The Pursuit of...
July 3, 2017
Over the last four years I've struggled with making something that was original, sounded good, and made scene to me from start to finish, and it was mostly accomplished. Looking back at the SHC catalog its very obvious, at least for me, to see where things changed for the better. Vancouver chronicles part 4. If you go back and listen to everything from the beginning to the end, why is that one the one where everything changed? What happened to make that different, what about it was the catalyst for things to take shape and become more clear? Why did clarity begin to surface? Two reasons: the first is I stopped trying to make things that were something other than what I felt I needed to make. I tried to make weird music because that is what I wanted but I didn't know about how to get there. It became a chore to try and write something weird and different that I had not heard and thought people would like to hear. I thought about what would I like to listen to , what would sound good to me, what feels more natural, what sounds and feels like something I would wright. It quickly became about making something that I enjoyed and didn't want to skip over, something I felt proud of, something I was happy with. It sounded like something better than I could right. The other reason is because of one persons words that let me know I must be doing something wright. Someone who had disapproved of my music choice in general, who didn't really care about the things I had written before, someone who thought that it wasn't worth listening to. He had over heard me working on it for about a week or more, never really said anything and when it was done asked to hear what I had been up to but asked to hear it again. I will never forget that night.
Don't look to appease people with anything you create, Art in every form needs to be personal, from a place that matters, that doesn't care about how it will be received.
So stop producing shit! We don't need more electronic music!
