Modern music, threads, & branding trends.

Music for the consumer & fans alike through measured consumptions have been a predictive result in taste of sound & this observation has been tried & worked well in the industry's younger years. Fast forward pase mtv culture even on to the digital era, consumption of music as we all know now have been just another commodity, when once, a necessity. I say commodity because its selective audience of few rest on the privileged people to be that versed in the know that they know who to look out for. I became a music fan again & again over time and have noticed its serving purpose change from the days of tape to cd soundtracks to movies, concerts in dvd formats, to mp3 downloads & now free streaming.I am sure people still follow certain artists but best to say its from real afficionados of genuine music fans & most truely are well just happy with following a certain playlist more so than a singularity of interest. So where are the people turning to as far as recorded music? A lot are happy seeing a concert and an iMusic account & that suits them fine. So, now that revenue from music are selectively controlled & not too many are winning whether you are an independent or major artist/act? & dying age old established companies are all feeling it. The reason of reason itself also lays within that crowd of people who failed to act on forecast duties though you couldn't pin it all to music executives alone. Technology sky rocketed and it was all simple to believe that everyone would play it fair and square. Yet, due to a differing design basis of business, laws of the old business model, couldn't have been less invalid due to internet technology. Especially in the music industry. Due to early years of undiscovered technological advances in computer culture & related tech developments, we watched a bunch of it unfold though sadly the waiting period of knowing how to adapt the rapid change ate us all. Not even your streaming business providers were held accountable for the lack of governance to its product suppliers. & they abused this particular opportunity knowing that they had the the front page of music business presentation. & it was sour when reporting day came. So, this was the direction the music world went by & is in need of rehab. The solution? Nothing concrete less than proper inspiration to believe in the human spirit especially when it comes to the arts. As well as a reinvigorated belief that music do and with wider eyes open can still bring solutions to its consumer.

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…

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 …
