it’s Lucid Podcast time again (snare roll)… David Alvarado crafted an exclusive dj set in a chicken house and answered some questions below… bock bock boooock… here you go! Thank you David :-)
1. Lucidflow: How does a creative day look/feel like for you?
My creative day usually starts with either movies or some sort of visual inspiration. I’m a very visual person, I see things and imagine them musically, sonically. I’m very inspired by my surroundings, if the sun is too bright I’m useless. I thrive in gray moody, rainy, environments. I also read quite a bit, sometimes phrases or words or even syntax inspires me. One of my favorite poets is E.E. Cummings and he is famous for his minimalism and use of syntax.
2. Lucidflow: How do you hinder yourself in being creative?
I over think. Over complicate things. I’m also obsessive compulsive. I need to have things in order or else they will bother me and keep me from being free in my mind to create.
3. Lucidflow: how do you support yourself in being creative?
I don’t try to force myself. I also have to eliminate as much distraction as possible. I know myself pretty well and what conditions feed my creativity so I do my best to ensure I only try to work under those conditions, otherwise I get frustrated and will become disinterested.
4. Lucidflow: How did you come across Lucidflow?
Good question, I don’t know lol. I don’t recall exactly, but I think it’s been a collision that has been progress for a while now. We just seem to have gravitated towards each other unconsciously. We seem to be made of the same sort of material, and I guess like minds seem to gravitate towards each other.
5. Lucidflow: Tell us one of your greatest wishes:
To buy a farm, make a studio in the barn, make goat cheese, and raise chickens…
6. Lucidflow: Anything else you would spread to the Lucid world?
Beauty lies in the spaces in between and magic happens in the accidents.
