Story // Fascinating creativity experiment

In an attempt to demystify creative process, NPR Radio launched an exciting project. They invited several musicians that never played with each other before, locked them in the studio for 2 days and encouraged to write a song. Why? Because deadlines are crucial for creativity.

Here I’ve picked a few best episodes of NPR Project Song — a project aimed to deconstruct and demystify creative process of world renowned musicians and inspire young artists to follow their creative bliss.

#1 Collaboration between Moby x Kelli Scarr

 

#2 Collaboration between Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie) x J. Robbins

 

#3 Nellie McKay

Every now and then we all need a slight push to make some progress on our artistic endeavors. I believe learning from the top artists is one of the best ways to unblock your creativity and embrace those projects you’ve been contemplating.

Happy songwriting!
