+1 to vaisnava’s comment. I don’t know if everybody’s like this, but I constantly have some new song forming in my head, while driving, at boring meetings, etc.

As for actually being able to produce music, roughly 5 hours per week, give or take an hour or two.

Really good question! I think personally my creativity kicks in when something inspires me. I feel like being a successful artist is all about how often you can stay inspired!

I can come up with any music at any time.

BUT .... coming up with something that is actually ‘creative’ and not just not just something that relies on my technique, that is something I find quite difficult. Especially when tackling a major project such as a film / game, where the quality has to be consistent throughout the entire product.

I always ‘know’ when I am doing something that is ‘generic’ (by my standards) or not. When deadlines are tight it’s hard not to fall into what you know best.

Fortunately though, I’ve had some longer term projects which have allowed me to stretch my feet and create a unique sound.

I don’t think creativity – for me at least – is something that can be forced, but everyone is different.

I believe creativity can become a lifestyle, so it’s less about a quantifiable amount… and more about figuring out how creativity works for you. Creativity is fickle and needy, but if you take care of yourself and know how it works, you can tame the beast and get a lot out of it. Aside from that, persistence is always important… as long as you keep showing up, your creative monster will eventually show up too – but just like anything else, creativity takes practice, and the more you practice, the better you get. I think balance is just as important, and you can’t over do it. Rest, just like in exercise, is equally as important as working out that creative muscle!

I think roller coasters help too.
