Ideas

Fleeting flashes of genius. Blips of brilliance. Dreams half-remembered. Ideas. Ideas. Ideas.

I should never underestimate how important a new idea could be – like in songwriting – I know it starts with a melodic idea and then a concept (hopefully) follows… an idea of how the song fits for me or for someone else.

Every song is unique. The more unique the idea, the stronger the song. I think great musicians know how to let the ideas flow and they know not to be too precious about them.

The idea is the most important thing for creativity but I need to have a lot of them, put them out there and play with them…work with them and then set them free.

I forget about them so I can have new ones.

These people/places have ideas that inspire me/madden me/keep me awake:
