I find it both easier and more natural to not plan exactly how the finished piece will sound, but rather play with what's available and just experiment. Experimenting is very fun because it's assumed it hasn't been done and you'll be the first to discover something. For me, this is all about personal discovery, so I'm always finding something new. As far as choice of music goes, I think I'm trying to find things that not only work harmoniously within themselves, but also things that mean something to me. They're also from my childhood, so maybe I'm trying to get some message out of my mind through music. Now that I think about it, there are definitely secrets in my room. But then again, who doesn't have those? I think it's best to just let the melody flow and enjoy the ride while it lasts. Let the beat find its way through, and the rest will follow along; naturally.
