So, lately I've been finding that making music has felt more like work than it has fun. So I've decided to shift my attitude about how I'm doing it. I found myself too caught up in making stuff that is more listener friendly and "makes sense" as a song.

In reality... I don't really enjoy making music like that. I enjoy making music just to make music. I don't care if it "makes sense" or if it abides by some rules to fit into X genre. Honestly, I don't even care that much if I mix it perfectly. And I think that's where I lost my way.
Instead of just writing what I find fun, I spent a lot of time trying to achieve things I didn't enjoy.

So this is me going back to my roots and just writing something because I felt like writing it.

And it feels really refreshing to be able to write like that again. It didn't feel like work, it felt like fun.

So I hope you guys enjoy.

this is really cool!! I love the melody, the piano, the effects, really nice song!!!! But there is at 3:05 a little detail (the thing that goes like tuh tuh tuh, not really cool melody... yeah I know hard to illustrate in a review) that breaks the melody... but it doesn't even last 3 second, so it is fine... continue that good job..

Gone back-to-roots, huh? Hey that's not bad. In fact I don't think I could agree more with much of what you've said in your Author Comments. Music should be an enjoyable thing to do and not really something that feels like a job, unless of course it's your actual career.

Like some of the synths you've got here; I remember the whirly one being used in Phyrnna's "DFOTM".

Keep doing what you're doing. You know, even as a career, if you enjoy making music, it's never really a job to make stuff. Just be you.

The late great Richard Joseph said it best " what I did, and do what no one else is doing". You don't need to find your audience, your audience will find YOU.

You've got yourself a nice piece of downtempo here with a bit of an israeli vibe to it as someone ellse already suggested.

I'm pretty sure this panders to a sizeable audience too, so please don't ever talk yourself into believing you somehow must aim for the lowest common denominator at all times. ( Unless they're threatening to cut off your private jet's coke, caviar and champagne supply )

Allso a +1 for checking out the Softube FET, got it in my master bus section for my default song template and i use it all over the place in individual channels/instruments as well, not just on drums.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I think you misunderstand, I don't want to be abstract or obscure. I just want to write what I want to write, how I want to write it.

It has nothing to do with aiming low or trying to fight the mainstream. It is literally that I can't have fun writing music unless I'm writing it just for myself, without worrying over every little thing and how it could be "better" so that more people can enjoy it.

That also doesn't mean that I won't accept criticism, there's a fine line, one that a lot of people falter on when it comes to accepting criticism, "It's supposed to be like that" when someone finds a flaw in your mixing, is for example using "I write for myself" as an excuse for being lazy or poor producing.
I do still want to improve, but the content of my music will be written entirely in such a way that I enjoy it. And constructive criticism can help me improve aspects of what I enjoy writing to be much better.

Glad you like it though.
