Working Out Your Ideal Musical Style?

Like some of you know I've just released my album. I have got many levels up and a lot more closer to the style i'm after. I'm very glad I did this album as making an album had a positive effect on me. My big brother has also noticed my progress and he likes the idea to make another album in row. I have a vision for my next album, thanks to "Mutant Minds" And if everything goes right, I will raise few levels up again.

How about you? How satisfied you are of your music you've created and are you developing your own ideal style?

As side note I'm writing a producing article which may be interesting for some of you to read. It's a guide to develope your own style and level up as a producer.

Happy producing guys n girls

I'm constantly torn on creating my style. I have this hang-up that I need to create something totally and completely unique, but I am dealing with it without it becoming a show-stopper. It seems like with every track I complete, I think "I'm going to create more songs in this style and put out an EP..." Then I start a new track and it comes out different than I expected. Not that an EP or album really has to keep to a single vibe/genre, but I think some cohesiveness helps.

When the screaming in my head stops I know to hit save.

There is so much music that I enjoy, that I find myself torn as to what to produce next. This tends to make my style "eclectic" - does that count as a style?

Music Sites : Bandcamp - Soundcloud - Myspace - Musicnuevo

CD "Harvest Song" available at : CD Baby - iTunes

I also enjoy lot of the music but i've stopped making so angry and dark stuff over the years, i guess it's a sign of getting older.

I put very little thought into issues like style when it comes to the music I create by myself. I see this as my style. An anything goes style. I do have a few staples but they usualy fall out.

I love how you can create in so many styles and do it so well.

Another album in the works eh!! geewizz your motivated dude.

Hi guys

I'm relatively new to the Forums, but I did want to throw my two cents in.

I have played and listened to a lot of different music over the years. I find that I'm always conflicted as to where I should settle. I can play very mellow pretty ballads and New age stuff then turn around around and play Metal, techno, jazz, classical, lounge. You name it.

There's a lot of good music out there. Don't even start with World music!

I guess I get bored unless I'm trying something different.

I understand that you have to stay somewhat in one genre when releasing say, a CD or compilation, but I don't think I'll be happy until I get some of my heavier/stranger stuff recorded somewhere. Even if noone much besides my daughter and/or best friend likes it. It's like something you have to get off your chest.

I must say Record?Reason is helping me finally get some stuff down.

I am very hung up on having my own original sound, possibly this train of thought while being a noob is a bad combination, but I will keep at it and at the same time work on more traditional pieces. I have about one and 3 halfes of work finished so no I am not satisfied lol, but I am learning a lot along the way. I think you already have your sound Pirnikas which is really cool, would love to hear some female lyrics on something of yours one day
My mind is glowing
