How i collect yourself a piece of music - music


A add up to of ancestors have asked about my own attitude for creating a absolute piece of music at the piano. At the risk of oversimplification, the steps are as follows:

1. I sit down at the piano devoid of any brain wave of creating a bit and tune in to my feelings.

2. I start to play the first thing that comes to mind. In other words, my fingers come already my brain. I let it all hang out and see where the music wants to go. If amazing resonates or has energy I stay with it until the energy dissipates. If the music does not seem to want to go someplace I get up and leave.

3. Now, (assuming that I am on to something) I draw bar lines - an adequate amount of for an 8-measure phrase. I then write down the chord changes on top - optimistically for the complete 8 bars. If the total 8-bars don't come, I try for four - but I commonly accomplish something in big up this 8-bar space. I'll then pencil in the melody, but only the first 2-bars.

This way, I let the rest of the song come of its own accord. The first 2-bars is adequate to allow me to be creative the rest until it gels into its final form

4. After the first 8-bar divide up is accomplished (or incomplete, it doesn't matter) I'll write down a different 8 or 4-bar couch and snoop for the next divide up of music - if there is a next section. If amazing comes I abide by the same formula as above.

What I commonly try for in this divide up is contrast. A bit different. In this regard, I do by and large start out with a defined idea of what the final form of the music will be. It will be A-B-A form 90% of the time. Aware this allows me to use the techniques of makeup (repetition and contrast) better.

Although this seems to contradict the idea of let the music tell you where it wants to go (improvisation) it is beneficial in arrangement to give shape to the music. I defend this in more allocate in my online class.

5. Now, I have the undeveloped parts of the complete piece. If I only have the A bit and the B divide up does not want to come, I leave it and come back to it. At times it never comes and that's all right too. I can then bloc atypical sections to another pieces of music and all works out. I give it a title (nature titles for me since that is my inspiration).

6. The piece is complete only after I play it a digit of times and it has a attempt to gel. I can't think of a advance word for this process. After you play what you have on paper down a amount of times, the music settles into what it will at length become. You just know when the piece is finished. It is an intuitive thing. Every now and then I'll go over sections a add up to of times since the inspiration is fresh and as it feels right. Other pieces are very short since more repetition of a divide up just does not work.
