>>54817482 I know I will. My only real obstacle is time right now. I'm literally working on six albums at the same time before I release my debut so I can release a consistent 2 albums a year. I've already been offered a contract but haven't signed it for this reason, but I made the connections I needed (if i go the label route).
>>54817482 Anyone who has the inherent creativity, intelligence, and practicality to "make it" doesn't waste their time posting on an anonymous image board.
People here aren't musicians, just like people on /lit/ aren't writers and /sci/ aren't scientists. 4chan is a collective of fans who are mostly too afraid to strike up a conversation with a random person because they have zero self confidence. There are normies, but even that group knows they lack the intrinsic skills to actually do something worthwhile in whatever they enjoy discussing.
True art requires inspiration, and most people here haven't done anything worthwhile, they haven't travelled, they have fucked, they haven't put themselves in actual danger or taken significant risks. Music doesn't just require skill, it requires real like experience, all art does, and you won't find that here.
I love music but I was never introduced to it young enough to be inspired by it. I can play piano and guitar, but I started at 15, way too late. If you're really good at something you know it, if you can make it, you know you will. Don't delude yourselves.
>>54817905 I'm extremely confident. I just know it, but I won't post a track. Within two years an artist will confidently be releasing commercially and critically acclaimed material in quantity that was unseen since the 60s with non-album A-sides/B-sides and 2 albums per year. That'll be me, but it will be exciting if other people start to pick up their game to compete because that's what I want.
>tfw I want /mu's opinion on my music and artwork but I don't think i'll get any constructive criticism and I don't want everyone knowing i'm a /mu-tard because people will most likely take me less serious if they know I browse this meme hole
>>54818003 I don't think you know the difference between hype and confidence lol.
>post a track to be archived so people can trace you to 4chan and you very well might lose liberal sales Practical reason why not.
You couldn't possibly put me down. Music is objective lyrically and melodically and I've understood that from a very young age and my lyrics or melodies either fit that criteria or I trade it to some indie faggot for one of his melodies that I have vision for.
>>54818024 I really don't have an affinity for music. My singing voice isn't very good, and I don't play as well as I'd want to, besides I've never had that fire that you need to make good music. I mean who knows, if something crazy happens in my life maybe I'll change my attitude.
>>54818141 Yeah, definitely, man. I'm going to do link my SC once I get finished recordings up in July. You'll know me by quality. I'll have at least four songs around. You'd have to infer it, but you're not going to be wrong.
>>54817967 Just look at all the people that REEEE at the normies. Look at all the virgins, all the basement dwellers, all the autists and people who struggle with social anxiety who post here regularly. This is not a hive of genius, it's a pit of destitution and memery. Like I said, the vast majority of people here are just fans, they don't have the discipline, the motivation, the skill, the experience or the inspiration to produce something of quality because most people worldwide also have that same problem. I've tried making music, it takes a shitload of effort, and if you weren't making simple music from a young age, like 8-11, and growing from there, you're not going anywhere. True artists are "doers" because they recognize that you have to start doing to actually get somewhere. People here don't "do", they talk, they shit on people who actually DO put in the time and effort, and they do so behind the security of anonymity, and I am no better because I'm doing that right now.
If you want to make music, do it, but like all art, you need to have something to say, you have to feel it, you have to be able to look at your life and derive some basis of thought from it, and when you look at a group of people infamous for staying in their rooms, you don't find the qualities necessary to "make it".
>>54818400 The arguments about having to be doing music since young age depress me. I've started composing and writing my own stuff a few years ago, when I actually first got into music. I've been learning to play drums for about half a year and ever since I started I feel like I can't even imagine myself doing anything else. I kinda don't care if I don't "make it", even if it's a dead end road for me I've nowhere else to go anyway.
>>54817877 >15 is too late >NOBODY on this board has any real life experience >They KNOW they lack intrinsic skills >People here havent done anything worthwhile
Holy fuck you are projecting hard, speak for your fucking self m8, ive traveled relentlessly, ive taken my share of risks. Just because you sit in your room 24/7 sipping from your mothers tit every 4 hours doesn't mean we all lead the same life. I feel bad for you, you started music at a pretty early age, earlier than me at least, and you still have this shitty depressed attitude.
I'm a bit older than the average /mu/tant, in my twenties and looking to shift away from this place, but also with an established career and degree behind me. I'm really not looking to do this as a career - Kinda just want to make amazing music I'd like to hear and hopefully have a few people that enjoy it as well.
Hope the people set on making it or just living off music make it though. You people have massive balls.
Frankly, I don't care if I 'make it' or not, if other people enjoy my music than that's fine. In the mean time I'm going to finish my album, write more songs, and claw my way into doing some shows, and hopefully I'll manage to get the fuck out of this wasteland of a town I live in.
>>54820581 >I also realised that I wanna make music in every styles, not just one, and a band really stopped me from trying different stuff. why didn't you get a second project, with other people from different horizons?
i dunno. depends on what you mean by "making it". like, being able to support myself off of solely music? probably not. but "make it" as in "get some fans, sell some shit, and play shows"? yeah, maybe. tbh if i could get an audience to come see a show of mine at all, i'd consider myself to have made it just a little
>>54821481 it was for a contest. I entered like fuck it, tried my best, use some cool album covers and motifs as inspiration, kept basic art design principles in mind and I won. Looking back now it's total shit, I'd rather not post it.
When I look at album covers and see really low merit art, I wonder if it was done ironically or because the artist was bad. Either way at least album covers didn't go out like the movie poster industry.
Why would I need to find any of those people? I have everything it takes to make an album. Few microphones, DAW, bass, synth, guitar, drum machines, a sampler, harmonica, ukulele, mandolin and my vocal cords.
I have probably 15 songs that fall into the category of Post-Hardcore, so I probably wouldn't be able to perform these songs live, but for a bedroom-project, I can't see no problem in it. However, I have roughly 10 singer/songwriter-type songs I could perform live by myself.
My mindset: I listen to a fuck-ton of music, acclaimed/held in high esteem, hated, beloved classics, forgotten classics, questionable assucs, ahead of their time, behind the times, retro, futuristic, current, hip, unhip, dad-core, mom-core etc. etc., and I decided that no single album or song SPEAKS FOR ME. I will always find a flaw that I would have done differently, so I never deify artists like a lot of you do. I say to myself, "I could write a better song than this" then I expend all of my energy until I do. Confidence is not blind, it doesn't come out of thin air. You need to KNOW what you're doing is significant, even if no one else can see it yet. You need to work until it is so.
