Re: How do you guys compose and play?

I usually sit down, Close my eyes and just play the piano or violin/synth.


Once I get a good melody I correct it based on theory and build around it.

Re: How do you guys compose and play?

Interesting to notice many of you use various ways of improvisation, whether this is by playing live, sampling, rearranging or even randomization. I think I need to incorporate the more DAW-based improvisation possibilites more often in my composing.

This is also why I sometimes feel I made the wrong decision by choosing a more linear-based DAW (Sonar) as opposed to Ableton of which I recently downloaded a demo to fool around in Session View.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to share your ideas!
