In today’s EDM industry, Deadmau5 plays a central role whether you hate him or love him. People always tend to find ways to find flaws and with 6billion on the other hand theres just no clue about it. His mindset for opinions on the music world and his cynical ways had some fans the wrong way but some find the other side of the deadmau5 quite visible with their own eyes.
This past week, he appeared in a local Canadian High School in Milton to talk to students and encourage about exploring and helping out with the music department. He even spoke to them about the ways they could make their way in today’s cutthroat music industry and gave them some fleeting advice for building their own lives and carriers:
“Learn the basic principles and then you can use any tool to get what you want, I hate Illustrator, but I like Flash. You gotta Frankenstein it all together.”
When giving advice to budding musicians he focused on the specifics.He told the students to focus on learning the tools necessary that take part in today’s creative atmosphere and powerful they are in his own arsenal.
“Don’t follow the gospel of someone else.”
He gave the students the most important advice which was to make real life connections. He gave more importance in the fact to go out and meet people in real life.
“The most important connections I made were made in real life. I went to radio stations, ‘Can I intern here?’”
“My biggest advice to people who want to become rock stars is…don’t even shoot for that, unplug from social media, get off Twitter, get off Instagram and start learning the tools,” he said. “Music is the most subjective thing you could possibly do.”
Inspiration began to spark within the young people who were upclose and personal with Deadmau5 and with new life in the music department , a one-time afternoon fire-side chat ended up playing a role very crucial in the future of the Canadian Musicians
