the origins of artistic creation

Rick Rubin had more interesting things to say...
"I have a theory: what seems in balance to us, wherther aurally or visually, comes from a distant , primal memory of something in nature. When something rings true, its because it harkens back to some truth in the universe. You just know it when it happens. With artists, you can see it happen. A band will be playing and something starts happenng and everyone starts looking at each other in a certain way. Its by no means an exact science. its just a feeling that is."
(Rick Rubin, "What Ive Learned", Jan 2007 Esquire)
