Defining My Creative Problems
- Creating more variation
- Writing stronger melodies
Asking myself questions:
What easy way out did I take on the last piece I wrote?
What compositional/creative task have I really struggled following through on?
What types of textures, melodies, or instruments did I use most often?
Let it write itself:
Throw in a few notes/motifs in there, then chop it up, play around with it, until you get something that is compelling. Let is self originate. You can’t mentally conceive of it. This is, I believe, what happened with Lux especially.
