I'll just start laying out the melody exactly where I want it to fall. And then I'll go back and fill it out. Whereas, in other pieces I'm really just going a couple bars at a time.
It sounds really stupid, I hate making cosmic comments like this but, I just let it do what it wants to do.
In some types of music I'm working out all the chords one bar at a time - the whole structure, because it's about that. And there are other pieces which are really about - okay, the melody is going to start here and play through to here.
I don't see myself necessarily having a burning desire to write a symphony.
I like creating these rhythmic patterns. These interlocking rhythmic things are really fun.
