Constraints

Posted by Kirsten Gibbs on March 27, 2019
  • No composer would present his orchestra with a blank scoresheet and expect them to play – not even John Cage.*

    Creativity requires constraints. The blank sheet of paper numbs imagination.

    • “Thinking outside the box”
    • “Pushing the envelope”
    • “Pushing boundaries”
    • “Bending/stretching/breaking/re-writing the rules”

    If you want the creativity, you have to create constraints people can work from.

    Discipline makes daring possible.

    *Cage’s box was for the audience, not the orchestra.
