Blind and clueless before you get ideas

Sound design and production in general

Postby Soundphase » 10 Jul 2018, 00:05

I started thinking about this phenomenon that producers face. It seems to me that if you sit at your DAW with a blank project, it's impossible to know what you can do until you have a good sound to work with. For example, I made sounds before and then left them behind because my kick didn't fit with the atmosphere of the sounds. So I start with a kick most of the time, and make new sounds which fit with the kick. In the initial process, it seems that I'm blind because I don't know what my kick will demand, and I don't even know how my kick may end up sounding when it's finally finished. I tried using my intuition before instead of my senses and tried to blueprint everything at the beginning. But I find that it leads to a lifeless result 90% of the time. I think that experimentation is the key, and not expecting anything before you start. Any thoughts on this?
