How To Beat Writer’s Block – Tip #8

Take a look a the artwork masterpieces of Jackson Pollock. Simple, yet visionary and revolutionary. And most of what he did was drip, splatter, and throw paint randomly on a canvas.

With a piece of sheet music, and paint brush, and some paint – do something similar to the art of Jackson Pollock. Be random with how you splatter the paint across the sheet music. Let it drip random drops.

After it dries, interpret you new score. What lines of contour do you see? What noteheads on the staves are there? Is there a rhythm and flow to it?

Musical inspiration can come from anywhere, including art.
