Show Your Work!

 

In my quest to be more present, I have come across a great book called “Show Your Work!” by Austin Kleon. This was on a recommended reading least by a fantastic composer, Zach Heyde. 

I recently become one of his patrons and joined his Discord server which is loaded with resources beyond those for music composition. In this book, there are many easily attainable steps on creating an audience. Chasing and searching for an audience is actually the exact opposite of what should be done to obtain one. Let your audience find YOU. The more you share your process instead of just the finished products, the more interest is generated and bang zabam, an audience. 

It may seem counterintuitive, but the majority of people, myself included, enjoy watching or reading about "how the sausage is made". This post is a long way for me to say “Hey everyone! Expect to see all kinds of content on my process of how I make music and sound!”. 

 

TLDR: Post writing and/or videos to all social platforms daily about your process, not the product.
