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 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…
