A few weekends ago I was sitting in my humble little home recording studio waiting for something to happen. I had a guitar in hand and a hot microphone and yet all I could do was sit there. I strummed a few chords and nothing remarkable happened. I’m sure you’ve been there. You’ve got that creative itch, but can’t dream up the means to scratch it. So I tried something new to get the creative juices flowing.
I work for Dreamstime.com which is a leading stock photo agency. I took 18 random images and challenged myself to write a song based on them. Why 18? That does seem like an odd number*. Well, it was the first two rows of images in the Editor’s Picks section.
15 minutes later I had a pretty decent little song! So decent, in fact, that when our CEO listened to it he got of one our designs on board to make this little video for it.
*Yes, I realize that 18 is actually an EVEN number!
