I had been having supervisions with Julian Philips and Richard Baker. Some of the most problematic issue they always said is that my way of composing is too intuitive. For example, I have an idea, I write it down, when the idea is over and comes another I write it down. At the end, I have four or five ideas, all different, and I did not explore them as I should.
The problem is, the ideas are good and on each one I have good material to explore, but I am not thinking about the material, I am not expending the time that all material or idea need. In a way, it is like I am cooking a dish without knowing exactly what flavour an ingredient will add to my final result.
For this enormous issue, they suggested to sketch more, expend more time playing and tasting my material, and explore and discover mor about it.
In a way, it is a big change but I am going to try - nothing to lose. I bought a A3 sketch notebook and post-its. I am looking forward for the results.
