Validating yourself as a musician in the land of likes and streams

Anything about MUSIC but doesn't fit into the forums above.

I keep reading the thread title as, "Violating yourself as a musician..."

Perhaps one for the HPC?

my self-violation devices are in storage at the moment

agree with everything else besides the doing of music a waste of time, except that.
you'll love it, it's a way of life.

Oh, I've violated many people with some of my music, including myself. That time I had to perform an oboe solo for my Music Performance class. Ouch. Some things you can't unhear.

In reality, there are hundreds of millions of musicians in the world.
The tiny amount that actually get signed get a certain type of validation.

But the vast majority who continue for years making music get some type of personal reward, perhaps beyond mere "validation".

So they continue....

Frankly, if you are in this forum, you are a musician. Or are you cheating all of us?



ps: this is not a joke, the very fact that you came here, to ask that question, and not to other forum to ask a question about other subject, is what somehow seems to clearly show you are a musician. So, any doubts? Check your forum profile.

"it is up to the public to assess the greatness of the posts; the (praiseful) self-evaluation/self-endorsement of the poster is ultimately irrelevant."
how absolutely fascistic

I've said this before - the amount of f**k given about what other people think is inversely proportional to age.

As you get older you know what you're good at and do well yourself, and are better able to objectively look at your creations dispassionately I think. More of the utter shite gets weeded out before the recording phase.

Also, for many of us oldies, we're not actively trying to make some manner of 'career' from music so the 'pressure' isn't there.

Yes, it's always nice if people enjoy something, but it's not the world shattering, 'woe is me', doom, gloom and anger if they don't, which you felt sometimes as a yoof. Just move onto the next one...

^^^ Ha Ha! Touché. Yeah, what do we care at our age? The chances to make a lifelong career have been wasted long ago, if they ever were any chances at all.

Frankly, we think posters’ friendly appreciation and help in the music cafe is vallidation enough for us, if we would ever need more than our own. For some reason, posting on KVR brings more plays to our Soundcloud than posting on Gearspace, Reasontalk or our national gear and music site. Not more likes, tho, but I am an oldie making oldish music, so I do not really expect any. It is a miracle already that some play it at all :lol:

If that would be a Robin Hood sentence. Do you think that people would ever see the Movie?

But I guess that's a encouragement for younger people to stand for their rights :clap:

I think it's in general true though. Think about other things. When you're a teenager it seems soooo important that you have the right trainers, the right haircut, clothes etc.

When you get older you just want nice comfy footwear and clothes, and as for the hair- just do something with it that doesn't involve too much f**king about to make it look ok.. :hihi:

Validation in terms of the opinion of others becomes less important than what you want yourself.

For yooooouuuu.."
