I just fly in my dreams, and think in a situation, start to put words in a paper, and 30 minutes later theres a complete song :)
Meditation and playing the violin without restrictions, so new melodies are born.
Mikey B composes a riff or two along with the Bass player Ben, aka Benchacco, who then pull in the ever important drum beats from John, one of the original creators of the the INNRCOR Rythms. Then the ever so talented Jason magically ties everything in the music together with lyrics that touch the heart and sometimes, the very soul of Rock 'n Roll. Together they produce the sound of their combined influences. These influences are subtle but obvious at shows. More 60's than 70's, some 80's and 90's greats as well, without the onstage drama that was the demise of some of their ever famous predecessors.
I usually start by trying to find the perfect sound and chord structure, then the rest of the track pretty much writes itself. I deal with 8-bar phrases mainly, and I try as much as possible to make each instrument play something different
I like to take my time and think my rhymes out.
I write when I feel like writing.
I can't write when being forced to do it. I guess for me the creative process is a natural thing. When I have a few weeks off I always want to write as much as possible - but I can't...
It's like I would have to "refuel" my mind again firstly.
We try and change it up every time, so it's never the same.
I jump in, fully clothed, usually and unaware of how hot or cold the water is, or if its even deep enough to work with.
No plan- usually. If there is a plan, it is highly manipulative. I use certain tones and rhythms to stimulate parts of the body, such as different chakras and meridians, in order to encourage growth and healing in the human body. In electronic music, I like to paint rhythms and randomly shape beats, with no real idea how its going to end up sounding, just knowing that my process takes care of itself. So far- it works well
I really don't know what i'm doing most of the time. I'm a bit of a space cadet. I'd like to think I take my mind out of the process and allow my body to channel higher entities. Especially when I'm in an improvisational situation. I truly enjoy this process and understand that most people do not work this way. I feel very lucky when I am in the company of those that do.
varied, depending on whether I'm writing on my own, or with others, whether it's for myself, or for another artist. but it's always about the song and the melody.
Sometimes y just grab the guitar and start just improvising, then a song is comming, other times I make beats and rythms and I create from them.
I'm alone when things flow naturally, then I can write letters or melodies, but this does not happen every time I want, it comes naturally.
I usually start with a chord sequence and then develop the melody. The lyrics usually come last.
Way too vague of a question.
I listen to a track two or three times, start to brainstorm a format and idea, hot down a few notes, and then create a song from my notes.
Sit around until I feel like doing something. Then do something.
