We are naturally artistic geniuses and we don't realize it

Recommended Posts

Note to Reader:  I know I've posted a topic similar to this on a few occasions.  But, this topic contains some new information that's very interesting.  I talk about my tunes and explain some new things in regards to them, but then share a bit of information that explains why I think our brains are naturally capable of creating great works of art in our heads.  So, I'd like to begin here:

These are short tunes I've composed that I'm sharing for now.  I don't have the proper instruments for these tunes because I don't know much when it comes to instruments or music in general.  Also, when creating melodies, I just create whatever I'm inspired to create.  

I personally think my melodies are awesome.  If they sound like awful rubbish to you, then perhaps I just have to find a way to bring out their power and greatness to the audience.  Only I know their power and greatness since I'm the one who created these melodies.

So, I hear these melodies as awesome and conveying of certain scenes, while other people might hear them as nothing more than noise (i.e. meaningless rubbish).  In other words, others might hear them as random tunes, plucked out on an instrument, by a baby.  

In summary, the power and greatness of my melodies currently lurks in the shadows where nobody can see it but me.  I will find a way to bring out that power and greatness from the shadows and into the light where the audience can clearly see it.

I have every reason to think I'm naturally creating great tunes in my head.  I could've accurately reproduced these tunes in my head and I just have to find a way to convey their power and greatness to the audience.  Or, I didn't accurately reproduce them and it would be no different than someone who has created an awesome drawing in his head, but was bad at drawing it.

Either way, someone might say to me that I'm not creating any good music in my head to share to the world. I think I am though.  Why is it that I think I'm naturally creating great music in my head, having no knowledge and experience whatsoever in composing?  Well, there are two reasons why and I give those reasons below.  After that, I present a few of my tunes.  So, here are those reasons:

1.)  Even if you're a complete novice who has no knowledge and experience whatsoever in any field of art, you can still naturally create great artwork in your head, whether it be through drug trips, dreams, or just plain inspiration.  During dreams and drug trips, you witness awesome and beautiful artwork with no effort at all since your brain automatically creates it for you.  

If you've ever talked with people who went on psychedelic trips, I bet they'd tell you they've witnessed beautiful landscapes they've never seen before, met beings they've never met before, and heard angelic music they've never heard before.  Psychedelic trips allow any average person to enter beautiful or hellish realms.  These realms are great works of art, created by our brains.  The beings, music, landscapes, etc. are all beautiful, awesome, hallucinatory works of art.  

2.)  There's an article I'd like to share which talks about how we naturally have remarkable musical abilities.  I think one of these abilities is to naturally create great and powerful melodies, themes, and songs in our heads.  The article talks about statistical learning which gives our brains these natural abilities.  So, technically, our brains do have musical knowledge which allows us to naturally create great music in our heads.  Here's the article:

With all of this being said, I'm going to share a few of my tunes.  I'm not sure what my tunes will sound like for others.  However, if people do report that my tunes do convey some sort of emotion or scene, it might not be the emotion or scene I intended to convey since my melodies are only in their beginning stage of development.  I must, therefore, find a way to bring out the true power my melodies have for other listeners.
 
If you just leave a melody out there for others to listen to, you're just being vague to the audience.  You're not articulating exactly what you want to express to the audience.  That leaves the melody open to a wide variety of interpretations where one person might see the melody as conveying something, while another person sees the melody as conveying something else.  That's why the artist must bring out the absolute power of his/her melody.  That way, everyone who listens to it will get to hear what the artist intended to convey. 

It would be like if someone has written a sentence that's unclear to the audience.   One person who reads the sentence might get a different message from it than someone else who reads it.  But, if the writer makes the sentence absolutely clear to everyone, then everyone will know the real message the writer intended to convey.  Anyway, here's my 1st tune.  It, to me, conveys an awesome, video game boss, fight scene.  It's something you'd hear in the chorus of a theme song:

Here's another recent tune.  It's a very dramatic one and it's my most dramatic tune:

Now, here's another tune.  I think it's very cool, awesome, and catchy.  So, here's the tune:

Yes, many times, and it's never ended well, has it?

You know what they say about doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different end result.

There are things I didn't get to explain yet though.  These would be the most important things, and they would be those 2 reasons posted above in this opening post.  Not only that, but this opening post presents and explains things the best way.  The previous times I explained and presented things wasn't that good.

I admire your humility.  

Yes.  If I just claimed I'm naturally creating great music in my head without any knowledge about composing, I'd be bragging about myself.  But, I'm claiming everyone has this natural capability.  If not everyone, then many people.  Again, I present those reasons why in my opening post.  Also, I'm just keeping an open mind here.  I'm actually undecided if my musical claims are true or not.  I'm very well open-minded towards the possibility that I'm creating rubbish music in my mind that I just think is great and expresses the scenes I described.

If I could only be half as humble as you, my own greatness would soar to  the very heigjts of immensity.

With so much to say I'd recommend starting your own forum.  You WILL attract like-minded individuals and that will probably make you happier than you'll ever be here.

Ok, to be fair, I read the article (it was good and I understood it).  I also listened to all of your "tunes" which are actually more like brief intros.  I liked most of them as such, but I would suggest taking basic lessons so you can continue them and turn them into actual songs.

Most babies make all sorts of sounds and noises that make them happy but, other than convey the baby's general mood, they lack the alphabet, words, spelling, sentence structure and grammar to be adequately shared with others which would communicate far more.  Hence the suggestion to go learn music's alphabet, words, spelling, sentence structure and grammar.

Thanks for taking your time to read and respond!  But, maybe, my brain isn't naturally capable of creating good music in my mind.  So, I might be creating rubbish music to share to the world.  In which case, I'd need to know how to create melodies that convey something awesome and meaningful for other listeners.  I wish to create melodies, themes, and songs that express the things I wish to express.  I don't just wish to learn how to write good music.  But, I'm not sure how to do this.   How would I, for example, create a melody that expresses someone coming along and showing kindness?   Sure, I could write a good melody if I learned how to do it.  But, I wouldn't know how to create a melody that expresses kindness.  I'll give another example.  The Super Mario theme song is in the key of C major.  But, how did the creator of the theme (Koji Kondo) choose the notes and rests for this theme that expressed what he wanted to express to the audience?

How do you imagine any composer does that? That's like asking how Charles Dickens decided what words to use...

I don't think it's like that.  If I was a painter, I'd know what to paint in order to express what I want to express to the audience.  If I was a writer, I'd know what to write to express what I want to express to the audience.  But, when it comes to melody writing, that's a different story.  I'd be clueless on what series of notes and rests to choose for a melody that expresses what I want to express to the audience.

Yes, exactly. If you were a painter, if you were a writer - so if you were a musician, you'd know instinctively how to do that.

I'd have that writer's instinct and the painter's instinct.  But, I might not have the composer's instinct.  I'm really getting the idea that melody writing is something special and different from all other fields of art.  So, if I was working in any other field of art, I'd know how to express what I want to express to the audience.  But, to express what you want to express to the audience through melody writing, that's something special and requires some greater ability.  I might not have that ability.  That means, even if I was a skilled composer who wrote good music, I might not have the ability to express what I want to express to the audience.

There are also lots of musicians out there that are virtuoso playing an instrument but wouldn't even know where to start when composing something original.
