Social media can be a bit like that. Everyone plays it in their own style and broadly they cluster together. Like minds form tight networks and together they advance their own way of doing things. Broadly though, it’s all still music and everyone involved can recognise it as such.
You can gather around your favourite bands to hear them play live at a concert in the same way as you can hang on the every word of your favourite brands. Alternatively you can get together and make music for yourselves. Don’t worry if you can’t sing or play an instrument, that’s not what’s important. The punks proved that.
So I guess the question is what instrument do you play? Are you the drummer keeping things moving along at the right pace, or are you the lead guitarist – flashy but hit-and-miss? Or do you need to be a one-man-band in order to make it all work?
I try and be the singer, I want to verbalise what’s happening to make sense of the noise for people. But secretly I want to be the saxophonist!
