The Creative Process #9 Philipp Rumsch

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?

For me, the best environment to create something is set up by having a lot of time, no disturbance through internet or people and a pleasant, quite atmosphere and enough food and coffee ;-). I can work very good at home.

But sometimes I have to compose in between appointments, rehearsals etc. which can be inspiring too, because then you do not overthink things to much.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

There is no such thing as perfect happiness. There are moments when you dive into something that captures you totally, be it a song, a movie or a book, or working on something you enjoy, and you forget about everything else. Being able to do such things is what I perceive as happiness. If I would have to synthesize it in fewer words, that would be “your kid’s smile” for sure.

The Creative Process #2 Dordeduh

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?

My main influence was my inner drive. I knew I had to make music. I never really had the strong wish to sound like a particular band, or to write music out of social contexts. To be honest, I wanted to integrate spirituality in music, since the beginning, even if it wasn’t that clear in the beginning.

Muziktology Proust Questionnaire #14 Games Violet

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Emma: My idea of perfect happiness is getting to travel the world with my music.

Alex: I think that happiness is created in the mind and so I imagine that perfect happiness would have to be generated on the inside rather than through achieving or acquiring things. I say this, but I’ve not worked out how to actually reliably do this. I imagine that this is one of the main goals in life.

Muziktology Proust Questionnaire #10 Baba Dochia

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Lopi: laying in a hammock with my cat Inky, one foot hanging into a stream that flows nearby with warm enough water, its steady flow providing a relaxing tone to the scene. Two big dogs chilling around, and a small pagoda nearby, brightly lit inside, where my study/workplace is; mountain scenery surrounding us. Total freedom and independence from anyone and everything

Biba: crowd cheering. when a crowd is asking you to keep doing what you’re doing you know that you’re able to make people happy.

NoBijoux: no technical issue on stage + whiskey

Voicu: Succeeding in life with all your goals, whilst surrounded by your close friends and your loved one. And your dog, of course.
