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.

The business of doing & simple daily practices that enhances productivity.

What's productivity? How do you define its measure? How do you view it based on your priorities? What decides where you put your focus, time & energies on? These questions are what we most often quietly ask ourselves in our subconscious though often times, due to debris, fail to hear our most distinct voices as we are choked by the things & concerns of this world. My field of interest (sometimes a little obsessive, which is ok), being the general creative industries, specifically in music, its very difficult to see things as they appear & personally, I pray everyday to gain clarity within it all as a daily creative. We are in the age of free media, & for the musician, that's generally not what we want. Its not reasonable to pursue the record industry due to exhausted business models caused by the internet. On the other hand, its the most important thing in my life, though however questionable. Not because there's no income from it, but just because of the b…

Questions of faith & reasoning.

Well, 2018. This makes this my very first entry for the year. I am caught up in the words I may have or haven't read about &/or spoke of in my early days of seeking the Christian faith & what I write about in this blog. & I am happy I have questioned myself & how scripture even may be still applicable today. Or if this didn't, it'd be still honestly the question of how it ever really did. I am a spiritual person & whether nature of belief is perfect, consider questions that points to the imperfection in you. The imperfections in us. Knowledge is worth nothing without further benefit. Thus, causing one to start questioning the reasons of why even bother seeking utopia when all else is hardly reached & seldom understood. Scripture for example raises a lot of issues, questions, fears & doubts. & double the trouble. Pretty scary to be real with it. Its what fuels my drive, desire & passion to communicate these specific questions through art …

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…
