I don’t really listen to playlists.
I still listen to records chronologically.
That may mean I’m a bit of an oddity in my generation, but I love listening to and appreciating the journey that has endeavoured to make a 40-60 minute musical journey that is sophisticated from start to finish.
When I find an artist I really like, I then start to explore the catalogue, I want to know all of the work they’ve made from their greats, to their goods to their not so good stuff.
The evolution of artists is fascinating and usually the ones I really like have kept on changing direction and exploring creative facets. Peter Gabriel’s career from Genesis to his solo material is fascinating.
I love the idea of creating a catalogue of work that I myself have done it and thus far have five to my name, with many more planned for the future.
To anyone reading this who is creating their body of work in any discipline, you have my respect and admiration.
And if you haven’t started yours yet and want to, today is a good day to start!
