Music Blog: Clout

Consistency? Clout? Attention? Reputation? These phrases are some of the things the students have been speaking of as we begin the Fall session. We’ve been working on are theme for the year which is Addiction. We all asked questions about what causes addiction or what begins the processes of being of doing things to be “cool”. The Students and I have come to somewhat of an conclusion on the subject. The push of having a balanced Follower/Following ratio. Friend lists need to be over 3,000 to be considered as someone with “Clout” or respect. Why try so hard to impress people you do not even collaborate with on a daily basis? Why not establish an marketing and business plan to allow the art to be promoted and loved for the same effort of chasing attention. Point is to be yourself and move close with your circle to build something special.
