Find a chance to break from the trends when you see a creative opportunity.
Unplug to rediscover your song’s core vibe. It's not uncommon to spend a lot of time and effort building out a full production of a song only to scrap it all and go back to its roots. We can become unable to hear that the song was already there, and it was working quite well before we buried it underneath too many well-intended ideas.
When used wisely, technology can be an incredibly effective tool for creating new music but it can also become the biggest hurdle in creating music that still feels musical. There must be a balance between efficiency and originality. We need to find tools to enhance our creativity, not to restrict, and certainly not to replace our creativity.
