At first I wanted to write about defeating the most destructive and pervasive creative block: the inner saboteur. When I realized that the inner saboteur––despite how it can defeat and dominate us so easily if we are not vigilant––is just a disembodied voice, I decided I needed to start by discussing how words and language affect us as artists.
The best collaborations in art or music are those in which methods, communication, styles, aesthetics and even visions are starkly, dramatically different. Cam and I have collaborated together many times in our art and music projects, synthesizing our seemingly mismatched artistic concepts into one. At the end of our projects everything simply falls perfectly into place. In collaboration we create songs, films, plays and visual artwork that we could not have ever invented on our own.
To lead a dream through into reality is to fill a theater for your most glorious acts to come.
