Any tips for breakdowns? You just made me self aware of my fear of breakdowns good sir...
A breakdown is an opportunity to be totally self indulgent. In culinary terms, a breakdown is like a raspberry soufflé served with sharp gooseberry foam and créme Anglais. Nutritionally quite empty but still capable of lifting the spirit.
If the style of music you make requires you to stick rigidly to a rhythmic template and tempo and you run the risk of alienating your drug-fucked, short-attention-span audience by drifting 'off-piste- for thirty seconds every 6 minutes then you're probably best steering clear. I don't have that problem.
I like long, indulgent intros, breakdowns and endings, and each one is trying to be a little miniature ambient universe, all of its own. The breakdowns are often my favourite parts of my own songs.
Gene Wilder or Dave Chappelle?
What's wisest in your mind, working on creating sounds I enjoy until and because I like truly them, or get my music out there and learn from live performing/mistakes but at the cost of really making it interesting?
I like it more as an art, but feel the second is somehow necessary if I want it to support itself, but that also feels like giving up short of the artistic goal ...
Hello Ott, where do I begin..your music brings such happiness and emotion to my life, I don’t know where I’d be without it. With that said, it’s crazy to think about how your songs make me feel such emotion, but yet I have no idea what is being said.. I’d like to know what language most of your songs are in. And who’s voice is used in baby robot...because I need that person at my wedding? much love my friend xoxo?Ott responded on 02/22/2018
