je-ne-sais-qu0i asked: at what point are you satisfied with your 'art'? I feel like all the music I've ever recorded is only good when deemed good by others. Not that I'm making it to satisfy them but, I don't know, the recognition of a song being "finished" or even "polished" to the extent of not working on it anymore and to be satisfied with it in its entirety? at what point do you say, "this is something I want to be remembered by with thousands of people on the internet?"
i don’t really know what to tell you, man. i’m satisfied with my art when i know in my heart that it’s done. that doesn’t mean i don’t listen to old albums that have already been printed and still think about the production, how i could have improved upon it, what i could have done different, etc. but that’s just who i am at this point, i do that when listening to all music. i just keep it in mind for future projects and try and grow from it.
don’t let it hold you back or slow you down. let old art pieces represent who you were at that moment in time and move forward from them.
