Why do artists peak, burn out or go crazy? Because their creative beast has had enough and refuses to move.
It’s not a slave, it’s sentient like a seperate entity, just stuck within your soul. You are the vessel.
Now I understand if you treat it with the respect it deserves, reward it, challenge it, don’t let it get out of shape, it will stay fighting fit, ever growing and morphing, for as long as you need it.
It has no limits and no boundaries, but needs rewards and achievements to continue.
You wouldn’t carry on working like a dog for nothing would you? So why should your creativity.
It’s emotive, so it needs to feel emotion, happiness, darkness, elation, love, thrills, experiences. They will keep it going and your ally for the rest of your life.
Experimenting and pushing what you do creates the challenge and achievement. Improve the mix, bass, motion, feeling, loudness etc all satisfies that beast.
This is track 29 since december 2010, proof that these theories work. These are the best tracks and they go on improving because they’re not the same as what went before.
People always expect the same, which is why people peak and die, trapped in a box by pressure.
The bass and loudness, not to mention the blurring speed of motion created by this tune , wouldn’t exist without experiments. Some experiments have to fail for others to succeed.
After not giving The Ghost enough rewards for its efforts, I finally bought a blu ray player for 60 quid at Sainsburys, a bargain.
30 Days Of Night looks great on it, and the first Hi Definition of any kind I’ve seen. A film tailor made for The Ghost and it looks and feels great to watch. So a few more blu ray discs will keep the creative beast going in future.
