Slowly setting up my new music room, I would want it to go a lot faster but I have very little time. have to be at work often and loving family caring stuff at home.
Because I am progressing very slowly with my new music room I have the time to identify my needs and wants in regard to sound sculpting / music making + it’s function(s) for me and the pitfalls. Creativity, self expression, flow activities, time consumption/distraction,… it all pops up in my head in combination with gear combinations and sounds and the idea how privileged I am right now and the fact that it was not always like this, I have come a long way in that regard.
There are toys for many Western wallets, we live in great times in that regard. These many toys times also get us in problems. Is it sustainable? Too many choices? Doubt? Gear CRAVE and problematic GAS? Are premium prices for boutique stuff worth it?
It makes me sit back now, I see the pattern of wanting more coming back, then it goes away again.
In the end I just want to get some emotions in and out. I don’t care about style or conventions, dance floors and opinions about that.
That’s what it is meant to do for me.
Reading this topic made me write this. I hope that made it relevant enough.
