My output for creating is increasing at an exponential rate.
Now I have my own mini studio set up I can unload my brain of ideas.
What I was unaware of was that holding unexpressed song ideas in my mind was stopping the flow of the new.
This is not to say that I do not believe in the minds unlimited capacity but somehow l was not exploiting it.
With my very basic productions I am able to outlay moods, motifs and melodies.
This is super exciting for me because I can now have conversations with other creatives and they can get an audible gist of what I want.
I can also call up references via Spotify and YouTube.
The luxury of this is never lost on me.
Last week I was able to talk through my new ideas and use video references where my work fell short.
On one particular song I wanted to highlight a movement I wanted the rythmn track to incite.
This is always something I am aiming for in my music - to get a physical and emotional response.
Beats, chord progressions and production techniques can all masterfully lead the listener in a certain direction.
I have also been asked to consider writing music for movement and film so now this skill is especially important.
Thanks for reading.
Please share. ;)
