HOW TO COPE WITH MUSICAL FRUSTRATION?
I've encountered this shit sometimes in my life, but today my head is going to explode.
>Should I continue doing music even if it is crap/worthless waste of time?
>Should I keep trying to make something meaningful?
>Should I try drugs now?
"you are such a pussy anon" comments incoming..

You sound like you're burnt out and need a break familia.
Music should come from personal experiences, take some time off and go do something different from your normal life to inspire you. Or even try going about it a different way. Different recording techniques, different instruments, tunings etc. You need to shake up the mental pathways.
I mainly do that, but idk if I'm just an asshole by myself or not being fullfilled with anything. Maybe I need a break, a loooong break.
yep, great headphones! also, most of my music have a "negative aura/message" so maybe that shit is fucking me off too.
sry, speaking 3 languages at my retarded iq its hard
i dont make music but i do paint, and the way i come up with ideas is by laying back in bed and picturing how i feel, like ill feel like a spear is piercing my chest, so then ill paint that.
With music you could probably think of writing songs from different point of views or creating a character
you know sometimes i will see a painting i like and i will steal that idea, i wont trace it or copy it but i will steal the idea, like if i saw the scream by edvard munch i would paint a picture of myself screaming, get it, the idea.
or you can take concepts from other media like if you like horror movies, make a scary song, challenge yourself.
or if you like sci fi make a futuristic sounding song about aliens.
make songs about human behavior, the way people act.
what is your opinion on politics, the occult, society, Hell, death, war, sex, consumerism, misery.
Pick an emotion or subject and create
going to try some acidic blast beats on my e-drumkit haha
It's the only thing i mostly enjoy at this time, lately ( dont even enjoy sex anymore for example). So kinda dont want to lose the only thing i have.
how would I learn to play piano like you?
My main instrument is guitar but I'm a sucker for how depressing a piano can sound. I'm not looking to be a great pianist, but just get in the realm of what you're doing on 'her name whispers nostalgia'
Any composers or pieces you'd suggest? I can read music btw
OP I don't like your music either but if I quit back when my music was total shit then I wouldn't be making music now.
But I have to question your ambition. What is it that you want to make? Don't be afraid of telling me you want to be X artist, because that's what's kept me going creatively sometimes.
OP here, "how depressing a piano can sound"
I think the same! but sry I'm not a piano player!
I used to play my gf's keyboard from time to time and did that. Just try it, if you need some reference, this is one of the guys i admire
Outside was OK at best, barely listenable due to how fucking slow it was. If you're making music, the point of it is to make it enjoyable. Just get some talent and stop with the weird vocals and slow piano combo.
