Unlocking Creative Blocks

The proliferation of low-cost, powerful software and hardware doesn’t mean that making music is easy. Music-makers encounter many obstacles on the path to actually getting music finished – doubt, procrastination, fear of both failure or success, and boredom, to name a few.

This discussion series will attempt to uncover the causes of creative blocks, leveraging the insight of established artists working across a range of genres. Moderated by Dennis DeSantis, author of Making Music: 74 Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers, the artists will reveal how they get stuck, how they get unstuck again, and how they ultimately manage to get music made. In demystifying the struggles inherent in the creative process, we’ll identify solutions to common issues.
