Etre artiste selon David Ackert

« Artists are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime…

Every day, artists face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again. Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream. With every role, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment. With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life – the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. Why? Because artists are willing to give their entire lives to a moment – to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul.

Artists are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another’s heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes. »

Oui ! être compositeur demande le don de soit probablement. De là à toucher les étoiles ou le sacré je ne sais pas? Par contre, je suis heureux de faire de la musique à mon niveau. Oui ! des personnes écoutent sans doute nos créations; parfois ils n'aiment pas et parfois on les touches. Cependant, exprimer une attitude ou un acte qu'il soit musical ou à travers un autre art ne concerne pas n'emporte qui. Certains en on besoin plus que d'autres. Le résultat n'est pas égal pour tous mais l’expression demeure et c'est cela l'important.
