I know this might be a really shit thread, but I could use a bit of motivation to start up again.
About 5 years ago my hard-drive crashed and I lost everything because I didn’t know the value of backing up. Lost all my projects, sample and breakbeat library, custom presets, ideas, obscure media, plugins - everything I built music around. I could never come back from it.
I am so ready to begin again and have been binging the break ore and idm and noise and I industrial that got me into music in the first place,leading me back here. but now I have a better understanding of music theory now, through learning guitar in the time between the crash, but I have forgotten how do it. I’ve forgotten all about sound design and programming tricks.
I sit there with my trusty old DAW and just tinker around then get stuck because I’m working with nothing I can call my own.
I might take this opprtunity to learn a different DAW (have been using fruity loops) and want to take a sounds design course now that I have the attention span to actually learn, and not just fuck about throwing shit at a wall, like I did when I was younger.
I have Ideas in my head still, new and better ones after I expanded my tastes beyond IDM and Breakcore and Noise etc. but it’s really hard to transcribe them right now.
What do I do? How do I learn how to make the music in my head once more?
Any advice or wisdom would be appreciated!
