Hey everybody :)
I'm so tired, oh so very tired. I'm up doing a quick video edit for work, nothing major. The rendering really does take its sweet time though, so waiting for that to finish so I can go hit the sack.
You know what gets my creative juices flowing? It's music. It has always been a good source of inspiration for me. It's not the beat, the speed of the music, or the instruments involved. It's the emotion it evokes. I do fully plan to write a trilogy one day. All the major scenes I have in my head are the result of some song or other that I really like.
You ever heard of the site called 8tracks? It's one of my favourite things. Essentially, you pick and combine different tags of music you would like to listen to. For example, If I want to go for a run, I might choose something like electro + energy or something along those lines. 8tracks will pull up a user made playlist which you can then stream to your phone or PC. It's really awesome, and I love it.
What I do when I go to bed is pick stuff that will chill me out and aid my journey into dreamland, so usually tags like chill + ambient + sleep or something. I found this gem last night in the playlist I found...
This song is amazing! I've listened to it so many times today. It doesn't quite spark a clear scene in my head, but I will definitely listen to it when I want some kind of inspiration. It's just... beautiful. I can't explain it better than that. I really need to listen to more stuff from this artist!
Weekend is finally here. Really looking forward to it :) anyways, go try 8tracks for yourself! I'm sure you'll love it.
