Why I do This

June 22nd, 2009, 9:28 am

I guess when I make music, or try to make music, I seek to make something that will stand the test of time, and universally be percieved as great music. To this end, the means sometimes becomes making things a bit too pretty. Then I realise that the very little music that is universally recognised as great. People have different tastes, you know? So then I find that simply being myself is a happy medium.

One thing I find that helps me get creative is resting. Thinking creatively comes more natural for some than it does others. For me, I have to be well rested, or I will just sit there all day and nothing will happen. You know what I found that helps me rest? Covering myself with a weighted blanket amazon. The extra weight really makes for a more comforting and soothing feeling. I not only fall asleep right away, which before I discovered this it was a problem for me, but I also wake up feeling better rested. I’m not sure if this solution will help everyone but who knows, maybe it’ll help someone out there.
