Out of Nowhere
Being a composer of music I often wonder:
Where does the music come from?
Where is it before someone compose it and write it down and play it?
Is it already made, just waiting for someone to pick it like an apple from a tree?
J. S. Bach ended all his compositions writing:
”From the hand of God.”
He knew where his music came from!
I don’t know.. When I make my music, I get the inspiration in many different ways.
I want to share a special story with you.
My very first published CD is called Out of Nowhere.
It’s named after the ”composition” Out of Nowhere.
The quotation marks are because the word composition is not right here!
I want to share with you, how Out of Nowhere was created.
At that time, I was working with a guy, who made seminars for business people about personal growth. I was playing music at the events and telling about the effect of music, and how to use music to beat stress.
At one event, we were waiting for people to arrive.
Nobody came! Not one single person!!
We had never tried that before, and was laughing and making jokes about it. I sat down with my guitar and started to play (just to ”kill” time).
Suddenly it was there! I just played it. From start to the very end.
I played it again and again to be sure to remember it.
A totally finished composition! I was speechless.
I knew instantly I had to call it Out of Nowhere.
Because “Out of Nowhere” was were it came from!
When I came home, I did some very small adjustments to it,
and if you go to Products you can hear a sample of that music,
which that very special day came to me.
- Literally Out of Nowhere.
