|What is your creative process?
I often draw inspiration from several experiences and situations that I go thru. I often find myself to be most creative early in the morning, so I like to try and listen to beats at those times while starting my day to see what comes to me. I like to have silence and no distractions sometimes when in the midst of the writing process. I will just sit in a room for hours and go over ideas and concepts. Sometimes I will sit in total darkness and just look out into the dark and clear my mind and allow fresh thoughts to come in. I have several ways that I can find my " zone ".
Usually groove, play, record...
It varies from my deepest thoughts to a light conversation that sparks a concept to a record.I let the instrumental take me there you know.
Get inspired or create inspiration and take it from there! Always challenge myself, never stop experimenting or staying with the obvious. Always have fun, when that stops rest rinse repeat.
I do one of two things. 1. Hear a melody in my head, find words that sound good over it, and construct into a song that makes sense. 2. I pick a topic worth expressing, find the words I want to use (as uniquely as possible), and create a melody from there. A lot of times, I'll catch ideas from looking at pictures, street signs, advertisements, listening to conversations or natural sounds.
Pray, let God lead my hand, heart and mind.
Its very random actually, but usually it starts with an idea that just hit me, go grab my blackberry to record it and make some notes.
It is all about documenting my WORST ideas. Ideas can come from anywhere. It does not need to be a sloppy Guitar riff!
When documented, I have a database of what NOT to do, instead of what to do.
I know that it may sound strange, but is how I work.
Carefully pick through my beats. Then listen to the one I like the most for the moment then write whatever the music makes me feel starting with the hook.
usually the track catches me. when the track gets me then it usually speaks for itself. It feeds me the story or gives me the inspiration. Sometimes a track can make or break a good song. As long as I have some good ear phones than I am usually able to right almost any where.
Receive and transmit the funky groove
eratic.....being creative isn't a process...That's not the way art works.
The darker the sound/ melody / bass line the better.
Normaly I work around a drum beat and see what happens from there.
Mainly setting down a drum loop, then layering guitar, bass and keyboard over that. The digital process makes things much easier.
It depends on the song. Some are based on a melody I'll hum to myself and then learn on piano but most songs are based off a musical ideas in a certain key with a certain chord progression that I hammer out on the piano. Lyrics usually come later in the composing of a piece.
