Marlon Dean Clift

About: Marlon Dean Clift

A wide range composer and performer that doesn’t believe in genres but in music.

My music is for the masses and for individuals. Utopian? No. The problem we face today is the poor musical education of the masses, in the figurative or literal through the labeling applied to artists and their work. All supports a good head, is a statement that I sold long ago.

Today, the musical discussion tends to be poor and capricious, based on anecdotal rather than on technical or conceptual; and even on that basis, poor terms are released in form and substance. But I’m not delving into anything.

The music press is the best example of that aridity in music education. It leads by invoking references or comparisons. Artists are granted identity in this popular form and denied the unknown. That is the great absurdity of the music industry bubble: The vast majority of musicians and music lovers are indoctrinated to label categories, because they are highly permeable and conditioned…But that is not the only Great Cultural Problem; Just Boast of rebellion and all that underlies the natural state of things when submitting music to the social cultural environment and you will find that all preliminary agreements and contacts are out the window.

And for all this I have reached that wonderful point of maturity where you know the drill, distinguish, authenticate…Culture offers a playground game, where you simulate infinite intelligence and virtue but that has never interested me, and so one should really not be interested if one seeks real development, especially when one is figured to be considered socially wrong.

Masic as Expression

Do you really understand what you hear? I ask myself daily, why I do what I do and not what those who judge me do. Judges watch from the sidelines, pretending to participate in Art when they really only repress the impulse that feeds it. They judge and think they can coerce music to their influence.

The artist is not a servant, the artist is one who seeks when filled with wonder and vision and creates without questioning.

All this has been said before and better, I say it because I just need to remember it Everyday, if possible…
