— Music : The Wind Blows —
The song I wrote but did not play an instrument on, I produced it with Acid loops.
Preformed wav loops that is used with rearranging, the pitch and length of musical patterns. All music is patterns, whether real time or machine. I used the loops first when I was into sampling, then someone got the idea that you could sell it and make money on it.
I’m a feather I go where the wind blows, and I’ve made it by the grace of the wind, I have legs, but they seem dead weight and I have to crawl when the wind stops. The wind is the spirit, and when the wind stops I’m in depression, and my demons rule, or I don’t have control over them, because of my indifference towards life in general. Oops I made a tangent rant.
The Wind Blows
I did not play any instruments, I was in decline in the vocal category too… not that I was ever any good in the vocal category, but I had heart. I haven’t played seriously any instrument in about 9 years, I’ve tried a couple of years ago, and it was like I first picked up the guitar, and I don’t have any surface feeling in the strumming hand after the stroke.
|I could learn again, but I want it to be for the right reasons not feeding the ego which is like Jabba the Hutt from the Star Wars saga.
I don’t play that way, no Jabba for me, he’s entertaining, but deadly, if you let him take control of your life.
|I’m more of a Gizmo ego.
I learned a lot about music, the nature of music. It can change at the whim of the musician. There are no musicians except the prerecorded samples from musicians that signed away their rights from the samples. I am free to arrange them to make this sad song, it can change, but it doesn’t…it stays the same dull drag of a song.
It has potential, as all of my songs do, but they don’t offer you the money makers. The record deals go to the talents that make the songs that sell, you have to be at the right time to be picked and sell the songs. I’m just singing from my heart, as dark as it is sometimes, but I’m real as real can be. I’m also talentless at least vocally and instrumentally, I play the basic chords and the power chords on the guitar, and I play a little keyboard and the basic percussion tools, also I can say I dream a lot.
I’ve been trying to sell my songs, but they say if you aren’t willing to spend money you aren’t willing to make money from your music. That was about $100,000 over 30 years time, I’m indifferent to success.
All I see is depression and hurt from success. I’m just throwing my songs out there, if it inspires you, then go ahead with it.
” The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones, but in the echoes of our hearts.”
— John Greenleaf Whittier
