Every project sharpens your tools and thus deserves the full attention and talent of the composer. There should never be such a thing as firing on only a few cylinders just because the project is small, low budget, comes from filmmakers who aren’t famous and can’t afford big name actors. There is always something to learn and the attitude should never be: OMG today I HAVE TO DO THIS. Instead it should be: today I have the privilege to create music. It’s my dream come true. Sometimes it’s harder, but there’s always an element of joy of creating and refining the knowledge and the techniques required. There is a mysterious element to this process and you don’t really know where the ideas flow from.
In the past, when producing recording artists, we have seen this endless source of inspiration dry up as soon as material interests start dominating and the love for the art takes a back seat. Or if the kindness and respect for each other disappear. Even Jkyll’s and Heil’s bickering is based on mutual respect. There’s no other explanation: art comes from love. Even if it comes from anger it comes from love of a fellow human who is oppressed or disrespected.
