There’s no level of skill beyond which you stop being you

There’s no level of skill beyond which you stop being you – Music of Sound

Click on the link + have a look. 

Skill versus originality is an old seesaw that moves back + forth as years pass. I think the 70s + 80s were full of the just-do-it energy of punk. Originality was valued highly. Everyone was looking for their own voice. 

My sense is that the seesaw has rocked the other way. We are in a time where skill trumps originality. There are many highly skilled musicians, but I don’t hear as much originality. 

Is this an old person’s POV? I mean, I grew up in the 70s + perhaps I have created fond memories of that time + view those years through tinted lenses? 

Well, it is a seesaw + soon enough it will tip back the other way + people will complain of the lack of skill of artists. :-)
