|How did you discover your creative territory? How would you describe it?
creativity takes time, but when it's good you know.
What the heck is "creative territory?" In 40+ years of performing and 20+ years of teaching I have never encountered this word. Obviously, this website made it up.
My creative territory? Hm, well. I guess I write mostly love songs.
By listening to a lot of music. And yet, very little when I consider how much more there is out there... My territory - what territory? I still don't know where or what that is...
I am still working on getting my sound. And I think this will never happen. Because the search of my sound is my actual sound.
Coming from an art and design background, I've always been into colours.
From a young age I realised I could "see sounds" as colours and shapes when listening to it.
As I became older and more into animation, I dreamed of one day being able to create the type of images and colours I see in my head when I hear music.
I also wanted to try it the other way round; by turning visual ideas and themes into music itself.
Initially my only goal was to tell a story through instruments (hence the themes of a lot of my material: "Polluted Beach, Find Yourself, My Visions" to name a few)
To me that all have a distinctive colour palette visually and I can completely close my eyes allow tracks like this to take me on a journey.
As time progressed my priority became more about making music for people to easily dance to then it did making music to listen to in depth (but I still aim to have an element of depth and progression within a track if possible)
I enjoy producing all styles but I must admit that the most joy comes from seeing people dance to it and feedback from people who enjoy what you've made.
I realised after working with two other very very talented people that I could not do the things they could do. I could see HOW they were doing it but it wasnt a way that I could be comfortable with working with music.
Thats absolutley fine but this is when I realised that I must have my own ideas, my own way of doing things and lo and behold you suddenly realise what you can be good at!
I think I've always found something great in making up melodies and harmonies, and putting words to them. It's just always been a part of who i am. My creative territory is basically just made up of song-writing, singing, playing the piano or guitar, etc.
It is the synthesis of music and art.
I can create in my head anywhere.
In the car,walking,in a cafe or at home.
As I answered earlier, I just felt a need to make music. At the beginning it was only making music for my satisfaction, but later, when I discovered the world of movies' and games' music, I decided that it will be my destiny.
I don't realy know how I discovered it, its just some thing I have always enjoyed so I decide to get more involved with it. And I don't realy know how I would describe it.
It was born with me. Music has been in my family for generations! It's a gift from
God deeply seeded in our genes.
I discovered my creative territory after being introduced to Dream theater, thanks o the almighty power of the internet. I started listening to more music like that, and found I liked it. I would describe the territory from which I create as "the ultimate train ride through the universe moving at warp 6! Ok, enough trek. But I see the stuff I create as scenery, and I picture a never ending train ride, "this train stops when I stop!"
My style is my own. I dont sound like anyone!
i was always very shy. my mum knew i could sing but i never sung infront of her or anyone. when i got into grade four i was at a different school and made nice friends. they went through a stage of singing all the time and then when i finally sung they were all shocked. i always knew i could sing but i didnt think i was that good. because of those girls telling everyone i could sing that made me grow the chops to audition for the australian youth choir. at 10 they told me i had 'overall ability". thats when i realized i could actually sing. that lead to me singing at the talent fest and my confidence in music and performing just kept growing from there.
