It’s hard to maintain your own voice when your in a genre that demands outdoing some of the greatest composers of our time (Andrew Bird, Sufjan Stevens, Owen Pallet). I’m not quite sure Lear has outdone these greats, but he’s certainly held his own creating a beautiful composition, crafting string sections along with his band and structuring his moments cleverly.
With technology growing exponentially, personal computing is challenging the recording business and the internet is challenging the publishing business. Now more than ever, we see the pool of music and design growing deeper. But as always, the more there is, the harder it is to find what matters.
Dingus is dedicated to the hunt. Scouring the web, fighting through the pollution to find those truly worthy of historical notation. It's here, on this humble blog that we shed light on the underfunded, under-appreciated bedroom artists of the modern generation.
Everyday we see hundreds, if not thousands of projects posted and everyday we look and listen to find the ones that matter.So if you want what's popular, this is not the blog for you . If you want what's honest, pure and passionate then you've somehow landed on the right URL. So stay tuned and enjoy your fellow peers' endeavors.
To the artist: however you reach your community, always feel free to send us your work. Just remember; art is not a business, it's not a market, it's not a popularity contest. It is only a cultural vessel to live within and any other thinking is unacceptable.
