Learn to compose psychedelic music


So, you know I started with big dream how i will learn compose Psytrance… and I have to say it is a individual proces.
Sometimes im learning from youtube sometimes from payed content and sometimes in the bar or on party when i talking about music …
The most shifting times are when you are with friends and talking about composing, than i realised i remembered most true sentensis like : ” its about to synthetise the details, its about understanding .”

Its about story telling.. the music have to grow/envolve/move some where mostly the sounds have to move or be somehow diferent weird, unature with nature context.

And specialy in music which is composed electronicaly in DAW its about movement and details..
You have to play a lot with Velocity at drum sections because live drumer nver play exactly same note same louder …
you have to think be the creator because you really are.. the creator.
Also if you have been on psychedelics , you know, its like ” big picture around you which you dint pay a lot attention but infron of you are details which you are focused on ..but in the end its whole..”

Also what is very important its not to be glued on have the perfect song finished..
Only way how to improve its compose and compose and compose ..but when your ego start talking to you ” nah man , its sounds shit you will be never good and you need to finish this to be good” its bullshit..
because mostly my sould starting to telling me ” nah dont listen this , you made some progres and good parts you know that” than its up to you what you will choos to listen..
but everything its a process, the life its process.. composing music its a procces and playing somewhere for someona its a procces and this all givving to you and experience which will start changing you ..

Also what i find out from druming and from my starting composing is :
you can have the best HW or drums but you need good tacher because you can play on shit HW amazingly.
Everything what is free cost you a time and quality.. not everything but payed content is much more “lets go” than looking for hours on youtube and didnt know what to looking for..
And thats why i started write this article because i have a ton of youtube tutorials and i had to find them out by myslef.
How i told everything is a process and what should happend it will hapend can only start the direction but not expect specificaly where you will end..because this is life ..unpredigtabe life and nothing is stable, but ony which pure heart you will go throug thise procedure named of life experience.

Also the biggest factor to have some progress is everyday composing, opening that bull* ableton and have just fun there, playing with knobs in synth and trying things… hmm and mybe do some notes ( im writting them but never reading again 😀 )
The organisation / have a plan is critical to succes, be orgaize and than also enjoy free time, rest your brain and ears, this is also helping for new inspiration and attitude for work.

Because this world is already set somehow, 5 working days and 2 est days I told to myself i will have it also like that with 2 rest days it will depends my resting is music so in Sat and Sun im discovering new artist getting some inspiration from reading books and Dj when I have house party.

So I hope you carry something, have a good day and compose
