I find the landscape of this instant music phenom becoming more ridiculous and time consuming. I’m from the old school. You get with the producer, sketch out the music theme and line up, session with the engineers and turn it over to be cooked and gone.
Presently I have to then get the music uploaded to the distributors, and blast the net saying that I’ve finished a piece. Immediately it becomes yet another mp3 blast on some cloud and I get hit with someone making the same announcement regarding their work. It wears me completely out.
The creativity is drained by sheer overload of social posting and blurbs. The inevitable balancing act ensues. Choose to actually make decent music, or spend hours just talking about it. wow
Currently involved in the hardest part of any project. The beginning. We’ve mused, fused and used the remnants of the ultimate artist canvas. There’s a nucleus of cats that want the music to be given back to it’s source. The actual masses. Unique ? no, pain in the ass? yes.
To take in consideration the saturation of garbage and fluff passing for music these days. Add in the corporate mindset of profit over all else and you’ve faced the dragon of fear and doubt.
We’re starting something good. Intent and bent on turning a page. So stay tuned an support our efforts. It’ll be worth the stamina.
