How To Master The Creative Mind – Part 1

How to understand what the creative mind is and how it works, defining, and starting to think about how to train and make your creative mind do what you want, when you want.

A definition of what the creative mind is, how it functions and operates, and that once you know this, you can train it and get it to do what you want.

It’s split between conscious and unconscious. Creativity is less in words and more in feeling and emotion, like a whisper, not the chatter of the conscious mind.

Life events can knock it off it’s stride, so be ready for that.
But it can be trained, disciplined, but it also needs rewards and a break so it can be in good enough shape to do what you want when you want.

A Thousand Miles Of Night

A Thousand Miles Of Night another interesting addition to the 2nd wave, with Dreaming In Pain set to follow shortly. I nearly forgot, Wake Of The Alpha Wolf makes the fire fuelled three.

I’ve disconnected a lot of sites, people and numbers after gaining great clarity along with upgraded creativity.
No more Facebook, only an artist page, no more Myspace, Linked in, CD Baby, Reverbnation.

Twitter has been cleaned out unless I learn something from the information, Soundcloud has been cleared, no more “follow me” whores. But I will keep it alive as it has proved productive. Youtube remains for now, but I will cut out anything and anyone that wastes my time.

It’s actually quite liberating to see things for what they really are. There is finally some new record label interest in my new cuts too. It will be a while before that comes out, so in the meantime, looking for a home for the remaining tracks.

The Electro is strong in the first wave and evolving in the 2nd. It’s going to leave a big batch for people to choose from.

Still discovering, still learning how to best tap into the new creative underwold city that I now have the key to. I don’t think I will ever run out of places to explore there…..some days it looks like a brand new cityscape, others like an ancient city a thousand years old, always changing and growing as I walk past every street.

Furious Flames – No Borders or Boundaries

Why do artists peak, burn out or go crazy? Because their creative beast has had enough and refuses to move.

It’s not a slave, it’s sentient like a seperate entity, just stuck within your soul. You are the vessel.

Now I understand if you treat it with the respect it deserves, reward it, challenge it, don’t let it get out of shape, it will stay fighting fit, ever growing and morphing, for as long as you need it.

It has no limits and no boundaries, but needs rewards and achievements to continue.
You wouldn’t carry on working like a dog for nothing would you? So why should your creativity.

It’s emotive, so it needs to feel emotion, happiness, darkness, elation, love, thrills, experiences. They will keep it going and your ally for the rest of your life.

Experimenting and pushing what you do creates the challenge and achievement. Improve the mix, bass, motion, feeling, loudness etc all satisfies that beast.

This is track 29 since december 2010, proof that these theories work. These are the best tracks and they go on improving because they’re not the same as what went before.

People always expect the same, which is why people peak and die, trapped in a box by pressure.
The bass and loudness, not to mention the blurring speed of motion created by this tune , wouldn’t exist without experiments. Some experiments have to fail for others to succeed.

After not giving The Ghost enough rewards for its efforts, I finally bought a blu ray player for 60 quid at Sainsburys, a bargain.

30 Days Of Night looks great on it, and the first Hi Definition of any kind I’ve seen. A film tailor made for The Ghost and it looks and feels great to watch. So a few more blu ray discs will keep the creative beast going in future.
