The Game’s a Foot by Chelsea Ruth Lee https://api.jam-community.com/song/detail/4b6e4779-e348-11e7-991a-02fe9cf35e65
If there is anything that inspires my creative side it is music. Everytime I go to do any sort of creative thing, I am in need of tunes and beat, piano and synth alike.
I am in the process of creating a story that I hope will be both epic and immersive. I turn, always, to the creativity found in music for my inspiration. For the first number of chapters I relied on those grandiose scores from Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth films or the Wizarding world of Harry Potter. Sometime I would dip into the BBC’s Sherlock score.
What I found there was great, but it lacked the personal tone. It made my inspiration entirely dependent on the ebs and flows of someone else’s story. So, in very me fashion, I took myself to Music Maker and started creating.
It seems odd to take time away from writing in order to create music (music is not my strongest), but I have found myself scoring my own story. Yes, I am still depending on the wonderful creators to provide each musical instrument or FX to use, but I have the opportunity to work them together in my own way.
In the end, the process gets me fired up to write a scene that I envisioned in the creation of the song for that scene. This song (link above) is actually for a scene that is at least 7 chapters away.
I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed creating.
