Creativity for Fiction or Function: #5
Changing Hats on the Fly and Breaking Things Down to Sum Them Up : Fifth of five articles (20 smart reader points)
“Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.” — Anonymous
The composer outlined in this series takes everything he learns on an uncharted journey as a creator, producer and marketer not merely for survival, but to pursue the highest levels of wisdom which gains more interest than simply seeking a monetary exchange for new ideas.
Find the final italicized bold word of five to string together and reveal the only thing the audience knows.
Although he has much in common with the average Joe and even the vast majority in regard to time, energy and money management the comparison ends there.
His creative challenges demand justification for his actions and decisions and having no template compels him to grapple with the unknown, a taxing preoccupation that can become a distraction with no purpose.
As a result the responsibility straddling the composer’s shoulders compounds when there seems to be no viable solution.
Aware the profound influence of the unknown (originally an exciting allurement) is a factor, the composer is famished for resources i.e. marketing, promotion expertise and performing artists for his creative output. The normal avenues are constantly transforming and his strongest suit left is to communicate. There is much more to think about than music alone.
His task is to orchestrate an adventurous composition of intellectual expressions on a field like no other — a thing wise publicists understandably avoid.
Transferring the weight from the source (the mind) over to where the collective comprehension is greatest (an audience) needs a rare kind of creativity and artistry possibly more appropriate for a fictional hero — a perennial problem-buster — than himself.
Despite the daunting observation, the idea of moving forward to a successful outcome (the only thing that matters) drives the relentless composer to continue seeing and hearing his work as plausible.
As stated in the first article he is navigating an unconventional path, but the least of his concerns is wondering if he is flying by the seat of his pants because at this point only a parachute can give him a chance of surviving. He needs to know if his work is fictional or functional.
He determines two relatively basic things:
- His plan or idea is purely fictional regardless of its creative merit if it remains at a prospective level.
- On the other hand if he implements his outlined plan, focusing on results, his creativity is functional.
Theoretically it could not be more simple, but realistically it is an impossible dream because the future — the unknown — the forever intangible is without a guarantee.
Therefore, his music inspired by an unbelievable story of miraculous invention must be real to exist, so when it is in its finest element the fiction dissolves and a new very promising perspective has a chance of being produced.
