Abstract
he most important factor in a creative mind, is the
confidence in that you can create. When I talk to people
about music and creativity, many often reject the top-
ic or excuse themselves by explaining that “They cannot
play the piano...?”, “they aren’t good at reading notes...!”
or that “they just simply aren’t the creative person!”. Peo-
ple are afraid of failure and of being judged by others,
hindering them to curiously explore a new creative area.


This project is about enabling people to initially bring some-
thing of their own interest into the process and explore their
own creativity and expression at first hand. It proposes a way

This project is about enabling people to initially bring some-
thing of their own interest into the process and explore their
own creativity and expression at first hand. It proposes a way
to create something unique and personal and develop one’s
own musical expression, without needing any pre-knowledge
in either musical arrangement or instrumental know-how.


Sound is everywhere and for everyone. By choosing and
simply recording a sound directly from the world around you
with a simple and playful recording device, cropping it and
applying one of the pre-set effect-filters in a “Instagram”-like
application for sound. Finally, you share a unique sound
which you have created.
So, Instead of asking “What is good music?”, we should be
asking the more important question; “What is interesting...
to me?!”.


When talking about music and creativity, many people seem
to disclaim their opinion feeling uncomfortable because they
do not see themselves as musically talented, they cannot
read notes nor play the piano or they excuse themselves
with that they “just aren’t the creative type”. However, they
know exactly what music that pushes their buttons.

If you recognize this, you might also have lost one of the
most important ingredients in general creativity...
your creative confidence.


We cannot imagine but variations of what we already know,
however, we can choose from what we have never heard
before. You do not have to know anything about music to
be able to choose from sounds that surround us everyday.
Grab a sound that interests you, put some effects on it (or
don’t!) and share your unique contribution to the world of
sound ! (Less)
