Bank of Sound :Toxic positivity

I discovered Toxic Positivity

on Soundcloud.

Toxic Positivity is made up of Sacremento , california nased Billy Sync – music producer, song writer, musician and does the incredible Album artwork. Nate Gessenger does is an auto emigineer who does the mastering.

Nate currently works for DNA MUSIC LABS

There was something about this song that brought me back into the present. It had a tranquillizing effect on me. The waterfall intro, the birds tweeting. follows in harmony in tune with nature & I couldn’t predict where this narrative of sound would lead to. It is a playful, natural & melodic track with a hell of a drop that left me riding out the wave. A Simply beautiful arrangement of sound.

It has that organic unprocessed essence to the track. He has released 3 Albums

Strange Elevator music -(June 2020)

Tulpamancy -(March 2020)

Deluge ( Dec 2019)

He states

However, each track is unique and produced from a live performance of synthesizers, and sequencers, primarily surrounding the Deluge. About half synths, half sample-based. Besides mastering, no software is used.

I’ve asked Toxic Positivity to be a part of the ongoing project THE CREATIVISTS HOUR.

 

Toxic Positivity has been recently been featured on AcidTed & Loodma recordings SoundCloud base featured his track on their station.

Taken from his Soundcloud Bio

I like being transported to another place with music. Sounds the listener defines as pleasing takes them to a profound state of contentment and happiness. But is this as far as we can go?

Feelings of confusion and alienation can also be tools to an altered state. Instead of turning off music that initially repels oneself, embrace it. Realize you are being haunted by ghosts of another world. Do yourself a favor and go listen to My Life in the Bush of Ghosts by Brian Eno and David Byrne right now.

When I asked TP what three words come to mind when he thinks of Mental health & creativity

His reply: —– PROCESS IS PAYOFF

It’s interesting how TP’s musical journey started.

I started making music because I had some minor physical health issues and wanted to be able to spend more time indoors creating. After i started I then went through my first ever mental health issues (anxiety/depression) and soon realized how beneficial music and the creative process, in general, was to my mental health.

In his CREATIVE HOUR FEATURE, Toxic Positivity touches on interesting points about the need for creativity and finding a way to not let his projects affect his mental & physical health.

He is also insightful about the importance of being creative & finding a community to share your ideas with -as scary as it is. It is important not only to create. the part of the creative process should be to connect and communicate with other people. It helps our overall wellbeing & can lead to other creative endeavors. or collaborations.

TP will also elaborate more on

I will address my personal philosophy about fun vs. work when it comes to making music self-doubt was difficult to overcome being an outsider to any established professional music industry.
