“I believe that there are many ways to be creative within the tools that we use.
Even though the tools are the same, there are still many possible outcomes.
The creativity comes from within.
The individual absorbs and consume the world around them, and their sub conscious processes all this.
The sounds you hear in your head.
The things you see with you eyes.
The emotions you feel with your heart.
All that combined with the technical knowledge of music and how to use your instruments, your software, your hardware etc.
Sometimes you have to detach yourself from the world too. Get away from the mainstream.
Sometimes you get caught in the flow and it grabs you and you can’t get away.
Go for a holiday. Live in another country. Listen to music that is nothing like what you normally listen to.
Same as before. Combine existing elements to make something new.
That is the essence of creativity.”
This is the email as is. Stream of consciousness with no editing.
