This week on The Modern Recordist, I do another solo edition of The 15 Minute Mixdown segment.
I talk about a songwriting technique that lends to a post-creation collaboration with fans. This technique is key in creating compelling music that will keep fans engaged, creating real meaning and impact with them.
Many writers and filmmakers employ a technique of leaving “open loops” in order to craft a compelling story. In the songwriting and record-making world, leaving something “intentionally incomplete” seems to be a more applicable way to think about it.
It’s also something folks like award-winning photographer, Chase Jarvis, talk about, as well as filmmakers like JJ Abrams.
