Creative or banal?

Posted on at

Hello, guys.

Today I created my profile on Film Annex, and I am happy to introduce myself to everyone attached to this social media website. 


I love music and everything related to it. I love to have conversations on various topics regarding entertainment and show business. I dedicated my life to singing and songwriting, and the  interesting point is I can't say what genre of music I love the most. I have never tried to memorize names and authors of my favorite compositions, I simply have never tried become somebody's fan. 


I admire the works of the Beatles and let's say Regina Spector, but it doesn't mean I love people who wrote those "masterpieces". To me there are two completely different interfaces that exist separately: personal and creative. You can be a mad genius, a source of inspiration for the majority of people, but in real life everyone treats you like a piece of s*** idiot with no common sense. A good example is Van Gogh who cut off his own ear with a reason apparently known to himself only. Such a freak whose works became a piece of art. 


I always try to separate my creative image from the casual one. I am constantly trying to work on my music style in order to develop it into something new; and as a creator I totally differentiate myself from who I am in my every day life. Bringing some sort of craziness to what I consider my personal music style, I continue experimenting, which either makes me a creator or, if I fail (which also happens) a freak . 


People are very skeptical about new things that's why for the most artists the right way to be successful is following common music patterns. But not for me; and there are not that many of those who actually took risks, failed, got back up on their feet, and eventually ended up being superstars. I am pretty sure that you all understand that there is a small portion of such artists as Lady Gaga and Psy. The majority of artists are banal pop clones.


Despite mistakes that have been made by me in past, I always keep in mind an old saying, "A copy can never be better than an original". For this reason - STAY unique and unpredictable! No matter how good or bad your desires are. You will always attract people's attention!
