I have to admitI love watching our Musical Director, Jeff Cubeta when he writes notes for himself in his score. He rips pieces of sticky pads into tiny shapes and sticks them through out the music. Ibought him some smaller note pads butI don't think he ever used them. I realize thatthe rippingis part of his creative process.
We all have our routines we use to get our creativity flowing. I pace before auditions, it grounds me and I attempt to write in my journal every morning, it clears my head for the day ahead. ripping sticky pads is Jeff's way.
