Up early. My go to for a while was to scramble together some kind of expression, a mixture of sonic and visual. My beacon choice for a long while was my Instagram. There was a time when I treated the account as a kind of parody network and I placed a lot of energy into it but that was before I upgraded my musical equipment and became closer to my goal. So yesterday for the first time I decided to not have that be the morning creative activity and set my IG on a hold pattern: no reliance on Throwback Thursday, no cobbled together expressionism. Today I devote the ever so brief amount of time before work, to better familiarizing myself with not the amazing enormity of what my chosen hardware ( Ableton with Push2 ) can do generally, but specifically what I need it to do for ME.
