...with this piece I’m working on for the NGADM.
But I can’t trust that. I remember Chopin’s wise words:
“When one does a thing, it appears good, otherwise one would not write it. Only later comes reflection, and one discards or accepts the thing. Time is the best censor, and patience a most excellent teacher.”
But I only have a few days, so oh well.
I don’t take drugs except for the occasional headache and allergies, but I have to compare music to a drug for a moment here. The more you listen to a particular track, song, etc. one builds a tolerance to it. The emotional effect never becomes quite the same when you first hear it, and that is perhaps one of the reasons why we can never run out of music. It becomes an incessant desire to continue searching for that emotional fix through music. And boy aren’t I excited when I find a piece of music that can satisfy. But I am aware, unfortunately, of the fleetingness of it. I can never stay there.
A sign for great music comes in how long that effect takes hold of you after that first listen. Can you continue coming to it and hearing something new so that emotion/interest is sustained?
So what I do before the mastering process, I listen to my own music while I work on it over and over and over and over and over again—often times without break so that emotional high can wear off and I can then listen subjectively to it with bigger ears. This allows me to add depth to a piece of music as well, because I can’t stay on the initial thing of the piece that kept me interested in the first place. Consequently I burn out, and the music I have uploaded here on Newgrounds have become quite boring to me. But it’s not about me anyways. For music’s sake I can only trust that someone will enjoy them.
