Methodology For creativity

A methodology is:

A set or system of methods, principles, and rules for regulating a given discipline, as in the arts or sciences.

It's a way of thinking about a subject matter, in other words a way to skin a cat. This is my personal method. Developing from thoughts I gather as I try to compose music to my satisfaction. Ideas that can turn into a process which I hope will make me more fluid and ultimately more productive. A lot of these ideas come from my software development experience but most from my struggles with composition.

So lets start by brainstorming some concepts:

  1. Inspiration
  2. Commitment
  3. Vision
  4. Big Picture
  5. Go with the Flow
  6. Development
  7. Stamina
  8. Energy
  9. Space
  10. Gravity
  11. Direction
  12. Focus
  13. Contrast
  14. Speed
  15. Incremental and cyclical
  16. PlaceHolders

Enough for now. Next I will try to define these terms.

Coming Soon.
