Top 5 Creative Tips for the Artist Musician

>> The ROUNDHOUSE WAY - The Way of DO

  1. Make heaps of stuff. We apply the same creative process to music as to visuals.
  2. (It is the ‘Do’ - mantra.) If you need to produce 12 songs for your next album - produce 24 and refine. Work quickly at this stage though : this is the free n easy ‘draft’ stage.
  3. Stay focussed. Mind like water.
  4. Accidents are your best friend. So many vital discoveries in science have been the result of chance. Deliberately build error into your process. Invest thought and systems into your creative strategies. Process above results. Forget our cultural notions of survival of the fittest (where only the best survive). Sometimes the best solutions are the least suspected. We are the scientists of sound.
  5. Cut n paste. After your draft stage : step back. Take the best bit from one and put with another. Experiment. Explore. Above all - don’t be precious. Serve the art and not the artist.
  6. Don’t be critical / judgmental. This is best expressed in the Edward de Bono ‘Six Hats’ method. Leave your ‘judgmental hat’ at the door. Do first. Access later. Critique constructively. Begin again.

Music is good. Art is fun. This is your life (so best enjoy it).

3 Science Discoveries - that were chanced!

  • Plastic
  • In 1907 shellac was used as insulation in electronics. In 1907, home chemist Leo Hendrik Baekeland experimented to produce a shellac alternative. Shellac was made from beetles and used as an expensive insulation in electronics. Baekeland’s experiments yielded a moldable material that could take high temperatures without distorting - thus was plastic born.
  • Coke
  • In 1886, pharmacist John Pemberton attempted to make a cure for headaches. He mixed together various ingredients. After eight years of being sold in a drug store , coke was marketed in bottles.
  • Penicillin
  • On day in 1928, biologist Alexander Fleming left his research area without cleaning up. Upon his return he saw a strange fungus on some of his cultures. He noted that bacteria did not survive near these cultures. Penicillin became the first antibiotic.
