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 lessons from them with our friends & loved ones. It may even cause a spark to start our own movements through music. Or a tv sitcom with a theme of nothing less than inspiration. The greatest of them will always linger in our psyche & we will hold their works for as long as we maintain good emotions & connected-ness with one another. All of this through recordings. Now, there has been a shift in artistic theme over the last decade and a lot unprecedented. The explosion of new technology enabled easier access to music making. That is a very good & great thing. What is not so cool, is the lack of direction and in result, produces sameness from one artist to another. This should be a stepping stone if not an idea for peers to encourage otherwise for artists to find their unique voices. Only through this age old pattern in philosophy while grasping a sense of fresh insights can we really break through new grounds. We are all unique individuals as artists and musicians and this is what should be pursued in our music making. Not carbon copies of the last guy who made their first million dollars. As artists/musicians, we are next in line as spokespersons to a hungry youth. Bare in mind that we were once in their shoes and if you grew up in the 80s & 90s, you will agree and know for yourself that there were no shortages in class recordings giving us inspiration during this era and point in time. & I bet your parents would add that the art of music also gave them their aid in point of need from recordings they heard on radio in their generation. The youth of today, people a lot younger than Gen X are listening to Gen X music. I have consoled with many on this topic which is why i write these insights as in to how to have that same substance of offering referring to back then and bring them in the now. There's plenty more to discover and without these manifestations, the music industry (though it flourished in the hey days)will continue its despair because of people with a lack of vision. Its biblical for anyone who wants to make a turnaround & pursue at the same time a career in this field of work. So, what do you say folks? A healthy goodbye to 2016 & a challenge for all of us in the coming new year. Come 2017 & lets let it do its work. Be blessed. Peace out.

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…
