I haven’t made a beat in weeks, I can barely be bothered to even sit down and mess with synths and stuff. I just feel like I’ve lost all motivation to even do it. It’s not cause I’m bored of my gear, got guitars, bass, pads, samplers, synths etc etc. Totally disillusioned with acquiring new toys. I’m just bored to death of being a one man circus. anyone else? Do we really not reach a point where we’re bored of being the drummer, the instruments, the vocalist, the mixer, the videographer, the editor and the promoter? I don’t really have much desire to work with other people so we can all pat each other on the back and do basically the same thing. It’s just been a while since I made anything and felt like fuck yeah this is it
Not trying to whine, guess I’m just thinking why do I even do this, it’s so so much work for so little reward, even in the sense of pride in your work. I couldn’t care less about “blowing up” or having a single fan. It’s a lot of effort to sit and make something where I can say to myself “this is objectively good”. More so because some days it’s effortless but more often than not it isn’t.
Gonna stop before I go on and on, but anyone else?
