"All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff."
That's the unabridged quote. That said, it's really hard to come up with original ideas when we're constantly bombarded with them. I'm talking about photography, music, art, comedy, movies, porn, whatever. We see so much of the stuff, and every time we sit down in our proverbial studios 90% of the time we're just recreating what we heard over the previous month. It's hard to be original.
Which is why I want to build a cabin in the rocky mountains with no internet, pack my computer and synths, and make house music that sounds like nothing anyone's ever heard.
Yeah, I'm already pigeonholing myself.
