“Radiohead has evolved into a band of arrangers. They start with an idea — usually some chords, a melody and some kind of a speed — and figure out how to orchestrate it. Recording a song by playing it together in a room has become just one of several options they can pursue while recording: a setting on the machine that is Radiohead.”

From this fantastic New York Times piece on Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s second career as a composer.

I like this view of the creativity process: taking bits and pieces of not-fully-formed ideas and arranging them into something bigger. Sort of related to the idea of creativity is just connecting things.
