Creativity and originality are important abilities to possess. When I worked with underground artists during my teen years, I loved adding a bit of creativity to their otherwise normal tracks with interludes, sound effects, and other interesting dynamics. The first track I recorded for one particular artist began with an EQ resulting in an old low-quality radio sound. After a 2 second pause and delay effect, the unaltered song continued.


Sometimes, I’d apply that same logic with the CD I’d give them. I’ve received from awesome facial expressions from giving someone a blank CD that looks like vinyl that looks like vinyl or a miniature CD for a few tracks. Check it out.

Don’t look to just take an idea. Evolve it. Let it guide you to more new ideas.
