I am a true free spirit. Being charming, independent, energetic and compassionate. Knowing how to relax, and being perfectly capable of switching from a passionate, driven idealist in the workplace to that imaginative and enthusiastic free spirit on the dance floor, often drives my music with a suddenness that can surprise even their closest friends. Being in the mix also gives me a chance to connect emotionally with others through music, giving them cherished insight into what motivates myself, friends and colleagues. Everyone should take the time to recognize and express their feelings, and their empathy and sociability make that a natural conversation topic.I spend a lot of time exploring feelings and ideas before they find something that rings true becomes a musical melody. I hope to establish a place in this world, through my imagination, empathy and courage are likely to produce incredible sounds and music that resonates with others.I figured I would start sharing on musical forum first to expose my creations to others with like minds I hope. Well my channel is below and feel free to comment or let me know your thoughts.Thanks in advance.Mhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtu...BD_CiElj41bd5w
Just thought I'd share this very effective way of coming up with music in my head: Meditate until you've built up enough concentration that it lasts for a half-hour or so after you've finished. Close off all sources of light into a room, then lie down somewhere comfortable (I do this at night lying in bed). Stick earplugs in your ears to cut off background noise (very important I find even if there are only faint sounds of traffic). Spend about 10 minutes thinking up as much original music as possible of any kind until you become relaxed, unselfconscious and generally in a state of creative 'flow'. Then start directing your imagination towards the ideas that you want. I think this is so effective (for me) because it kind of works like a sensory-deprivation tank. I realise that many people don't find in-head composing effective at all, but for those who do, you should definitely give this a try. I find I can come-up with far more original melodies than when I'm improvising, and the better I get at meditation, the more effective this technique becomes. I just hope this all doesn't sound too weird in an off-putting way.
