Inspirational Listening

I know what inspiration feels like - but it's not often easy to identify it's source. For the first time in a long time I came home, checked out the Sprawl Electronic's favorite SoundCloud tracks and just let myself drink in other people's work. It's great to hear all the surprisingly nice production people are doing "out there". Sometimes one can get so consumed with trying to figure out what they should be doing "next" that they don't make time to listen to what other contemporaries are doing. And sometimes that's inspiration enough. Breathe, "drink in" and see what sticks and perhaps even consider why - or not. I've added a few of these faves to my fave SoundCloud list and I'm diggin' some greatly varied tracks. A nice thing to do following dinner with friends from out of town.

Here's an improv I did on my iPhone last summer... or was it two? It's freely downloadable.
