  2. Do you ever record them and store them on your computer to be able to easily access whenever you are in the mood of composing and are in need of a theme? That's what I do.
  3. I wonder why each composer feels compelled to compose, and would like to hear each of your reasons for composing. For me it might be an inner need springing from my subconscious, a need to probably order and harmonize experience. And composition for me has never been an intentional act or deliberate act. I have early on felt compelled to respond in my own music to the music I heard. But presently, it is more an inner inspiration that leads me to compose. And this inspiration is mostly something whose existence is not in my hands. It might happen that I am no longer inspired after today. But still, my present period of compositional activity (in the past 6 months) coincided with getting a new software for composition (Sibelius 6) whereupon I experienced an increase in compositional activity and output, composing 37 short pieces in that 6-month period. So, from this experience of mine I can also infer that composition can be a response to external stimulation (in my case a new software program). For others (and for me also) it might be other types of stimulation that lead to compositional activity. What might these other types of stimulation be? I think new experiences, like meeting new people, doing new things could be examples of such stimulation. For example, after attending a religious conference, I wrote a short song as a march for the group. Waiting to hear your reasons for composing.
  4. For me, inspiration is almost everything. Without it I wouldn't compose. And the pieces that I write as a product of inspiration bear that mark and are far better than the pieces that are the product of trivial inspiration or no inspiration at all.
  5. I'm finding it hard to word this topic in paragraph form, so here are my questions in list form. -I hear some of composer X's work somewhere and really like it. -I want to draw from that style for my own compositions. -In particular I want to apply these styles in a cinematic way. (In the near future, I may get to score some student films.) -What is the best way to go about this? -Should I buy some scores and analyze them? -Are there particular analysis techniques that I should use for cinematic applications? -Should I write "practice compositions" where I attempt to duplicate the styles I want? -Am I over-thinking this? Thanks in advance for your answers.
