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…

Sonship Parallel (feat. Motto Rock)

Sonship Parallel by Motto Rock As an old rhymer in yesteryears I just wanted to write one more time in tribute to a friend who was taken away by cancer. Strange how the Lord just wills His way & does what He pleases in some ways but it is what it is. So I grabbed a pad & a pen once more just to exhale reminiscing the days of when the crew of old (while John was still around)were still around knocking boots before having families. Hope you like the song & that it connects with you in some way or form. Its just me probably missing a few solid bars so here it is as my best attempt to do something lyrically all up.

Selected Listenability & the Forecasted.

The entertainment industry, specifically the music business, has been having everybody guessing on what will trigger the next big tidal wave to bring in raking dollars that has so whatsoever have maintained its 'sucker-punch appeal' to an ever devoted youth of dreamers, & super-driven ambitious individuals who would love to get in the circuit & cash in. Why that is, is because of a lack of encouragement to not to dream about being a superstar because of limelight percs. Ha! That's true for everyone regardless of what nature of work in any field you are. The music business itself due to driving artists on spotlights are more obvious because its meant to be obvious. So you have these kids thinking why don't i just make a beat off of my laptop and sell it for maximum profit?!?! What they don't know is that these superstars & celebrities and its core culture is and will continue to wither to lower ranks. Its going to take a big ripple to rejuvenate the musi…
