I'm still working on music but I'm trying to work harder and make my songs perfect.
My goal comes with a small story. Summer of 2013, just after my grandfather passed away, Random Access Memories came out. That album, combined with my friends, created an unforgettable summer for me. The album brought us all so much joy and the summer felt endless that year. Things have changed since then and I will never have another summer like that again. What does this have to do with my goal? My goal is to create and unforgettable, magical, endless summer feeling, not for me but for others.
I always said "don't try to be like Daft Punk" to myself and so I only used them for inspiration. But what's wrong with being like them? What's wrong with creating a summer like that for other people? Nothing.
I suppose in writing this I feel I understand more why Daft Punk retired. Whether it takes a few albums or 100 I will make a grand time for others through music. Who's to say that wasn't their goal? What if RAM was what they wanted? Then after trying to do it again they realized they just couldn't top RAM?
I'm not trying to be better than them or anything, I just want to create for others.
