Lately i have been trying to find a few new collabs in specific discord groups and on reddit. One of my posts there is trending in that particular subreddit right now, i think.
Unfortunately i havent had much luck. I received probably around 10-12 requests for a collaboration from various songwriters and music producers but not a single one of them offered anything i would like to do.
Only 1 of those was a woman that wrote songs that werent "electronic music" but since they were reminiscent of Evanescence, that again wasnt my cup of tea.
Why is it that everyone makes Electronic music?
I think its fair to say that its due to technology. Nowadays everyone can call themselves a producer as long as they can create a beat. And thats awesome. Technology has allowed for those that dont really have a background in music, dont really play any instrument to "do music".
All the power to them.
But that poses a problem for me because now everyone calls themselves a music producer. :D
That used to mean something. You needed to have at least some basic knowledge of music, some level of education, know how to at least play a piano or guitar, you needed to understand what meter is, the dynamics, tempo, harmony, etc...
Things these guys dont know how to do. You dont even need to have traditional schooling to develop this knowledge but you need to know "something".
And i dont want to even mention composers that are rare gems. Im lucky to have found 1.
Technology has changed a lot of things, brought so many things closer to people but it also muddled the definition of what a composer or a producer is.
Anyways, just a few thoughts on struggling to find some projects worth doing. :)
