DJ’S, EDM, ADHD, WIFI: YOU NEED TO TAKE A BREAK
Can you think back and imagine a time before computers were ever used in music making? Just as all inventions that have recently existed, people were doing just fine before they were around. It’s kind of like all of us imagining that flying cars would somehow make our lives better, but in reality we are able to travel and transport ourselves just fine without them. Computers, on the other hand, are really a wonderful innovation. At the very least, they save us from having to use paper and let us type without having to go back and correct errors.
Computers have actually done a lot for music. For the most part, they have made producing music much easier and accessible to the average person. As far as DJing goes, it has without a doubt made the task of mixing music much easier on everyone involved – but sometimes it does too much. It makes us too complacent with what we have, and many of us fail to use the same creativity that we had when it was limited to a few records and a mixer. Maybe we should take a break from all of the wireless control and computer aided mixing in order to better ourselves.
