music or an instrument. sometimes it can be the only way to talk in your own way in the language of music. Life can't exist without music. we don't want the agonising conversations letting out your emotions over tea and biscuits, that itself sounds depressing. we want to see it on stage kicking butt !!
If you can't play an instrument thats even better, with the Elementary sector the mind can focus learning the instrument for a few weeks, months or years until you find your playing your instrument. Meet new people maybe make a band together, go solo and indulge in your own therapy of music. so many doors can open to someone that's walked through our 1 door , if we had one for those to walk through ?? which is where im asking for your help to make the dream come true and hopefully reduce the local statistics over the last 5 years.
