I’ve always been fascinated with the spaces that people choose to be creative in. Whether that’s scribbling in a notebook on the bus or locking yourself away in a little annex of your home in a bid to find your muse, creative spaces fascinate me. Another contributing factor to my curiosity is the fact that there’s a recording studio at the end of our garden, a place where many people’s ideas have been brought to life. Why do we choose the spaces we do to tap into our creativity? Why do some people need the inspiration of a view, while others find a window distracting? Are these spaces only frequented at night, and are they somewhere musicians escape to with clockwork discipline or only when inspired? So to get some answers, I thought I’d start a series on the blog to ask musicians about the spaces they work in, so I hope it’ll be of interest to regular readers and new visitors.
The piece will (hopefully) be accompanied by a photo submitted by the musician that captures their space.
First up, it’s King Creosote. After that, pieces will appear fairly regularly and there’s some interesting folk lined up.
