As I read the WIP live document /metalabel is putting together, Promotional Principles for Creative People, some people have mentioned Show Your Work and I just had to pull it out my library to read it again. Excited to go over it with fresh eyes, inspired by the collaborative process of this upcoming release on Metalabel.

The last batch of Scenes @soundoffractures just dropped and I had to RUN to mint mine. Following the process and contributing an image took this album release to a whole new level for me. Give the album a listen and go through all the scenes, it redefines what emotional electronic music is <3

My tenure at a Creator-focused music platform has come to an end and I'm really proud of what I was able to accomplish there, including a handful of blog posts on the future of music, interview with artists and more. In light of what happened to MTV News (and, honestly, a worse than usual year for music journalism), I want to bring those pieces onchain. I'd love to know your thoughts on sharing work commissioned by publications on a personal blog/page/what have you, and also what's the best way to build this archive. I started a @paragraph just yesterday, but that will focus more on creativity and sustainability in a broader sense. Stick and diversify that one or create a separate home por archive? Tagging @danicaswanson @colin @opiumhum @ehcarpenter @trishd @tombeck.eth @rileybeans for their POV 🧠

Today I accidentally came across an old Instagram post that is very slowcore-coded and decided to use it to kick off my newsletter on @paragraph! One of these funny coincidences, just too good not to share. "There’s a lot of talk around big bolts of inspiration and glorification of revolutionary bodies of work but it’s rare to hear anything about how to get there. To share the humble beginnings, filled with doubt, mistakes and loads and loads of repetition. That stage where we still kinda suck at the task at hand but for whatever keep coming back to it. Until one day, a break through. Maybe that’s where creativity lives after all: in a need to express something - an idea, feeling, dream - and committing to bringing it to life. Even if it takes months of learning a new skill, taking 100 pictures to be proud of only one portrait, or allowing a concept to develop in your mind for years." Should I turn this into a screenshot essay on @zora as well?

From the Slow Folk newsletter, by Stacey Langford: “I wondered if maybe Slowness is actually only for the privileged. Was I an ignorant privileged twat all these years, rattling on about the benefits of Slowness? Who gives a fuck about Slow Living if you have to be at work by 7:15 in the morning and no one in the goddamn house has clean underwear? Do you need money to live Slow? Was that why we managed?” This line of thought is adjacent to the starving artist conversation. I want to believe we don’t ~~need money to live slow, and also been thinking a lot about how to cultivate said slowness even in the face of lack of resources such as time and money, or under the pressures of structural dynamics like hustle culture. I have the feeling the answer to this will be first individual, then spread to small groups (like we’re doing here) before it catches momentum and grows outside bubbles. https://open.substack.com/pub/slowfolk/p/six-months-in-the-fast-lane

My first mint ever on /zora ☺️ The beginning couldn’t be more fitting: a mix of photography, writing and stream of consciousness.🪞 it's a public commitment to practice releasing more art and detaching from perfectionism. I appreciate any love and/pr feedback on this <3 https://zora.co/collect/zora:0x5811c7d684a689a16e18ddc51b538c04727ed289/1?referrer=0x164401CB421063Be2D7c125F6577990d72841978

New month, new book! About to start David Lynch’s Room to Dream. “No ground rules were laid down and nothing was declared off-limits when we embarked on this book. The books seems short and barely scratches the surface of the story at hand. Human consciousness is too vast to fit between the covers of a book”.

Been sitting on this for a while! After the latest Nerd Notes from @danicaswanson, it's time I share my thoughts on the starving artist __ There’s a lot of glorification around the struggling artist archetype but what most people don’t see is how hard it is to be creative when you’re stressed about rent. This narrative keep us starved and divided, while ironically tucked away on a pedestal. Committing to art is cool and aspirational, as long as it's a struggle. The moment you make it, you sell out - whatever that means. I can feel the itch to type KILL THE STARVING ARTIST, proverbial Molotov in imaginary hand, WHO’S WITH ME?!, but I pause. It’s too easy to blame the artist - the poor bastard is so overworked and underpaid they can’t even fight back. We need a shift in perspective, a radical way to go about things. New myths to tell the tale of the artist. But before we venture into world building, let us feed the starving artist. Then, and only then, can we begin to build a different reality.

Instructions for reading it out loud - so simple yet it completely transformed my reading experience! It made me realise I haven’t read a story out loud in a really long time. Why do we stop doing it? When did reading out loud became a kids-only activity?

@yancey ‘a latest newsletter, on artist retreats, found its way to my inbox as I myself am on a short retreat. He invites us to reimagine the retreating and being visible cycle of creation, to be more aligned with the artist’s inner rhythm. “If we listen to the ancient wisdom, we can hear the call to reimagine what an artist’s retreat is. Not some elite program in a secluded forest that people like us never get into. Artist retreats as part of everyone’s personal practice. A dedicated time and metaphysical space to retreat, step back, and explore that’s accessible to all.”

I interview meeting @soundoffractures a few days ago and our conversation was veeeery slowcore coded! Jamie’s goal with him is project is to “reconnect with the emotional value of music”, and we chat how difficult to capture that is on social media and the lack of appropriate metrics for that, making and sharing art at your own pace and so its sustainable in the long run (go slow and preserve things, anyone?), how his album is akin to an internet dark forest (concept coined by @yancey ) and much more. I even shout out the slowcore channel at some point, and the unmovement going on here. 🌀 I leave you the link, in case anyone’s curious: https://twitter.com/i/spaces/1dRKZElQEpzxB

About to start this one! Anyone else has read Carmen Maria before? It’s my first book by her but when I saw this on the bookstore I couldn’t resist. Excited to see the journeys this book will take me on!

Stumbled upon this audio guide on how to document grass roots communities and scenes while they're still there. Stories have tremendous power to unite and offer opportunities to those spaces when shared on the spot vs. in hindsight https://sweetmachinepublishing.bandcamp.com/album/audiobook-document-your-culture

My very first time encountering this type of authorship since AI became ubiquitous 1+ year ago I might be late to the party, but what do we think of this? I appreciate the transparency and acknowledging AI as a contributor as opposed to mere tool.
