I’m generally very messy in my creative environment … wires strewn across floors, instruments on chairs, etc. Nothing like the studios you see on Youtube. The creative process is a messy one, “No mud, no lotus”. There can be earlier versions of music I’m working on, or versions I just wipe out and start anew, knowing that creating the earlier material was essential to where the musical road will lead. That happened several times on Chronos.
