Here’s one I got reminded of lately. As musicians we need to learn our own field of music. No matter what genre our music is, we need to know what others in the same genre are doing. This is important.
But sometimes we need to take a peak outside the box. As Einstein said: “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” If you recorded your last album in a specific studio, tracking everything individually and in the moment it sounded good, but looking back now you feel like it was missing something? Why would you go back and do the same?
If you have been playing your music exactly the same way for the past ten years to the same live audience, maybe it’s time for change? Maybe yo need to look at it from a different perspective?
Step back a bit. Find some new inspiring music, maybe completely different genre than what you usually listen to. Get inspired. Change your process. Break out of the routines. Do something different.
