Published by Seed Strategy, the second issue of The Fire Theft Project: Conversations On Creativity features an in-depth discussion on all things creative with Wayne Coyne, the Flaming Lips’ highly prolific front man.
The new digital magazine is now available for iPad and iPad Mini on Apple Newsstand, and as a PDF for other devices on the magazine’s website.
In this wide-open discussion, the wildly divergent thinker shares his insights on the creative process and the importance of fearless determination. “Creativity really starts with personality. Actually, it’s stubbornness,” Coyne says. “If you’re stubborn long enough, you’re considered ‘determined.’ And when you’re determined long enough, you’re considered ‘bad-assed.’”
- Smashing Conventions to Innovate: How Coyne’s dismissal of any standard mode of operation has stretched his band’s creative abilities and led to some of their most breakthrough work.
- The Importance of Constant Creation: “If you’re not doing it all the time, you won’t notice when something hits, or if you do, you won’t know what to do with it.”
- Space Bubble! The Interactive Game: Coyne has retired the inflatable ball he’s used to roll across audiences, but this simple yet challenging game allows fans to take a spin with him anytime.
