Disaster listening skills.

For the musician, like any other trade, in fact in all of existence man in general blindly sought themselves listening to egoic opinions of others eventually crafting their own 'self-embracement'. That's the world of the ego and as a musician it gets quite sticky at times. Busyness of schedule, high profile jobs & well crafted skills can trigger it all so naturally well. Myself, well, I have my share of hurdles to do with the wrongheadedness of ego based opinion, including in my work ethic regardless of whether I am aware of it or not. Its not in the hard yards we give our best on, not in the artistic excellence we achieve for ourselves, or the high praises we receive for our work from others that is the root cause of ego driven lives. Its basically to do with a common pursuit of acceptance from fellow man to validate our own self assurance. It also means thriving for nothing more than a false source of motivation for means like a higher salary, better job privileges & the like which automatically through every possible opportunity we have keeps us on our toes for every entitlement we feel is due us. Automatically, because we all work so hard & God owes us something. Automatically. It seldom happens that way hence the very core of this human rat race. You cannot change your surroundings without change starting within the individual & our homes. Families break due to over work commitments & relationships in general suffer through a lack in wisdom to balance our pursuit of happiness based on our very own self serving worlds. I am not immune to this dilemma of fallen priorities and self-centred agendas. Change is not going to come at all without pinpointing what triggers the egoic mind and how to silence its venom. Families and close tied relationships suffocate & burn due to a lack of respect of each other's limitations just because one believes the other is not heading ways towards their direction. The game is never really over until its side effects starts showing up. This is what I'd like to submerse myself on this year, a cry for change. Its been about in due time for me to see others how I see myself. Maybe, a new basis of foundation that is all things optimistic can occur and take place. Definitely.

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…

Sonship Parallels

For a question of faith (very timely) & to go through this sort of inspiration for the following thread of thought of 'sonship of source energy' is a very big one to go cover. That is the concept of spiritual sonship & understanding its parallels and how it is applied in a digital modern world. It covers a few things and many more I have yet to grasp to understand. One of the things i have come across are the things that traditional spiritual practices have promoted like love, joy & peace and words like hope, & faith & basic beliefs. I have been raised in the christian faith & very few of the things i was & had been taught stood its ground and more or less the majority of doctrine has been nullified due to an incarnation of new philosophies of the rise of mainstream spirituality including a mixture of teachings and doctrine spurned from eastern religions consolidated in western civilization and entwined in daily living based on the search for better…

Internet workshops have all the more cleared up issues on techniques covering methods for musicians at every level you can think of. & the answers for the creative no longer is a question due to technological availability & now all depends a subject to the individuals interpretation of the maker him/herself. Traditional methods just like most of the elements in recording/processing music are also subject to technological change where you no longer needed a G6 Ssl compressor to come u…
