art is a contradiction

I hope that I can build longevity with my tracks so that way farther down the line I can continue to innovate and create in the way that I've done for the past few years. Certainly, it's not been an easy experience finding others to listen and, I know I shouldn't feel this way, but it's kinda lame to have random ppl just dock your work and not even say why, or get feedback that's rather short-sighted. Despite this, I'm proud of myself for not taking the easy way out and putting stuff out to please people, or get popularity. Certainly I could have shaped my tracks based on obvious, recognizable melodies, or generic beats, or even sounds that are making it "in the charts." Many people may not understand why I craft my melodies and sounds the way I do, but ultimately, for me it's about achieving a level of musical understanding and innovation that I aspire to, and I don't just hand that out on a silver platter with a red ribbon on top for people to mindlessly enjoy. Yes, my stuff pushes people, and people don't expect that or sometimes dislike that. Or most times, I like to think they are unaware of that entirely. But even though most people consume entertainment like vultures, I think the vast majority of them are after what's real. And so, what a contradiction art is!
