Ever since I created my first Scarbee virtual instrument in 1999 they have been artistic experiments - much like an artist who create life-like grass, human bodies or hyper-realistic drawings. I wanted to see how close I could mimic reality and wanted users to experience the magic - and use the magic in their music.
The money and the business has always - and will always just be a mean to make it possible for me to continue creating new stuff - as this is a part of my DNA.
Its not without challenges to have your company based on the mind of an artist - it gets problematic when you partner op with someone who wants to dictate what you can create - or keep on denying you to do things you want to do. I once read a book about the artist Tony Matelli - and some of his emails to the art gallery that made his money was very close to the emails that I have sent to my partners over time. It's the same issues that have bothered Prince, George Michael and many other artists through history.
"When money walks in - God leaves the room..." - people focused on earning money have little understanding of an artistic mind. They do not realise that you need to follow your instinct - even if these different creations function as a "resting" of "purification" period in order to return to previous styles and lift them a level up.
This is how we work. To tell people to "look at the market" and give people what they want - is not how it works. Sometimes you get lucky and get successful with stuff you love - but that's not the same. The point is that its poison to be caged, shelved and instructed to do something just to make money.
I will continue to create stuff that I love - and hope it will be useful for you.
The "Diamond Sculpture and Volcano inside a Diamond" is my creation - using Midjourney AI app.
