Please send me any old voice memos you have on your phone. Music, ambience, grocery lists, phone calls, etc. I'd love to hear them and to have the chance to turn them into ambient music. tgj.schaefern@gmail.com Thanks! ------------ Notes _____________ <b>December 31st, 2020</b> I find there's too much pressure to create good art. I am bad at art. I like making art. Sometimes I feel too overwhelmed by the pressure of making sure my art is good to make art at all. I have made good art by accident before, and I know I have it in me. I am glued in place by the fear that comes with wondering if this art will be as good as my last art. But what is the point of good art? I think good art's main function is to impress people, while bad art is purely expressionistic. These two things can exist in a venn diagram, as I'm sure there is overlap, but once you're overly concerned with the aesthetics things tend to lose feeling. Today I will make bad art. I will stretch, take a shower, and make art. My only goals.
