At this week’s rehearsal we came up with a new song! It’s not entirely finished yet but the start to a great song, for sure! This week has been tough so far because we have a lot of homework and classes.. But then again, we also have each other and that’s really nice, to have friends. : ) And of course, those two hours a week when we go play music.. Those are great too! At the rehearsal Jade took some pictures. Often when Elvi is figuring out an instrumental bit on the piano, Jade gets bored and starts walking around and playing with everything she can find (she also exercises like you can see in one of the pictures below). Now and then she comments “maybe something more evil here” or “maybe a little warmer there” and then Elvi continues. That’s how the songs are made really, all of them: our way. It’s like we turn on this ‘creativity’ button and get inspired by everything around us. All of our brains’ parts get linked with each other and we start to write, based on our emotions and instant thoughts. It’s a very fun process, come to think of it. We usually write the basis of our songs in about 2 hours. Then of course, they have to be recorded and we add other instruments and all that, but fundamentally, 2 hours is all it takes. Magic, right?
