Today, everyone has left the house and I’m alone. They’ll be coming back around at night, and I was doing some workouts on the floor when I realized that it was dusty again. Has it been a week since we vacuumed? I vacuumed the floor and did the dishes – and then suddenly, one after another, amazing pieces of music started coming into my head. I sat in front of the piano and recorded four themes that I think can be used for Garden Warrior – the game that I’m currently working on with Little Pebble Studios. Roughly about 11 minutes of musical ideas came out from doing chores. I think chores personally allow me to relax and reach into my subconscious without trying to overcome a writer’s block. Then it clicked in my head: It’s always been like this – my major compositions always came from chores.
So I learned something very valuable today. Do the dishes and clean once in a while. For others’ good and for my own good as well. 🙂
