I found myself incredibly curious why are we creating music. So I decided to create this philosophical thread because I couldn’t find anything similar on the forum.
And I feel that this question is extremely interesting and important, yet underrated. We all have a track called “Inspiring”, but there are almost no inspiring topics on the forum
So share your story with the world! The story of your continuous musical journey. You may use these questions if you wish to make your message more structured:
Why and when you started to produce music? What is it about it that made you feel it is a worthy thing to do?
What keeps you motivated to create music? What thoughts or goals fuel your daily inner musical drive? Thinking about your goal, repeating your own “power-thoughts”, curiosity, desire to win or something else?
Why making music is meaningful to you? What meanings do you find in it? Making the world better with your music, helping people, to feel good, to feel proud or anything else?
What do you do when you feel no inspiration to produce music? What thoughts or actions help you to motivate/inspire yourself? Maybe some meditation, or recalling good memories, or walking outdoors, or listening to some music, or something your own, completely different?
What would be your advice to someone who is just going to start creating music, or recently started? What mindset would you recommend to cultivate to progress, feel good and cope with obstacles? Your advice can be related to Audiojungle/stock music world or not.
I strongly believe that your post is invaluable. Because there are many authors who feel down or unmotivated right now, and reading your post would help them a lot, maybe even (in rare cases) would save someone’s life. Besides, even you yourself may benefit from reading your own post in the future when a tough moment comes. So your post is your story and a letter of help to those who truly need it.
I really want this topic to be a feel-good place of inspiration for authors, music producers, as we sometimes need a place like that. I’m incredibly grateful for you sharing your message with all of us!
