I love creating music - whether it be writing and composing from scratch, re-writing lyrics often from another language into English, or simply covering a special song in my own style.
A magical process of writing songs:
There is often a moment of inspiration, where I stumble for my
notepad app on my phone and messily type down lyric ideas. Sometimes,
it's just one line, waiting patiently for the perfect opportunity to be weaved into
a verse, a chorus, a bridge. Sometimes, lines from different inspirations
are knitted together -- as if they belonged to the same spool of yarn
in the first place, now finally reunited into a blanket of words.
Most times, the rivers of lyrics swirl and splash and crash into each other,
their rhythmic, dynamic waves creating new rivers downstream that flow.
Down, down, down the song they flow.
The melody carries its syllables swiftly and safely to shore.
