Tonight’s practicing included music by Eugene Bozza: “Improvisation et Caprice”, Bob Reynolds: “Feedback”, Nine Inch Nails: “All Time Low” and “Copy of a” and BLOW Trio: “Black Male.” I like to take all of my influences and mix them up in a blender. I’ll never sound like any one of my influences but I will sound like me influenced by my influences. Austin Kleon calls it “Writing the book you want to read.” In Austin’s book Steal Like an Artist, he offers this advice:
“…Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read…”
