Tems Shares Inspiration Behind New Documentary Finding Peace In The Noise
Tems Shares Inspiration Behind New Documentary Finding Peace In The Noise: Nigerian contemporary and Alternative singer, Temitope Openiye, also known as Tems has released a documentary that gives us a peek into her creative process.
In just about two years of breaking out, Tems has proven herself to be a truly special and talented artiste. In addition to show-stopping features on Odunsi’s “Decided”, Khalid’s “Know Your Worth” and DRB’s “Trouble”, Tems’ only solo release this year has been the soothing song which she titled “These Days”.
While the spaced-out tempo of her musical releases is now characteristic for the singer, we’ve now come to learn that it’s in fact a by-product of her meticulous approach to making music exactly how she wants.
Offering us a peek into her creative process, Tems has just shared “Finding Peace in the Noise”, a new mini-documentary in partnership with YouTube Music.
In less than three minutes, Tems expatiates on the importance of being in the moment while creating music, noting that tuning out the draining news cycle helps in maintaining focus and ensuring the energy that goes into the music is pure and untainted.
“When I’m in the studio or when I’m in a creative zone, my mind has be 100% there, taking things moment for moment, hour for hour. Otherwise, I get stuck” she says in the voiceover that accompanies visuals of her working in the studio.
“Finding Peace in the Noise” emphasizes the attention and care Tems puts into her music, briefly but profoundly letting us into her frustrations while creating, as well as her constant determination to make sure she’s putting her best foot forward each time a new song or feature goes live.
The mini-documentary is a reminder that, even though there’s a lot of anticipation for her debut project, Tems won’t be rushed, but we can be rest assured that whatever she comes up with is representative of her and is of the quality possible.
