Naaah, I think that whole "entertaining" thing has become nothing more than another tired musical cliche.
Imo, ...It's been done, ...and done again.
I say it's time to pull the plug on entertaining music, and allow it to die a dignified death. Stop the compressions, pull the sheet over the head, and just let the patient go.
It's time for the next big thing, ...that's right, it's time for UNentertaining music!
Yes, these days the true "movers and shakers" like myself, are constantly breaking new ground in the field of "Unentertaining Music".
I'm always exploring new, and unexciting ways of making my music less, and less interesting, and as unentertaining as possible.
This is what I believe is what "I" do best, and this is how I plan to seperate myself from the rest of the crowd; with their oh so tiresome interesting beats, beautiful melodies, intricate harmonies, skilled musicianship,and competent production.
I my friends have chosen the road less travelled, ...and that has made all the difference.. (Well, okay it hasn't really paid off yet, but its kind of a new idea so it'll probably take a little time to work out some of the kinks, and stuff... But people are definitely starting to notice!)
In fact I get comments all the time from people who seem to be genuinely impressed by the progress I've made in this endeavor. I'm often approached by people who have heard some of my music, and were touched to the point that they feel compelled to share with me, just how they felt while experiencing it, and how incredibly unentertaining it was.
Some of them seem quite enthusiastic about it too!
I always make a point to thank them, and then hand them one of the autographed triple CDs I keep handy for just such an occasion.
Sure, it's a little expensive I suppose, ...but I find that the look on their faces makes it all worth while. (Yanno, there really is joy in giving.) It's people like these that keep me going! I like to think, I'm doing it for them.
