Writers block is a bitch. It seems like it’s been forever that I haven’t written anything that grabbed me, or slogged through finishing something just to finish it only to hate it later. When I get like this, it’s like having audio dysmorphia. Not matter how many times I look in the mirror, it doesn’t look like it’s me staring back.
Recently, I was in the studio working. Well, not really working. I was playing around with one of my synths and something on the modular. I recorded a little of it and messed around a bit in Live. When I played it back, something happened that hasn’t happened in a long time. “That’s NoiseTheorem!” I thought. I had finally seen myself in the mirror.
It’s hard to put my finger on what it was that actually triggered that reaction. I instantly had more ideas for the track and took down some notes. I’ve been playing with sounds since to find timbres that match what I have in my head. I hope I can sustain this one. It’s been *too* long.
