Q: Do you use music for inspiration? If so what do you listen to?
A: I don’t typically use music for inspiration directly. I’ve certainly tried having a playlist for a specific project, with the idea of getting back into the right frame of mine for that project, but I dropped that after I created a ton of playlists in a service that didn’t survive the first big internet company implosion, and I haven’t gone back to the practice since then.
On the other hand, I love song lyrics, especially ones that involve wordplay. In general, I usually take inspiration from wordplay and permutations. I love to see where a prompt will take me, and I enjoy it just as much when the final result is so far from the original prompt no other eyes can see the path.
