Well, thought about writing for magazins ?
I don't know about it, but I guess you have at least one good (maybe underground) musik-maker-magazin there, have you?
The story about your article reminds me of how I used to write my own record-contracts when I was younger...
Pathetic? Don't know, maybe, but it was fun anyway.
I wrote all the perfect conditions into it, like, being bound for just as long as I wanted to and silly stuff like this.
It was the time when I just started with writing music or,
let's say, experimenting around with it. 14 or something.
I had massive problems to 'let go' maybe you're aware of this problem. I started to write and I never got a song finished because I always got stuck at some certain part that would not fit.
And then I got frustrated with it all and stopped it.
Later then, a pal told me he knew what I needed:
A kick in the ass.
So I wrote myself those contracts to set me under pressure, I gave myself three months time to cool at least 10 songs, and so I learned to get over it. It just worked from there on.
This is, why I try to get only really essential PlugIns and stuff.
Half a year ago I noticed how my plugin-folders grew instantly and I began to get stuck again, so I threw all the crap out untill there were 2 softsynthies left and only one sampler-plugin.
The other editing-fx were okay.
Therefor I now have a huuuge section of dynamic-editing-tools, it's a mess... *sigh* Time to sort again...
Great, I don't have the faintest idea how I got to that theme again. Mhm. anyway.
Lev Termen, sounds familiar, wasn't a relative of Bob Moog though, eh? ;-)
Oh and this shock you predicted, if you ask meeeee... It already hit.
The reason why it's not seeable this good is the media again.
But, I mean, just look at the record-selling-statistics.
And that has nothing to do with mp3 and the web. At the early 90's till mid90's there was a massive breach in the usual sales-statistic.
Thank you, POP.
Pop turned, it was a small harmless overground
almost-sensation at the eighties. But as the competition raised (mostly technically, no kidding) and all Pop music now started to sound EXACTLY the same, people got used to it.
The problem is, that there are people who don't care about music.
I'm sure everyone here knows at least one or two.
Mostly those guys/girls are this career-type-people.
Maybe there is just no place for music in their lives, and IF, it's Pop, for sure.
Sad, if you ask me, because people who don't hear music
(with their hearts), won't ever get this amazing feeling like
"Weeaw, you won't guess what I found in the record-shop today!" or "I can't believe it, my favourite band is comeing to play at MY town!" or just "I love this song so much, I feel happy whenever I hear it".
I hear music all the day, I hear it at work, I hear it in my private time, I hear it at my side-job, nothing would work without it.
Yes, I feel sorry for these people who don't know how music 'feels'.
Right, this stuff at TV isn't HipHop or anything.
Don't even get me started on R'n'B, HipHop at least WAS music before it became mainstream and Pop, R'n'B was BORN in TV. A production for the masses (who are asses as we all know).
Well, there actually is HipHop, we have like a small scene here, but it's crap due to the facts I mentioned above.
They stand still musically and try to wring out the last drop of pressure on the drums. It's all for the dancefloor.
And these are the dancefloors I hate.
Okay, I urgently want to make some noises now,
P.s.: Of course, who cares, but I wonder that we don't get to see any other opinions here?
