The Creative Process #19 Blackfilm

What do you consider the most important traits that a song and an album must have before you consider it to be completed?

I don’t think there is one thing, it’s just when you say enough is enough and are happy with the way something sounds .You could keep working on songs forever and constantly change them but there comes a time when you think you can leave it now.

How long does it take to go from a song to an album from scratch to the fully recorded version?

I think it’s all dependent on how much you work on it. For me I think 8 months to a year is a suitable time frame. Usually when I think a track is complete, I will go for a week to a month, months of not working on it at all, and revisit it later to see if I feel it needs to be developed more.
