the greatest impact of the creative process in my own
Beijing News: your songwriting process is not as natural as your music? “I write the first kind of song writing songs before?
Jason: both right. I usually want as much as possible according to their own good idea to song lyrics set a general direction. The “orientation” is very important, like a river began a directional flow, I just dive into the water on the line. This process requires a lot of experiments and improvements, my inner thoughts but also from time to time from the river to jump out, remain sober.As a creator, you must pay attention to their skills, but sometimes they have with nature a little, try not to think too much, let the emotions natural to show it.
Beijing News: Are you creative influence who is the greatest song?
Jason: different times, different people, every album, new artist can let me draw some new inspiration, new musical styles and patterns. I think only a continuing impact is my own – I hope it does not let you think I’m arrogant, but I might have written 80-100 songs per album, and then polished the real to be included in the album song; I can go back and listen to the work of 10-15 years ago, re-recollection of my progress, and learn from it, this is my motivation.
but having said that, I was influenced by many bands, such as: Dave Mathews Band, Belle & Sebastian, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Soul Coughing and Bob Dylan.the
music environment this style will not die
Beijing News: For the mainstream of American popular music – dance and commercial hip-hop, how do you see?
Jason: music re-processing of the human voice makes me feel a little sad. Although I sometimes like to DJ for the modification of the human voice, but if the lead singer of a band sound all rely on machine manipulation, it makes me feel disappointed. Now, almost all the musical elements are computer-generated, so I think it is best to leave a little humane elements inside.
I do not exclude high-tech musical revolution and the process of evolution of the music itself, the music will only continue in the future evolution and expansion along this road. I can imagine, soon after, the music will return to the acoustic instrument-based, but mixed, high-tech avant-garde sound. David Gray to do, “White Ladder” album, his use of computer-generated rhythms, his guitar and his original voice for the future music how to develop, is a good forward.
Beijing News: Do you think that acoustic-oriented style of music does not decline or demise?
Jason: This music style was forced underground, it will only be getting cool, because at that time, if you come up with a guitar, you will say: “wow, what is it?” Over time, it will naturally again into the mainstream – all of those who have in the ground floor of what will become mainstream, and will be developed to take advantage of the extreme. So, no, I do not think my style of music will die out.
life-loving surfing as an inspirational
Beijing News: do not play music when the wizard are doing?
Jason: 28 years old I began to surf the biggest hobby is it. Fortunately, my house is only 20 minutes from the coast, and back home each time, I would seize every opportunity to jump into the sea to ensure that the level of my surfing did not regress. I can manage very large waves.When I wear waterproof clothing, get on a surfboard, feeling everything is very free, while surfing for me is a kind of “inspirational”: difficulties encountered in daily life, I told myself met waves in different forms, they hit you as long as you like the face of the waves, like to handle it just fine.
Beijing News: Do you like to listen to what music?
Jason: I recently listening to some DJ music. The latest fell in love with is called the Pretty Lights, he can arbitrarily control of all sound, and use new technology to compose music. I also like Skrillex, half of his music is rock, the other half into the hip-hop, House, and so on – like a strange hodgepodge, but can integrate so well. He re-mix Doors “Breakn A Sweat” too amazing a
Whenever I ride my bicycle, and had risen to 60 yards, I’ll listen to some the Skrillex of music, or My Morning Jacket, Muse, this kind of music, a little heavier, and give you strength, so that you can tell yourself ” Nothing can stop me! “
This whole album is actually from the cover.
I have been a visual arts enthusiasts, first time I saw this cover I wanted, it looks like Love the word. Then I began to think, since I love to see in this picture, I will see in the mirror or in the face of my close friends and even strangers to love. So from this perspective, to start the creation of a love theme of the album.
when I was four parents divorced, my sixth grade for the first time experienced lovelorn heartbreak. Throughout the 20th-year-old, I think, I will eventually fall in love and who, as the feelings would take me with where to.
“love” this theme has been inspiration to me and my songwriting. In this ever changing world, I often thought: Why do not you write some songs about love, this world to the right direction? There are too many depressing music, TV all day lying on the bad news, so I want the feeling of happiness spread out.
I was in Antarctica, concerts, crazy enough, right? The tour most want to go to Eastern Europe and India (Click to watch the Indian film and television work, “test”) , before I have been to the southwest of India, Mumbai and Goa, but have never been to north and east. This is my first trip to mainland China, very much looking forward.
the places, my favorite is England, like ancient castles and soaring skyscrapers, filled with dramas. Antarctica is also my favorite, because there is no city, the busy and bustle of everyday city life, it is the ultimate expression of the nature and loneliness, for me, be able to go there is the highest honor.(This article Source: Beijing News)
