Hey, look, a new thing! New for 2012, a site called “FRED” is running an idea called Song Fu – basically, an idea per month to get the creative juices flowing. I’ve always really liked the idea, so I had to try it this time around (more info here: http://www.asitecalledfred.com/songfu2012/).
The first prompt: Write a song about bioluminescence. “What in the…?!” Well, after doing some research – i.e.: looking up the word in a dictionary – The ideas started forming and I had a title and some chord changes pretty quickly. From there, the rest of the song wrote itself… eventually.
