I was surprisingly listening to Linkin Park’s Living Things album when the initial idea for this came to mind. Not the kind of music you’d expect the inspiration to be born from but rock music always does it for me. It was just a slew of geometric shapes bunched up together that I had drawn in a small notebook at work.
Eventually, very little of that initial drawing was used. Because I was having a slight battle with creative block, I decided to wing it and work on a very unstructured approach - include whatever I felt like including and toss it away if it really doesn’t work. I spent roughly three hours on this with a sigh of relief that I eventually overcame that sudden creative block.
