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.
