A cliché or cliche is an expression, idea, or element of an artistic work which has become overused to the point of losing its original meaning, or effect, and even, to the point of being trite or irritating, especially when at some earlier time it was considered meaningful or novel.
The first problem with the concept of cliché is that those that claim something to be cliché are the non-believers. They probably never tried whatever they’re mocking and, in doing so, have never tasted, seen, and experienced its fruit and/or benefit. The second problem is that they want to put their disbelief on you. If they don’t believe, then you shouldn’t either.
Here’s the catch…
There will come a day when you offer the world your music and, probably, most will claim your venture into such creativity and offering to the world to be cliché.
However, part of music being music is that it’s not for the masses and some will call it noise. It’s for the unique few…even if that means millions…it’s not for billions.
Part of the richness of life are those joy swapping moments with the people who believe what you believe and that rally behind, around, and in your music.
Outsiders will call letting your music play cliché.
We’ll call it fulfillment.
