Timelessness and memorable laws – the topics that have always fascinated me. I have always tried to find regularities and don’t even realize why. However, I pay attention to them in every transaction. It’s probably an occupational habit as an artist manager and a non-fiction writer.
This theme of timelessness is present everywhere in my production. Timelessness is the frame against which all the development is reflected. Timelessness is also a fixture on which I build the structure of my books. Timeless also determines the order in which my lecture series on the topic are presented. Or the content of the artist mentoring and guidance I provide. There’s quite a rational reason for this.
Books are easier to update, renew, and edit to match the prevailing terms. Taking timelessness into account also makes it possible to eliminate momentary trends when they cease – there is no need to re-edit the entire book. Such a content feature also makes it easier for reader to perceive the purpose of updates. Under the theme of timelessness one is also able to reach to the present moment as well as find the things that need to be corrected, improved, changed or removed in the very moment.
To stay up to date, I visit several industry forums like MusicAlly, Music Business Worldwide, Future Music Forum or webinars arranged by Songtrust to name a few. All this, in addition to the daily practice. Every time something new comes up in those situations, I wonder if it should be taken into account in my books, lectures, or giving mentoring to the artists. One part of my information acquisition relates to such one-one-one conversations that I have on a weekly basis around the world. Here’s one such with MusicAlly’s Commercial Director, Anthony Churchman.
All this has become a cycle that affects everything in my daily life. It also brings rhythm and routines to the day.
Take care there and talk to you soon.
