‘Horizon’ by Dean Yhnell
Producer of music, comedy and education.
Has lockdown changed you? How? Why?
I feel like its made me step back and evaluate myself and direction. I'm a more spiritual, less reactive person now. I've had the time to follow some of the passions that I wouldn't of before due to being so busy with work.
What made you smile or brought you joy in lockdown? Can you explain it?
I got to spend so much extra time with my family. My little boy was born in July and I was about to support my wife.
Have you changed since lockdown? Tell me why.
I am less fearful and I've realised that I can keep moving forward if I adapt . I've always believed in hard work , hard work, hard work, which has been great and got me to where I am now by constantly going the extra mile. Now I'm chilled and I realised inspiration and direction comes to me if I'm not stressing. I've finally started my comedy channel setting which I've been talking about for years.
What is the story behind your hand art?
This track Horizon was written last year during lockdown. It is a collaboration with an amazing musician and friend of mine Rebecca Warner. It fuses classical elements with electronic music.
Is there anything else you would like to share?
Stay Positive and keep moving forward. Think of happy thoughts when you catch yourself slipping. Switch of the news, read a book, go out for a walk. Life can be whatever you want it to be if you form the habits of that character you've envisioned.
