Hey folks, it’s been a while! Honestly I’ve just been bummed out about music and haven’t wanted to do much with it for the past few months. Basically just feeling discouraged. Very “what’s the point?” I can’t say I’ve found the point, but I haven’t given up looking for it. I know that I want to keep making music, but I’m trying to find a new purpose for it (other than external validation,) and it’s just been hard. I’ve been reading Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life as well, and working on improving my diet… some shuffling of priorities I guess.
Anyway, I came across this Monthly class taught by Andrew Huang about music production, and decided to take it. I like Andrew, I think it’ll be fun and I’m sure I’ll learn something. (Hopefully a lot!) I’m trying to use it as a small bridge back into making music in a low pressure situation with other people who are excited to learn. I’m going to start the course on my laptop too, with a minimal setup and only a small slice of my plugins/instruments. I think it’ll help me approach it from a slightly different place.
I know at least a couple of people here have expressed an interest in electronic music production, so I thought I’d drop a link. (We both get $20 off if you use it, and will get put into the same group.) https://learnmonthly.com/andrew-huang-music?friend=riley-hawke
Anyway, I hope everybody’s been well!
