Thanks Olivier for your eloquent thoughts re: Finding the Magic. It's the constant search that keeps most of us going. And it reminds me of the disturbing arguments I had in my recent past. Back in the dim dark daze of my Lexicon past, I remember having extended arguments with certain peoples there who insisted that the bulk of the "musicians" out there--i.e. potential buying market-- have abosultely no interest in finding a unique voice, and creating new and innovative musics. The certain peoples at Lexland insisted that, indeed, all these "musicians" were seeking was "getting laid". They have no interest in something new, they only want to copy what sold. So, thank you to all who've been sharing with us your secrets of creative magic--I'm thoroughly gratified to encounter so many forward-thinking musicians. May you all find what you're seeking.
