Well, it has been less than a month and here I am popping for you not one, not two, but yes 4 articles in April. I have to say, I am kind of proud! As you all know, I’ve been taking some time off the blog to focus on music but writing has always remained an absolute necessity for me. So even though there were months were I would show no news, and disappear from the landscape, I still feel the need to keep coming back here. Kayture has become a home by now and it always feels so good to have this platform to connect with you all, to share and express everything freely. I hope that’s what here feels to you to this day too, a bubble of escape. A little glimpse through a window.
Most of my writing lately has been done for music purposes but I’ve also been doing a lot of personal writing, poetry, quotes, small essays… All different things I keep to myself for now while waiting for the right time to make something out of it all. That might be why my articles on here where a bit shorter, less intricate as they sometimes (mostly often) are. Which actually might be a good thing, I’ve had several people come up to me asking me how in the world I was able to come with such dense, and heavy subjects. It feels good to write on a lighter note though. And the reason is that I’ve been pouring so much of myself into my music development that I feel completely emptied out by the end of each session. Any thought I had, any idea, any word would all serve the creative process. So by the time they are out of my system, I am completely drained. It feels like I’m almost too tired to even speak as everything that needed to be said has already been. So I just let the music speak for itself.
I also started appreciating writing smaller format texts. Like short poems that within 4 sentence resume an entire feeling, and entire experience, a whole story even sometimes. It strikes the heart, the root of the thought and in a brief moment brings total clarity on a perspective. I love how poetry speaks on it’s own and makes it’s own way in people’s mind. We each have our own interpretations based on our own experiences. I love this idea of letting something out of ourselves and allowing it to make it’s own path. We often have such a personal attachement to creation, we become possessive with it and won’t let anyone else have it. But the beauty of art is the collectivity. Building momentums, visions, inspiration, thoughts that will eventually lead into new questions and new art. each artist serves it’s time, thus art is limitless and evolves in cycles. Those who keep their precious creations to only their own will never know the joys of giving birth to an idea that can then lead to another, completely independently. It’s perhaps the closest we can get to selflessness and perhaps even immortality in some way. To me, creating is like giving birth. It’s a way of leaving legacy behind, marking our time, and giving something that’ll outgrow our own selves. Allowing life to take it in and become part of the bigger picture.
With this being said, it was absolutely fantastic to be back again this year in Palm Springs for the 2017 edition of Coachella with Revolve. It is always such an inspiring time with so many fantastic performances to assist to and overall energy that is just so uplifting and contagious. Over the years, Revolve has become like a second family for me in the US as I’ve known their team for over 5 years now and have witnessed their incredible growth. It is always so heartwarming to be a part of such evolution and watch your friends succeed at what they love. The whole Revolve team is inspiring in that way, their work hard / play hard motto has never been more true and they keep proving it. This year not only did they bring people from all over the world in but they also created a whole Revolve hotel for us all to stay in and hang out before hitting the festival. Needless to say, it was a real party spot with music bouncing from 9 till 10pm and everyone hanging out while looking more sharp than ever. Here’s a little article relating some of the looks I wore during this week-end that Cibelle and I shot around .All details of outfits will be linked bellow. Hope you guys will enjoy! x
