|What is your creative process?
Listening. I just sit and listen for what wants to come.
Sometimes writing a song comes naturally, and other times it's a real challenge. I write about what I know. Such as past relationships gone wrong, break-ups, even personal family situations. I personally believe in being real with my music. That way my listener's can relate to the meaning of each song with their own personal experiences.
Live life, come up with music, and then write the lyrics.
i come up with ideas for riffs and work out the bugs in my ability to play them
usually hear something in my head or a song or some drums and it just gives me creative process and i just go in and do something totally different and unique
I don't really have a set process. But medicinal marijuana always plays a important part!
I usually just sit down with my guitars and amp and play. I start with the guitar parts, then the vocal melody then the lyrics. When I have the main body of the song finished I bring it to the rehearsal room and Chris and I finished it.
varies, but usually i start by sitting at the computer and listening to music my friends make, then that inspires me to write something and i will sit around making a beat for a while then write a keyboard line over it. then layer everything. its all done in ableton mostly
It can take place anytime, anywhere.
I'll get a melody or a string of verses, maybe a catchy chorus in my head, record it on my iphone or in the past some tape recorder. Then come back to it later and try to build more around it until I get frustrated. I usually have 5 different works in progress going at once. If I'm lucky a song will just write itself in a day. Everything will just fall into place and tada Song! But that's rare. Usually I'm just frustrated and struggling to fit all these pieces of 3 or 5 different puzzles together.
It just happens when it happens.
I would say I write to the music and wherever it moves me. I read a lot as well and sometimes that will inspire me to get creative. Experiences are important too.
If by myself, more often than not, I will sit down and just begin to play something I already know on bass, and then either expand from that, or randomly a new idea will pop into my head. If with my band, all of us get into our practice space together, and throw out ideas for parts, transitions, and riffs that we all simply work on together.
I listen to zomboy alot and bar9 aswell so wat I like to do is take different sounds and mash them up together in my head. Basically I have a certain rhythm in my head and I run with it and put it onto the computer as soon as possible
