It’s weird for me to think about what went wrong about this experiment because it exploded – or imploded? – into something that I never would have expected. I never thought that writing song lyrics would be not only as fun, but as revealing as it as, but this whole experiment made me do a lot of self-reflection that I wonder is more a critique of myself then a critique of the way than that of the experiment. A lot of what I wrote was very measured and powdered, and I feel very mixed about it because something that I value immensely in music I listen to is genuineness, so if I can’t write genuinely about my topics what does that say about my self? None of the raw opinions, views, or even experiences I’ve had were included within my writing, and when I reflect and think of the worth of the piece as a whole after thinking that, it’s very disheartening.
I’m thinking about recording a song over a beat for my new experiment, but a couple of worries I have are:
- Lyrical Delivery, (I’d argue this is the most important topic of the list, hense it being number one hehe)
- Lyrical Content
- Overall Clarity
- Chosen Beat
- The fact that I’ve never made a song before and I’m really just making all this along as I go through the process.
