The Creative Process #11 Luna Amară (w/ Mihnea Blidariu)

What are the actual steps that you take when you are creating? Do you need to enter or go to a certain setting in order to get creative?

LISTEN TO WAR ON WOMEN’S ‘CAPTURE THE FLAG’ LP IN ITS ENTIRETY

Baltimore’s War On Women were born screaming—at the world, at the status quo, in the face of oppression.

The Creative Process #11 Dominique Charpentier

What is the main art form that influenced you in creating? Was it only music or did movies and other forms of art influenced your creative process?

That is why my two main musical influences are Yann Tiersen and Ludovico Einaudi. I first heard their music in movies.
