Technology vs. Know-how. (As Bono would say)

Well, what do you say. 2015 is at us & don't you feel it all just sifting in & settling into our pre-occupances. Fair trade? We all wouldn't know how to deal with the future if we are honest enough. As far as industry talk regarding music & the arts & how its related to techonology & current consumerism, it would be adequate to say the fact that you really couldn't believe anybody anymore unless you are easily divided between candy & forebearing fruit. There is no law that specifies your choices as far as free willed individuals, just the age old motto of freedom of choice. Regardless, if you tied that up to modern structures in design that has shaped our community, you can see the obvious end of the tail sticking out like a sore thumb. But it bites just like ordinary days in the past yet now because we are fixated on candy we simply don't want to know any better. Simply because we are by default not crafted that way. We'd love the power to be able to change ourselves. Forget about it. The best we can do. & the artist era all the same plays you the same song. The difference between the now & then is the everyday access to technology making music & the arts such an exciting place to be involved in. If you want a shot, you have one. You may even excel & impress yourself every now & then. As far as on-going trends, I believe pop culture already ate itself along with its punters. The reason why nobody notices it is because its easily ignored like the past yet at more extremes at this present time & its taking your kids along with their voices. I know because I am a child of the late 70s & freedom was FREE at the time & I basically slept for a while only to wake up & find the 'fun' dissolving. Hence, where we are at this present day. Genres have come, some stayed, some went. Now, 2015, genres are not an issue. Not even a throwaway magic word. The seamonster has already claimed your kids along with their friends. It will just keep getting bigger & more & more normal. Disguised in your disgust as far as what the entertainment industry is feeding you or have you had it way enough to actually find a place in it. I have. Did, anyways. Yet, as 'consciousness' grew in me, I found a better place to be in & its called detachment. Fresh air is free that way. Like it always has been. We have YouTubes, Soundclouds, Instagrams & the lot of the utilities we have now in this modern times we are living in but question its parallels & you will discover the truth behind this seamonster that acts as your friend. Why do you think we are all on greater divides with little much results, yet we still push our agendas like any of it all actually works. Find quietness. & if you're an artist deterred by trends, find something that can transcend yourself. Before your art itself. Because that is the only way where you can break free & out from the mould & eventually find your place in this worlds. Present time. Present moment.

Interpreting where its all seemingly going.

Already we are bringing the scars & history of pain with ourselves as we begin to enter this current present year. For most people in most countries, not inclusive of economic status, the questions are at us. I feel it, & i sense its urgency. I have no idea what this year means for the worker, the office staff & your daily play of politics and rat race. That i can guarantee you will never ever change. Just our methodology probably needs to as these cards have gone on forever. & reform has been the basis of our motivations. The shoes are the same, coloured with the same stains, though everybody loves a new pair. Clothes too, as well as a holiday 'working'. I have grown up in the western world for more than half of my life and the sun shines a little brighter where I am. & its been a real situation to go with & code a life by. Very privileged being able to enjoy what i do & most of all the life I live. I make beats the same way as anybody out there so…

Why I pursue the business.

The sole purpose of music whether for healing or just entertainment or both is the very first thing a listener will come across when listening to music the first time. The feel of a song, sonics that touch the soul for healing. As a music fan, growing up listening to almost everything, I have carried the tunes over time as a grown up adult without losing the song or a beat in daily living. The songs are in our heads, soul, spirit & mind. & engraved in our hearts for a time & season, where they resonate the most. Press into spirit, reach for the unknown is what music serves us up with. It can control our moods where the responsibility for us to take account with is up to us whether we lose what we don't need &/or gain what personal attainments derived for us through this medium. It shapes our philosophy where identification of thought is revealed, recognized after its delivery. Its sheer pleasure to submerse into our favourite songs & communicate life long lesso…

Where I have most resonated with.

Hello, to whomever is reading this. My name is Paulo Yarisantos, a Filipino Australian immigrant living in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. I am a beatmaker/musician & producer & part time blogger (when I can) and a seeker of God's living waters within the human soul. This blog is totally run by me and the thoughts are inspired by what I firmly believe in based on experience, starting with the littlest observations before these 'thoughts' begin manifesting themselves. Its just a matter of clarity before one can truly interpret the things I write about. So feel free to scroll through. The following tracks represent where I have been at creatively using minimum technology all completed & mixed using freeware plugins and general production techniques. Quite the outcome production-wise and here are the sum of some of my favourite pieces I collaborated and completed both by myself and with the help of others. Sound results, great work for general media presentatio…
