One of the strangest things about being a creative is the unexpected inspiration from the strangest of things.
I've heard and seem musos get inspired by pots, pans, plastic cups... heck, Timbaland got inspire by a baby Cooing for one of Aaliyah's classics "Are You That Somebody". For me, anything that is repetitive gets my creative juices flowing.
While I was in Germany I used the train system all the time. Other than the amazing punctuality, the sounds while in the train would send my brain into overdrive. It was a soundtrack in my head which was layered with murmurs of German, constant percussion from the train tracks and an occasional hype-man announcing the next bus stop.
To cut a long story short, I was going through some footage of my last trip and that ignited some inspiration. The video below is a breakdown of what this particular train ride inspired.
I hope you enjoy!
