Once upon a time, the theme for Nocturne was that of “Motive”. But what IS “Motive”? Well, after thinking at it a few different ways, I wondered if Motive could be represented by “that tiny little force in your head that roars to life when you feel the oncoming rush of an idea”.

The most fun part of that thought is that, well, that force can be different to different people, and can flourish in unique ways! Sometimes it’s loud, sometimes it’s sneaky. Sometimes it’s lightning fast, sometimes it’s gradual. Whatever it looks like, thank goodness it exists—Nocturne, for example, would be pretty boring indeed without fresh ideas giving it life.
