In today’s online world of media and peer pressure, we can compare ourselves too much to others.
Too often, many new artists try to replicate big, well-known artists. It is easy to see why as the music you make is likely to be consumed by the masses. This seems like the safe thing to do because after all, they have “made it”. However, when you do the same thing as other artists it turns listeners off! This is something that can stunt your personal creativity.
Many people are influenced by the music they listen to, and having influences from other artists is perfectly okay.
Having musical influences is different from doing the exact same thing.
After all, it’s how we got to where we are today in the world of music.
To make better music, focus on yourself and your own music. Try to find something that makes your tracks different and stand out. Find your sound!
Making music is a creative activity. Try to manifest that inspiration and creative energy by creating a certain vibe.
Next you should dedicate a space where you can create. The mood of the space will definitely affect and influence what you can come up with. So maybe mix it up occasionally, change the colour of the bulb in the lamp, buy a plant etc. But basically, your space will serve you as the basic pulse for your next song.
An easy way to prepare for a creative activity like this is to practice mindfulness.
Even if you’re not into those sorts of things. Music is created from inspiration and it all starts within the spheres of your mind.
The most important part of mindfulness is what you experience in the flow state.
So next time before you’re about to write music, try out getting into a flow state for yourself.
“A flow state is an optimal state of consciousness where we feel our best and perform our best.”
– Mihály Csíkszentmihályi (positive psychologist)
