On Writing

The first and hardest obstacle to overcome when writing about music is the sense of deja vu. Even though the thoughts originate from inside your own head you can't escape the sense that you have heard them somewhere before. It seems that today radical or revolutionary thought has been all but obliterated by an overreaching perception of comfort and safety. Because of this it becomes increasingly hard to extend the limit of human endeavour or thought because of that self same cognisance of deja vu. By accepting that you are travelling down a path well trodden you can begin to explore its nuances and more esoteric sights.
