Neil Finn talks about songwriting and creativity

March 8, 2013 at 9:15 pm by Demosthenes  - 

neil finn Ringer Jennie sends us news about a lecture that singer-songwriter Neil Finn gave at Yale University last September about songwriting and creativity and having a willingness to take what he calls “unknown paths”. If you’ve ever wondered about how the creative process works for artists, or if you’re an artist yourself wondering about what others do to get themselves into that creative space, this is a fantastically insightful talk.

Later in the talk, Finn also speaks specifically goes into the process of writing “Song of the Lonely Mountain” (it’s in response to a question from the audience, at about 1:08 into the video) Finn even mentions he was trying to “work in some Dwarven language…but wasn’t very successful…”
