THE EXCEEDINGLY VAGUE MUSICIAN RANT
it's near impossible to trace the thought processes, the reasoning behind the creation of music, especially something as abstract and intangible as electronic music, especially wot'ever the hell I'm cooking up at the moment.. all I can say is, it's currently running under the codename "ASPHYXIATE" (which may, or may not.. be the actual final title of the song..)
It's kinda like a human tuning fork, you're a medium translating experience / existence into musical flow - you sit there, surrounded by your sound generating tools, empty your head of all preconceptions.. and just continually tap into new frequencies, new rhythms, new beats, new melodies, occassionally new lyrics.. until, one of them resonates with wot you're thinking / feeling.. and you add that to the pile..
soon you have a small orchestra of these funkin' deep n manevolent sounds that resonate with you, for reasons you can't quite put your finger on.. but somehow it all makes sense in ya head....
with a bit of work, you mix these seperate elements together, constructing it into something that others can groove to / relate to / resonate with.. and eventually you got y'self a song..
there's no real set rules to follow, just instincts..
if it sounds right to you.. it's wot it's meant to be..
people afterwards ask ya.. "so, wot does it all mean?"..
and seriously, I wouldn't have a clue..
it meant something in the creative process..
it means something now..
but, in the end.. the only way to describe it's intent..
is to let the song speak for itself..
