Plagiarism is a bad and unprofessional, musical influence is something very different. I don`t know what is the line of decency between this two ideas, but I`m convinced that we`ll recognize the moment when that line is crossed. Well correct me if I`m wrong, but I never have heard any plagiarism that has achieved success as great as the authentic music . It also refers to the background music.
You will find authors which much like to copy/paste of others work, well… can hardly be called authors., and there are group of authors who prefer to soak up different influence and generate music on their own way. Everyone needs to be on that way, the clear way of originality. We all have our absolute favorite authors, artist, music genres where we’re feeling better, but originality is what remains .
It could be seen from two angles, we can easily notice that trough artistic view and that we can take a look by financial moment . Every heartfelt artist want to leave a large legacy behind him. Authenticity ‘s what is only counts. For example take The Beatles, brought not just a new sound, but the whole concept of life. Their significance is indeed great that even today people all over the world with much pleasure paying attention to their music. And from financial viewpoint , well..take for example The Beatles! -) Certainly it took a great deal of factors that make them so excellent, but in my view, the originality was one of thecrucial things.
Authenticity is an essential moment for any of the arts. This is exactly what maintains and improves the arts. In music, authenticity of numerous authors led to the appearance of countless music genres, whether it’s vocal music or instrumentalsinstrumental music . Thanks to the authors who gave themself and a part of their life concept into their music, music continues to be evolving.
I would add an important point, perhaps the main…however you happen to be directly or indirectly influenced by some author or artist, you must always try to put your authentic expression, because one day your originality would be the only which will apart you from the other people .
And at the end, power to the originality !
