I feel the need to write about my recent lack of content lately.
One reason, but not the most significant reason, is the lack of new ideas, and motivation. Ever since competing my mixing course, I’ve been completely derailed from production, and moved into mixing. This is bad since trying to build a mixing portfolio proves more difficult than I expected. I’m also trying not to get caught in the new trap style rap instrumentals as I believe they’ve been milked enough. I want to present something fresh.
Speaking of fresh, I actually have a few entries drafted but reading them back to myself, it feels like it lacks personality. It really does. I’ve not posted them because I was trying to find “myself” in what I have to offer. It’s true that moving into the digital era of music has concentrated the market with people taking on similar roles however, I still feel it necessary to offer something different from those who already dominate the niche.
Breaking the meta
I’ve been known to constantly “breaking the meta” with the things I do but I would not like solely go around disagreeing with what everyone says just because I see it differently. Some of those people are the reason I’m here today! I’ve tailored my craft around a mixture of their teachings and other opinions/practices of other engineers alike.
In the meantime, I’ll be finding myself, refining my perception of who I am as an engineer.
