When restrictions are good…

I have been reading recently of a good way to find inspiration when it’s lacking.

Because although the word ‘restrictions’ is not popular at the moment, putting restrictions on your creativity can work.

If someone asks you to write a song, it can be hard to know where to begin.

But if someone asks you to write a 2-minute song in the key of B minor about a baby giraffe finding it’s feet, it might be unlike anything you have done before, but all of a sudden you have something to play with, and a place to start.

I didn’t ask Drew Maitland to send me a 15-second promo for tonight’s show with bold yellow writing and only 7 seconds of music, but he did. And it’s perfect.
