DJING IS PURE EXPRESSION AND CREATIVITY BY MICHAEL SEIBERT
One hobby that I’ve recently been getting into is DJing and mixing. The main reason this is the case is due to going to live shows and being inspired by the magic that sometimes takes place.
DJ’s and producers can convey feeling and emotion, and make the audience feel exactly the way that they want them to feel. This is truer with some artists than others, but in its purest form, putting on a live show establishes a connection between the DJ and the crowd. The people there are taken on a journey, and where that journey ends up is decided by the DJ.
Taking a step back, it is easy to see that a well-done live show is a powerful form of art and expression that not enough people recognize as such. I think such a creative mindset is needed to be able to read a crowd, and in real time decide what you can do to enhance their experience, and then immediately working with your hands to do so.
Going to some of these live shows has opened my eyes to an area where there is so much creativity, where I previously thought there wasn’t any. If you can see a well-respected DJ/producer near you, I implore you to do so.
