Musical stuff

When a modern musician gets well known, people sometimes ask about their creative process. It is unlikely that anyone will ever ask me about my creative process.

Nostradamus was not a modern musician, but has been credited with amazing works of prediction, here's how he described his creative process.

Sitting at night in secret study,
Alone placed on the brass tripod:
A slight flame comes out of the emptiness,
Makes successful that which should not be believed in vain.

David Byrne is a modern musician,[*] who in this video explains a musical approach which is very likely similar to many other musician's creative process, it is semi-gratifying to know it is similar to mine.

[*edit this used to contain a good link, but now it is not good , and I replaced it with the youtube video. The original text was "here's a great article about his creative process" ]
