Composing songs from the subconscious mind, anyone?
Have you ever experienced waking up to music playing on your head, one that you haven’t heard before? This is what I have oftentimes experienced, and these unique songs are not the same. I would wake up to such strange melodies and lyrics, and as intense as they appear in my dreams and upon waking up, they immediately vanish just like a poof, without even giving me time to capture them in my conscious mind. Sigh.
If only I’m a composer or one who have studied music and know how to translate these subconscious melodies into notes and weave them into real and tangible songs! Then I would surely build up the song further, and enhance it creatively with music production software such as Ableton. For musicians and composers, these are some of the many creative and innovative tools in producing songs to bring out musical ideas better.
I often wonder if those brilliant musicians and composers also experienced waking up to new music in their minds? How easy it is for them then as they can easily transform and write these melodies into notes. I am not a composer, though I often secretly wish I can magically compose even a single song in my lifetime.
