Music Ecology does a THREESOME


"Three" is a powerful number. Mythology, religion, mysticism, numerology - all atribute special meaning to this particular digit and we'd like to explore this further.

Each month the three Music Ecology members will chose a topic to share three of their thoughts or observations on. We'd love to hear what you have to say on it too. 

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."
-Hunter S. Thompson

This month we'd like to talk about the reasons that make the three of us want to work in the music industry - the industry where the odds are almost never in your favor, where dreams crash and burn, and aspirations turn into obsessions.

  1. For the love of music: as a drummer in multiple bands- I get to be in touch with many different kinds of musicians and work within all genres of music such as: jazz/ rock/jam/edm/blues/fusion/funk/trap/hip hop/ house etc,. As a DJ (The MadMauritian) I get to hear and expand my music experiences to create something new, as well as meet producers across the world.

  2. To build or join a strong network / community for musicians: reaching out to DJs, producers, musicians to learn and share experiences to allow for sustainable success. Thus connecting to vital productions groups, clubs, and other live music businesses to put on bigger shows.

  3. Spread my music: I'm totally dedicated to reach a world wide audience which will allow for a successful career

  1. Music has been my life since I can remember

  2. It gives me opportunities to connect with and visit places I've never been before.

  3. It allows me to support other peoples art on a deeper level

  1. I want to make a difference in a male-dominated industry. I think it's safe to say that women have proved to be an asset in every single field previously denied to them. In the music industry women have always been present but up until recently only in the "talent" capacity and never in executive positions. I like being one of the persons changing this.
  2. I am good at it. It's an amazing feeling to be proud of your accomplishments. Working in the music industry allows me to experience it. Yes, sometimes it's soul-crushing when my efforts don't pay off but when they do, I feel like I have super powers
  3. For the groupies. When I grow up, I want to be just like my hero Mallory Archer - sassy, drunk and hitting on younger men. I think a position in the music industry will be a perfect setting for this behavior.

Seeing how the vast majority of people reading this are aspiring to work in the music industry as well, tell us your reasons as well! We wanna know!!!
