My mission in music is to help you achieve your unique vision. Over all these years I’ve been learning how to find sonic and musical approaches that emphasise one’s originality.
I learnt it the hard way, by testing tools and approaches that form my music palette on my own material. I failed numerous times, and it was crushing.
But then I simply got better at it. It was not an immediate transition, rather than a slow and long grind, and the only thing I can brag about here is that I simply did not give up.
I am keen to help you and your music by applying the experience that I’ve gained on my path. The only thing that I am absolutely certain in my future is that I will never stop growing this experience. This evolution is something that forms a core of my personality and hence my studio.
In this video, I talk about how we as heavy musicians and audio professionals should never stop learning. I provide 10 different approaches to learning in the field of heavy music and hope you find these useful.
This happens again. You see a shining post of another band killing it, opening with international acts, releasing a fantastic video, celebrating a sold out gig with their fans.
As you’ve been quiet, working on your new release for quite a few months now and not making that much progress rapidly (isn’t it damn hard to make music promptly hey?), you inevitably start comparing yourself with that band.
These thoughts lead you to an inevitable spiral of self-doubt, negativity, insecurity and sometimes even envy.
The scarcity mindset becomes real. Music business is ruthless to us, creatives. So much pressure and so much stress brings weak thoughts to even the strongest of us. And we sometimes may think that the success of that other band is our own failure.
It is super important to understand that this is the main mistake in this line of thought. Just because someone released a successful EP absolutely doesn’t mean that your won’t be successful! Just because someone has played a huge gig absolutely doesn’t mean that their fans would turn your gig down. Conversely, this only means that the music scene is growing, the demand is increasing, and there actually will be place for your music in the scene!
The healthy way is to stop comparing yourself with the others and start comparing yourself with you in the past. Have you grown in the previous few months? Have you developed a new skill, wrote a new song, improved your performance or made progress on long-standing album in the works?
Your path as a creative is unique and must be different to anyone else – that is the definition of authenticity. Aim to be a better version of yourself every new day, and your progress will never stop coming.
