A lot of what I like to do comes out of the love of hearing what different combinations of timbres and textures sound like together. Not that I worship at the altar of Brian Eno, but I liked his description of part of his creative process as "playing with paints." It's that joy of experimenting and finding something unexpected and interesting that keeps me doing it.
Yes....the "playing with paint" is spot on Forrest. I had not heard that before but as I painted first before writing music I have always thought along these lines and it is those unexpected moments that occur on the sonic canvas that inspire me to keep stretching more canvas.
How did this all start, this creative journey......somewhere, someone asked a question, my creative expression is the coming to terms with that question. Interpreting the meaning, It is not the answer. Anyway once you think you have the answer most often its just another question.
