Have you ever felt like the only thing you need is to turn the music up real loud and listen? It’s a feeling I get a lot, but why? If you’ve been following the Ashcraft Studios blog, you’ve probably read about how music affects the brain and how different styles of music can help you achieve different results. But leaving science on the back burner for a while, I wanted to talk about why music means so much to me on a personal level.
Creativity has always been an important factor in my life. Whether it involves art or music, I have always had the drive to create. Even my professional choices have reflected my creative preferences. From creating beautiful front-end web designs to assisting in game development, creativity has always been at the core of everything I do.
Personally, I’ve always been on the odd side. I tend to be kind of out there with my ideas and my poor wife has a tough job of trying to keep me on track. I am definitely eccentric at times with my head wrapped up in a million different projects of past, present, and future. Maybe it’s more me being distracted rather than a character trait, but my mind is almost always thinking of the next greatest thing for me to do.
Speaking of the next greatest thing now would be a great time to talk about what’s been going on lately.
As you guys know, I broke my leg in a skateboarding accident involving a rogue pinecone. Since I’ve been limited in my mobility, my world basically exists within the confines of the downstairs area in my home. As a result, studio time has not been a possibility. Thankfully, due to some creative restructuring, filming for The Stanford Lee Show has not been halted and I am happy to announce the release of my next episode on Friday.
Have you had a chance to watch the show yet? If not, you definitely should. It’s a great mix of talk, musicology, stories, and special performances by yours truly. The show is available on YouTube and you should totally check it out now.
