Devin Townsend Releases Free Book and Launches The Devin Townsend Creative Academy Online Course
What’s it like inside Devin Townsend’s brain? What is his creative process? How can you modify your own process and workflow to become more productive and creative?
Devin Townsend has launched a new online course called The Devin Townsend Creative Academy to tackle exactly these topics. The course has been made available through The Music Business College and consists of eight lectures (based on a series Devin did last year) that cover topics including songwriting and vocal techniques, production, his approach to guitar, mixing and more. As with everything Devin does, I’m positive these lectures are absolutely fascinating; the dude has a way with words and connecting them to his personal experiences that’s completely transfixing. Devin could literally give a lecture about paint drying and it’d be mesmerizing.
For those not sure if they want to fork over the moolah for the full course load (it costs $496, or can be paid in six installment of $99), Dev has released a free book covering some of the topics in the course, which you can download right here, called How To Develop Creativity & Excel As A Successful Independent Songwriter In A Changing Industry.
