In music , as in life, it's difficult to set out on a seperate and personal path.
First you have to choose a direction, one based on personal skills and interests.
Then you need to find helpers, friends who share your interests and want to join you in your explorations.
And there are always the usual rocks and gullies to navigate around, wrong turns and other complications. It takes time and hard work and the most difficult part (for me at least) an unshakable focus towards the job in hand.
But when you ultimately succeed a creation is born that is unique, an out of the ordinary experience for the listener.
