As a little experiment, I've been working on a side project where the percussion is made entirely made of samples from around the house. Rustling leaves, vases, guitar strings - that kind of thing. The experimental/ first part of making a song is probably my favourite part. I love being able to haphazardly throw things together until something takes form. At the moment however, it's all about the finishing / mixing stage. I enjoy mixing as well because I like making things P E R F E C T but it brings out an obsessive side of me which is eye-twitchingly exhausting. It's probably a good idea to let off some steam by mixing up the two stages, but I find it hard to switch between the two ways of thinking sometimes. .
Producers / musicians, What's your favourite stage of song-making? And how do you get through the challenging stages?
