A methodology is:
A set or system of methods, principles, and rules for regulating a given discipline, as in the arts or sciences.
It’s a way of thinking about a subject matter, in other words a way to skin a cat. This is my personal method. Developing from thoughts I gather as I try to compose music to my satisfaction. Ideas that can turn into a process which I hope will make me more fluid and ultimately more productive. A lot of these ideas come from my software development experience but most from my struggles with composition.
So lets start by brainstorming some concepts:
- Big Picture
- Go with the Flow
- Incremental and cyclical
Enough for now. Next I will try to define these terms.
