This is my site on which I will share lots of my photos, artwork, ideas, music, and my academic pursuits...well...I create a lot!
I am Dr. Zoe Marlowe in Istanbul, Turkey.
Welcome to the fascinating world I am Creating...Enjoy scrolling down. You will see my photos, my music blog (with links to my videos), and more..
In school I studied photography, art, graphic design, music, technology, programming, performance arts, ceramics, English.
I use many different mediums, but I love photographing nature the most.
I enjoy traveling in my spare time and many of my pieces are directly influenced by these travels especially in nature. I love recreating plants and wildlife and other visual beauty in my photography and art.
The title cut from my upcoming CD "Never Too Late". This was my first time practicing the bass part that I wrote for the song. This was my very first video of me actually playing my bass. In the videos that follow, you will see me going back and forth between my 4-string bass and my 5-string. It is really getting easier to transition between my two basses as I continue to learn songs...
Blast from the past song and the first 'commercial' rock tune I actually taught myself on bass. I'm a new bass player, usually I play piano or guitar, sometimes cello. But, after years of really wanting to learn bass I decided to buy one and actually try to teach myself... so far I am not terrible, I'm happy to report!!
Such a special song in my life from 2010/2011 and to celebrate my attempting to learn 5-string bass (my Xmas present to myself in 2020), I decided to try and learn this beautiful song. I didn't do my best playing since it was my first time playing the 5-string, but I really did enjoy playing the song tremendously. As I get better (hopefully) I will upload my latest songs and covers I'm practicing...
So on this cover I was starting to get into a bit more complicated bass parts than previously on my 5-string. I love all Satriani songs to be honest, his basslines are always amazing (because he has amazing bass players) and this song, as simplistic as it seems, has some challenges to deal with. However, I managed the song but I plan to improve steadily with practice. This recording isn't great because I noticed a lot of feedback from my amp on this. Live and learn!
A wonderful and fun song with a great rhythm. It was pretty easy except for the middle 8 section, which gave me a little trouble, but, all in all I really had fun with this. Upcoming you will see some different genres of music also. I'm planning rock, blues, and of course more 'prog' from some awesome guitar and bassists.
I wanted to try to play to a Turkish pop or rock song so I chose this really nice mix of this awesome Murat Boz song by Erdem K. I love the song it is not as easy as it sounds to play bass to, though... I tried not to make too many mistakes..I feel like I am making progress...I have to keep practicing...it's the only way to reach my goal.
