Over the years it has occurred to me that while many musicians are spectacular at writing and performing, many lack the necessary skills and motivation needed to promote their music to the public. It is a shame because there are so many talented people that I believe deserve the opportunity to showcase their work to a greater audience.
With this in mind, I recently presented a 90 minute seminar of my design at VEMF 2011 on “Building Success” in electronic music culture. The experience was thoroughly rewarding for myself and I hope that those who attended the interactive session found value in it and were able to implement some of the ideas. Later, the concept of this blog came to me as a way to consistently share thoughts about “success in music” with those interested.
This blog is not focused on how to make music.
There will be no mixdown tutorials and I will not help you write gnarly Skrillex basslines.
It is focused on aiding you in how to achieve whatever you want with your music.
My goal is to help you get your music out there while you enjoy doing it.
I have been actively involved in the electronic music scene for 10+ years (promoting, performing, producing and participating). I have also spent many years studying the fundamental ideas surrounding “success” and analyzing the work of those who have accomplished what they set out to do. It is a personal fascination that brings me great joy and satisfaction to help others along on their path, whatever it may be.
