As Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock— two of the 20th century’s most consistently innovative musicians—suggest, artists at all times need a set of guiding principles.
First, awaken to your humanity
Embrace and conquer the road less traveled
Welcome to the Unknown
Understand the True Nature of Obstacles
Don’t Be Afraid to Interact with Those Who Are Different from You
Strive to Create Agenda-Free Dialogue
Be Wary of Ego
Work Towards a Business without Borders
Appreciate the Generation that Walked Before You
Lastly, We Hope that You Live in a State of Constant Wonder
Sparkplug (www.sparkplug.it) is an online marketplace where musicians and local businesses offer their instruments, equipment, and space (like rehearsal rooms or studios) for rent.
It offers the opportunity for artists to make money renting out their instruments, gear, and space, and save money by renting from local musicians and small businesses.
