Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

Some of us use only DAWs, others prefer to write the score, with a pencil or with the computer...

Sometimes we compose on an instrument, other times we use only our head...

Knowing that the graphical representation is not the same on a piano-roll or on a score, knowing also that on a computer you hear immediately what you compose, and finally knowing that you play in a certain way on your instrument : Do you think that the way of composing has a big influence on your music?

YES!  I find that composing straight into Sibelius hinders my rhythmic spontaneity and flow.  Honestly, a piano and audio recorder do the best for me, then transcribing it.

Elizabeth, with piano I think that's especially true because many piano pieces vary in rhythm and dynamics so much that composing straight into a computer program can make it harder to think of such alterations.
