Here are links to the two videos I played clips from:
- A TED Talk by Elizabeth Gilbert on nurturing creativity by externalizing inspiration.
- Louis CK speaking at a memorial for George Carlin, expressing how he was inspired by George's prolificness.
These are the posts on my blog that contributed to the presentation in some way. I'd recommend the "Wrap Up and Analysis" as a good place to start if you aren't looking for anything specific. It includes a list of all the books that were recommended to me during the interviews.
- Composers' Process Project: Wrap Up and Analysis
- Interview with Composer Christine Bougie
- Interview with Composer Allan Gilliland
- Interview with Composer David Binney
- Interview with Composer Andrew Downing
- Interview with Composer Dave Wall
- Writer's Block and "A Song of Ice and Fire"
- An Interview With Myself About Composition
- Books About Creativity That I Love (or at least own)
- Rest and Play: Enjoying Getting Stuff Done
If anyone has any feedback or other ideas or resources about composition or creativity, I'd love to hear about it - post a comment!
