I am an artist with my hands in a few things: producing, singing, rapping, piano, videography, and more. I don't like to stick to one particular genre or style of music and I allow myself to be open-minded while creating. When recording or writing music I try to channel whatever energy or feeling I'm currently experiencing and translate it into the music or art. I feel that if I can help create a powerful feeling within myself and keep it there when recording then that is the first and most important step in the process of making a powerful song that creates a powerful feeling in myself and possibly others. Sometimes it is difficult to capture the feeling and it becomes a balancing act of sorts.
I need to know when to simply allow the music and ideas to flow through me and when to direct them and/or focus. Also I think improving technical ability where needed/wanted will help in the execution of the process and in other people being able to connect with or enjoy the expression. This is the way I currently view making music but any other way is valid as well and some people may like to think about it in a purely technical sense and that's totally okay too. In my eyes and how I currently create, being open-minded is most important and goes along with my general and music-related philosophies.
Thanks for reading/listening and good luck in finding and following your path!
