As you may know, I am a pretty creative guy. If I came up with something new or surprising people often ask me: how do you come up with that stuff? Well, frankly I get a lot of my thoughts by the inspiration of others. And this can be anything: from nature to architecture, from music to comedy. There are so many great things to see and experience.
So here is another gem I found today that may spark your creativity. It’s a video of 2CELLOS, two guys getting sound out of a cello that nobody ever got. In this video they do a cover AC/DC’s Thunderstruck. The sound of the cellos cover it all: the deep basses, the screaming guitars and even Brian Johnson’s piercing voice.
And while I will never be capable of performing things like this, it really ups my game in creativity. It tells me nothing is impossible. Look outside that box!
But it also raises the bar. Sampling from the great leaves you easily dissatisfied if your own work isn’t up to the standards you expect from yourself. For me: I just push harder, and keep adjusting till it’s good. Watching videos like these at night helps me recharge and up my game the next day.
