My name is Deborah Williams and I have a passion for music. My chosen Full Sail University degree program is Music Production. There are a lot of negative opinions about where the industry is headed, but I believe that my love for this field of art is not unique; people will always want to add greatness to it. My contribution to the industry is that I will be able to help touch lives on a larger scale through music.
I have a passion for music, and a drive for success that might not be uncommon but is special when found. I’m sure all lovers of music can relate to the feelings of being understood through this beautiful way of self expression. We find solace in music. Which is why I want to make it my sole purpose in life to use it to help others. My contribution to the industry is that I would add beauty and a voice of a generation of people that haven’t yet been expressed. Some of the negative connotations associated with the music industry have, at times, diminished my ability to enjoy music as a whole. Articles being published about how music is now used as a way to influence the audience to lose their own individuality, rather than rejoice in it. I would like to make a difference in that regard. We live in a world now that is ever evolving and becoming less personal. Technology is a great thing, its helped build so many new platforms and is a way for artist to share their music. My contribution to the industry would be to find a way to intertwine these platforms, yet still make it personal to audiences everywhere. Although there are so many ways to spread your talents these days through media consumption, I feel that some important aspects of music get lost in the process. Somehow it feels like its lost its heart. It would be beautiful if we could take the business pressure of music out and add love back in. I feel that the future of the industry will head in a wonderful direction, if we continue making progress towards our true inner selves, through music, instead of being blinded by other clamors of the world; music will continue being beautiful.
In conclusion, my goal is to bring back the heart and soul of music in a way that is as beneficial for the listener as it is to the producer. As a child, I fell in love and found a way to express myself through art. Unfortunately, I have witnessed the general consensus of the music industry change from free-spirited expression to money driven business executives. Steve Jobs once said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” I believe if we fill the industry with people passionate about producing music, and less people passionate about producing numbers, we can bridge the gap between soul and sales.
