""Can Drugs aid the process of composition ?"
You can't just ask individuals, "Do drugs aid the process of composition?"
People might lie.
That's why it needs to be done as a study.
For instance:
We broke arms, legs and fingers of one hundred…"

I agree with you: sleeping well, exercise, and I'd like to add: meditation, open mindedness, and mindfulness are also huge experience enhancers which will improve one's brain. And there are plenty more. But the question asked by the OP was…"

Good sleep and exercise are also huge experience enhancers and will improve your brain instead of messing it up.  Coffee also meets with my approval, albeit being highly addictive.

  • Hi, Adrian. 

    There are some comments at the bottom of the web page as soon an you enter some chords or click Examples link in Chord Analyser System. BTW, quartet also includes jazz and rock parts. I posted the program of quartet in the original Virtal - Walker post.

  • Hey Adrian!  Congrats on the people's choice win!  A perfectly valid setting. :)

  • Yeah its still in the process of being written at the moment, but I look forward to hearing the piece even through Sibelius. Kevin has a good musical vision, much like yourself.
