Thread Name: Req: Songs of political despair
Subject: RE: Req: Songs of political despair.......
Fi, and any and all others, who may be interested. The best we can do, as musicians, is to wallow in the despair, or try to describe it better....but rather, give them the opposite, from all the dark bickering. Give them peace and hope..and point the way. Give them beauty! Nobody gives a shit how hip you think you are, and/or how you can get it across, after all the other songs of that sort, has just worn out and grown tired!

As a composer, and recording artist, sound engineer etc. etc. I'm sharing this with you. If the beauty is there, and its pure communication, people begin to see the greater...and it is NOT the political, and economic strife, you would have been the part of something greater, that will outlast 'them'!~

Practice, practice practice..and do your homework. CARE!...It may be the only weapon in this struggle that brings peace!
