One of my worst fears at this point in time (aside from the Real Big Serious) is that I'm going to lose my synth collection. Like, what if I have to move and I can't haul these glorious beauties to my new home? The best thing about my collection is that most of them are either in need of repair or in various stages of disassembly. Try to pawn an M1 with its insides out. Go 'head.
Being part of the JV Team of the music world, I can honestly say I do music for its own sake.
To write music that stands the test of time or acts as an emotional cornerstone for someone in need. That emotion can be longing or lust or envy or anger. But music is an excellent catalyst and conduit of spiritual and emotional energy.
I think what makes humanity unique is our tendency to look after each other. If we leave that behind, we'll be an extinct species very quickly. I would like to impress that idea on society, somehow.
Phil Collins "Against All Odds" popped into my head, and I don't know why. It should have been Tiffany or Debbie Gibson or NKOTB, but there you have it.
Synth demo artists on YouTube. That shizz is my jam.
Sometimes it's my desire to hear and feel the music I want to listen to. Sometimes it's an effort to express thoughts and emotions to my small, but beloved, audience.
I believe I may have covered this one in a different question...
NERVOUS! Turn up my mic and crank up the reverb! Nothing makes me happier than to see a group of people engage with a song I'm performing, and especially one that I've written.
It takes a marketing team working behind you unless you are able to devote most of your waking hours to your career. The returns of developing a following don't seem to match the investment.
I think it's an opportunity.
Not enough time. Not enough personal space. Musicians need a bubble of sorts to do what they do.
Circumstances at this time don't allow it.
Wealthy, connected, and young.
