Writing and music…
Music was very influential and easily supplemented the mood as I made the attempts to relate both the mood of the characters and paint the scene. When I initially began this project in ’98, my main soundtrack was Joi Gilliam’s (http://joilicious-online.org/home.php ) 1994 The Pendulum Vibe and the sampler of the unreleased classic Amoeba Cleansing Syndrome (damn Rowdy and Freeworld records). But as I continued to write, there were times that simply hearing a song at a specific time, or for the first time spurred me to write. While on a 1999 road trip somewhere between Fargo, ND and Spokane, WA, a friend played the song “Jóga” by Björk in his car cassette player (yes, remember those) and I, for the first time, heard this song and grabbed any piece of paper around me in the car to start writing anything to add to my manuscript. It was the powerful effect that hearing the song for the first time inspired me to write. Much to the chagrin of the driver, I repeated the song several times until I was told that they did not want to dislike the song and that we had to move on. Similarly, upon making the return trip, we were listening to local L.A. radio as we took I-10 to return to Atlanta just before I ended up in some place called Blythe (where we had to order some Domino’s Pizza, and eat it on a bench in front of the store in an empty shopping center, when Mary J. Blige’s “Sincerity” feat DMX and Nas was played. Whoa… I was taken by this song, and the message was of the concept of love, at the very heart, a very central theme in my manuscript.
