what is my sound?
i don't know, but lately i've been second guessing what i want to be when i grow up, i want to be an engineer, but i find myself daydreaming a lot about being up on stage playing guitar and singing to a crowd of people.
I even tell my friends, "If i get into music when im older... I want a particular sound that i can call mine." i want a sound that couldn't even be classified as a genre. I wanna let people know about what's REALLY going on in the world around them. no sappy love songs or upbeat party songs... im talkin real shit.
I wanna teach my audience what linkin park, korn, nine inch nails, and marilyn manson has taught me. if it weren't for them... i would know nothing. i would be into the one direction and justin beiber bullshit.
I look at the tv screen sometimes and think. "all these lady singers sound the same... The hip-hop beats are the same, overused and generic. pop music sounds the same. none of today's music is art... its just made for entertainment and for a quick buck. rap doesn't even have a meaning anymore. what happened to the " super nintendo, sega genisis, when i was dead broke, man i couldn't picture this" now it's "fuck bitches, get money" to sum it all up.
Back to the lady singers... me, im not one to sing at a high note. i suck at it. but that's a good thing... it's taught me how much better i am singin at a low note. i need more practice, yes but im getting there. singing songs by guys teaches me low notes (especially jon, he is especially a challenge for me to sing at). I would want people to hear my voice on the radio and definitely know it is me. not have a million guesses like the rest of the female vocalists. i want people to hear me on the radio and ask "now, who was THAT?"
For my music, i would mix elements of my favorite bands' music but that would not be my sound. i want people to know who inspired it. but the overall sound would be my own. i just don't know what that would be though...
