“You will write if you will write without thinking of the result in terms of a result, but think of the writing in terms of discovery, which is to say that creation must take place between the pen and the paper, not before in a thought or afterwards in a recasting…
It will come if it is there and if you will let it come.”
I wish how when and where the writer first uttered these words. For the true ethical thoughtful and skeptical nonfiction writer, like myself, it can a moral chore to track down such quote.
In the digital age we are at liberty to ’chance it”. And that’s the unsettling aspect of it. Leads often start sliding into clangers and others, and yet, possibly, a move of genius! Anyhow, is that true even then?
DISCOVER BRILLIANT MOVIE MUSIC COMPOSER
“The only thing you have as a film composer, in a funny way, is the story. And that’s the rule: stick to the story like glue.”
Words from that example: is internationally admired in the modern movie industry musician. Hans Florian Zimmer who was born in Frankfurt, Germany and has been working mainly in USA. The energetic and strong-headed ’pro’ Herr Zimmer is composer, video game composer and music producer.
Hans has composed music for over 150 films that include scores for ‘Gladiator’, ‘The Lion King’, ‘The Last Samurai’ and ‘Interstellar’.
This creator in the accelerating Digital Age works a forte that seems to be integrating electronic musical sounds with traditional orchestral arrangements. He’s already received many awards like four Grammy Awards, three Classical BRIT Awards, two Golden Globes and an Academy Award.
Exciting example: ‘Interstellar‘
IN conversations with director Christopher Nolan: “one of the metaphors that we came up with for how we were going to celebrate science, ” said Zimmer. “ (it) was Chris’s idea of taking an in depth look at pipe organs. By 17th century, pipe organs were the most complicated machines that human beings had ever built and they actually remained most human engineered machines up until the telephone exchange.” Hans Zimmer found they could consolidate the ideas go gravity, metaphysics and time into music.” He said that in the end of the process, they had written a large sweeping love scene about science.
Nonfiction is not so different from the Novel!
The book that a Nonfiction writer and producer here, in my forthcoming practical collection of articles from earlier and up-to-date stories, is really closely serving general storytelling, while borrowing his material from many reporters, journalists, performers and dreamers, old and young, something closely in tune with a brilliant musician in Hans Zimmer.
