I added you because you seem to think like me. What kind of music interests you?

I like to write rhymes and I’m trying to get into producing beats, just need to stop spending my money on beer so I can buy some quality software. I’m really into rhythm and language, not so good with melody. I like to expose qualities of life in abstract ways.

High time for a smoke cloaking
Good toke that’ll close the door’s openings
Relax back in shambles fating the grey
Day time activist sleeping it away
Would snort coke if not for shore
Drinking acid, wish I could drop more
So I could toes sunken sand my cares away
Sing a song and give it bandwidth
Happy scratch itched,
becoming toothless.

Well I’ve been on a Beatles kick since i was about 9 but recently I have been listening to music like the dead weather which is probably my favorite newer band but I’m really just into any music that makes me think about things @danfontaine,

Right that’s my favorite quality of music as well. I particularly like music I can’t fathom – artists of trance.
Have you recorded any muzik? Play an instrument at all?

@onewithyomoma, that’s awesome, strings are legit. It’s so rewarding to record anything. Ever tried to compose an original song?

I am a huge Tool… fan, but my friend and I are working on getting material together for an album. We have one song on sound cloud as of now, but were moving slow because theres just two of us. https://soundcloud.com/thetracklessroad We got about 9 songs were working on though. If anybody wants to help out let me know. Our dream is to tour.

Nice lyrics btw @danfontaine

@ltwild3, I just checked out your soundcloud. Nice music, I like it. I can definitely hear the Tool influence in it. I liked Dying Breed a lot, I feel bringing in some guitar distortion halfway through to make it heavier would be awesome. That’s just my taste though, I still really like it the way it is so far.

@onewithyomoma, What kind of music are you thinking about making? A friend of mine got Fruity Loops Studio software to make electronic music. I’ve messed around on it a few times, and I’d like to make other genres as well, but there’s no way I can afford the software :(

@onewithyomoma, Artistic souls are never satisfied with their creations. They cannot meet their own standards, their creations are never as good as they want them to be.
The difference between the masters and the failed hobbyists, is that the masters finished their material, despite never manifesting the song’s full potential.

That’s the difference. Learn to finish things, and recognize that nothing will ever be perfect. Perfection is a delusive idea. Never chase perfection.

And yknow, after working on a song long enough to make it a proper song, you’ve become numb to it. It’s lost that shiny fresh feeling because you’ve heard it over and over.
To someone who’s never heard it before, it sounds just as good as it did to you when you came up with the original idea. Probably even better, in fact, because it’s a real song and not just an idea.

We, the artistic souls, will never recognize how good our creations are, they will always be lacking and severely flawed to our eyes and ears. But not to those who never saw or heard the original idea, which is everyone but the very artist.
We will always underestimate what we make.

Don’t be so hard on your own creation. Just start making sweet music. Nobody is good from the get-go, you need to practice and learn and grow if you want to make that stuff.
Even if the song you’re making sounds terrible, finish it and close the book. At least you’ve made a fucking song, all on your own. And that’s great.
The momentum will help you make a better song, which will produce even more momentum, and before you know it the rolling snowball is huge and incredibly fast.

“Love, love, love, THAT is the soul of genius” – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Gotta love this game.

@manimal, do you write music?

@onewithyomoma, Lots of it, music is my life and my life is music. I wrote my first finished song when I was 12, and yeah the stuff I wrote back then was absolute shit, fucking horrible if you ask me.
I’ve played in a bunch of bands since then, doing the lion’s share of composing. Lyrics aint really my thing though.

I’m a freelance songwriter and producer, and I’ve got a few music projects going. Mostly electronic stuff currently, although in the past I’ve tried most music styles.

I don’t write, but I can embellish peoples compositions pretty good. Improvisation is a rush because I have no idea what I will play, which means neither does anyone else. I’ve played on a good many studio projects, but none of them have been as personal as the most recent one, since I’ve been a part of how our music has evolved these past 3 years. It’s been called gypsy folk but I view it as a kind of fusion between folk, rock and soul. http://theswimmingmachine.com/

@alexishungry, Thanks, we do want to add an electric, and a full kit as well, were just short on devoted members so we just record the demos with what we have. We do plan on adding them when we can get into the studio though. Ill post a thread on here when we add some more.
