I'm just wondering, hope I posted in the right forum. I am progressing my craft of trance music and I just don't see any way to do it part time.

I know the big names (example: infected mushroom) do it full time but how about the lesser known artists are they able to support themselves by playing psy trance?

Gimme a shout. The reason I ask this question is I want to dedicate my life music production. However, I want to do it without starving

Make a side project with ultra commercial dance Club house music and hide your name. Then make music with passion with your real name?
I know some who does this to get financials to live and make the music they love.

You know I have thoght of that. I have also thought of maybe selling hip hop instrumentals and such. I just cant imagine being able to play out of country shows while working a day job, or having a good output of high quality music while working a day job.

well i think u be able to support yourself by playing psy trance and i thik it's hard to start but if you want it badly so you can make your career and you have to belive in yourself. because if you dont see yourself succeed you realy not be able to support yourself...

I'd be very surpised if there were more than a couple of people (the obvious big names) making a reasonable full time living out of psy trance in the UK. I'd imagine its the same most places.

True, well to me a reasonable living is 100k usd per year. Never make that in psy trance unless you are extremely lucky I doubt its even possible. Only careers that make over 100k are sales, medical, law yada yada yawn...If I were doing music I'd just want enough to survive. I have a number of supplemental incomes also.

Mate thats something like 8.000 dollars a month.You know many people that earn this ammount of money?That is 6000 euros a month for European citizens and very very few people have jobs that offer them salaries like this one.

A reasonable living in both USA and Europe is way below this ammount of money that you mentioned,not even half if you ask me.           Toodaloo Motherfuckers!!!!!

That is why I said reasonable to me. If I'm going to work a day job that is the kind of income that I'm going to have.

I must admit when I said "a reasonable living" - I wasnt thinking of 100 000 usd !! Thats a VERY good living...
