What does mean to be creative in the music business?

An interesting article about creativity in the music business by Groov’Music Marketing LINK.

Once I saw a comment under one of Bjork’s videos that Bjork is the second Lady Gaga. Obviously the author of that comment was too young to be aware of the Bjork’s music. I think Lady Gaga is actually a pop version of an electronic icon Bjork in terms of creativity and something weird.

Another article that I like is called ‘What do you promote: **You** or **Your Music** LINK. It made me thinking a lot because people say that my performance is not only about the music, but about entertainment as well. They call me an entertainer. (Naturally I was a very shy girl and it took a lot of time to develop my self-control in order to be able to stay at stage and to talk to people.) So do I promote myself or my music? I think, if I promoted just myself, I would perform songs written by someone else, but I sing my original songs and I also promote my brother’s music by spreading my project. He is a composer, and I see potential in him to write music for films.

People can know me better through some of my songs as they show two sides of my personality – a womanly woman and a cute little girl. Other songs are written on particular topics, for example, ‘Techno Love’ is about an androgyne and the future love, ‘Electronic Boy’ is about guys who spend too much time with gadgets instead of relationships, and ‘Doll’ is a hymn of girls who want to look cute and pretty, like a doll. Obviously, my project promotes both me and my music. I also write books, so I want to be well-known as a writer as well.

One of my business cards states: I’m not a freak. I’m just a genius.

I’m not a freak. I’m just a genius.

After attending fashion shows of my friends, fashion designers, I realised that knowing me and reading my blog make them pay attention to neckline design. I suppose when my book about fashion collars has been published once, it may change the world of fashion, or at least the way of thinking of many designers.

I cant’ change the world, but I can change the world of fashion!

FIRST live performance of ELECTRONIC BOY

Last Monday, the 10th of September, I performed my new dance song ELECTRONIC BOY for the first time! There is a problem in Japan that young guys spend too much time with gadgets instead of relationships, and that inspired me to write a song about them. Currently I am working on the official creative video for this song, but now you can watch the video of my performance taken at Lock17, Camden, London:

And one of my favourite songs LITTLE GIRL:

A mission, not a desire…

It has been 2 years since I moved to the UK. It was not a desire, it is just my mission. When I was 7 years old, I told my mother that I needed to study all subjects in English, because I will live in London in the future, but no one believed me. So I attended a music school instead.

I spent 7 months learning 30-150 English words a day in order to pass TOEFL two years ago. I dreamed Madonna when I was a teenage, and she always took my hand in those dreams and said ‘Go ahead!’. In those dreams we were always in London. So I knew that it was my mission given by the Universe to establish my music project in London and to publish my books here. I can’t say I like it or not, I just know that it’s my mission.
