It was nice being back in a pro studio after a long time. This was yesterday. Hidden somewhere in Govan is this cool multimedia facility. No signboards, nothing. The building’s facade was just regular – like just another block of flats. Getting within those walls presented another world entirely.
Environments inspire you. My friends and I checked in. It was going to be a session worth a whole day. After a tour of the facility, we got into one of the studios and laid out the plan. Work began.
But like I hinted, inspiration flows from quarters that you don’t expect sometimes. I got on the synthesizer to lay a bass sequence. The notes caused sparks in my friend’s creativity center. Straightaway, the plans turned around.
After several hours of hard work, we had come up with music that wasn’t anything close to what the initial plan was. And were we satisfied? Sure.
I got back home tired, but fulfilled. Plans do not necessarily have to be rigid. Good things happen when ideas from great minds are mixed with yours. Collaboration – with the right people.
