The Creative Process #16 Hymns for the Angels

What are your future plans and what advice do you have for people that want to get into creating music?

My future plans are to continue making music. I have some exciting things planned, along with a lot more music inside that needs to come out. My advice is to make music that is true to you. Theres only one you, so be true to your story. Don’t be tempted to tell anyone else’s story.

The Creative Process #15 Ziggurat

Except art are there any other external or internal factors that influence you when you create, if so what are they?

I feel like the music I’ve making in Ziggurat has had a more darker, dramatic tone due to my increasingly negative view of society as of recent. Also, I’d say travelling affects the stuff I write for Zigg. For instance, the first track off our Preface ep was motivated by a trip to Germany/Austria back in February and in making the production for the song “Botheration” I was influenced by a past road trip through the Navajo reservations in New Mexico.
