Then I thought a bit longer. Came up with that again. Ok I admit I looped on that for a while.
On my quest to come up with a less dick-ish answer I came up with...
But sometimes when I'm listening to a track I've been working on, when its in the closing stages, close to being upload-ready I putter around the internet looking for images that might match potential titles, based on word associations.
Definitely don't look at art sites for inspiration. If art inspires the music I don't need to look any further. If I'm rocketing towards the closing stages of a track I'm looking for something that matches my ideas.
Remember art is only porn when the creators don't put halos on the owners of the erection.
Sounds silly but I consider my wallpaperx slideshow and the color scheme in Ableton to all be part of setting the best mindset. I use interfacelift.com which is mostly landscape and cityscape hd wallpapers, then I just find ones that put me in a place that feels like the music I want to make. Moody tech house - rainy city shot for example.
I also like to just listen to my favorite music for a bit beforehand, enjoy some herbal remedies, helps to calibrate my ears and be inspired
Not art per se, but I used to collaborate in a project called Trace Element, more ambient style IDM, in my collaborators studio (a real deal recording studio - iso booths, proper acoustic treatment in the mix room etc) he had a projector and a screen above the window to the vocal booth. We would often put Baraka or Samsara on that screen on mute while working up the concepts that eventually turned into the tunes.
It just helps me zone out life before I zone in to music.
You, or anyone else, are free to do anything with the music that I make. I consider all of my productions to be public domain. If someone asks, I will give them the source files and any related sample files if they are needed. Music is a dialogue, not a speech. Any listener must be free to become the speaker at any time for the life of the dialogue to be retained. Let us, then, discuss in tone.
