Work vs Artistic Practices vs Other Artistic Practices vs Personal Life
This is something I find myself consistently thinking about and am grappling with currently in wanting to represent myself musically. I realized that there are likely many shades of opinion on the matter and I’m intested in what you do and why you chose that.
Being a working photographer and designer I have very purposely chosen not to represent my professional work online outside of my portfolio on my website. I do however hold a social presence and represent myself by posting my personal photography and more recently my music. I just finished an album and will soon likely be releasing it separated from the rest of my photography “audiance” if you will as I generally keep these practices segmented from each other to maintain focus and allow those audiences to get “what they signed up for” if you will. I also feel like this seperation allows me to not get as in the weeds into the process as I otherwise would as they stand on other own as opposed to being a single “project”.
And I guess that brings me to the questions. How to do you keep your practices seperated? Why? Why not? How does this inform your creation process across mediums? Do you only work with sound? If so do you keep it seperated from other aespects of your life intentionally or unintentionally and what do you think those effects are?
