5 CREATIVE TACTICS FOR MUSIC-MAKING INSPIRATION

As a musician, sometimes inspiration can be hard to come by and writer’s block is a common problem. Let’s look at 5 unusual techniques to overcome this creative roadblock. Do subscribe for more videos like this and ring the bell to keep up to date with our notifications and deals. 

Rewrite a track. This exercise involves remaking a popular track in your own DAW, then deleting the MIDI itself but keeping the instruments and effects. Use this sound palette and create something new. This is a great way to challenge your creativity, from a familiar starting point.

Mix musicians in a room. Imagine that a group of favourite musicians are in the same room. For example,  Metallica, Hans Zimmer and Dua Lipa. What kind of music would they create together? This visualisation method can help meld different styles into new concepts, as you think about the influences each creator would bring to the table.

Map out your track. Grab a pencil and paper and draw out the structure of a new track using your artistic talents. Then, translate these drawings into music, creating a soundtrack to your visual timeline. This method can bring unexpected new structures to your music.

Leave your instrument behind. Put away your favourite guitar or synth, and try using other instruments that you may not be as familiar with. This will challenge you to think about notes and timbres in a new way and disrupt your normal production process.

Write audio to picture. Choose an action-packed video from YouTube, a nature documentary or a TED Talk. Then write audio to accompany it. After you’ve finished, delete the picture and see how the audio stands on its own. This will help you focus on your music’s emotional impact and create powerful tracks away from the visuals.
