I love the creative process ~ the medium is almost secondary to the actual feeling itself. The idea.

I wrote “Simple Trouble” on Election Night, as the polls were being counted. I kept a web browser open, checking in every 30 minutes or so to see how far ahead Barack Obama had climbed. I finished the 1st draft of the tune as he was beginning his acceptance speech. Usually when I’m composing in Reason, I don’t have any other music or news or anything on. I kind of retreat into my shell and dig around for what is, hopefully, some Inspirato. Because Inspirato cannot be manufactured.

But this was a little different, and I can’t help feeling that maybe I was just a little more hopeful that evening ~ we all have our own ways of documenting important moments in our lives, and writing music is one of mine.

bon appetit!
