University Research Help - Composers Questions

Greetings all,

I’m currently working on a research project for university and have some questions to put forward to composers working in this industry. If anyone wants to contribute to the data, it would be very much appreciated! Questions are as follows:

1.What is your typical creative process when composing a new piece? What are the steps from concept to finished product?

  1. How do you approach composing for a specific mood/atmosphere? Are there any specific techniques that guide your work in this regard?

  2. Could you describe your preferred tools/software for composing? How do these tools benefit your workflow and output?

  3. How do you manage your time and stay productive when working on multiple projects? How do you maintain efficiency?

  4. How to you coordinate with music libraries, directors, or producers to ensure your compositions meet their specific needs and requirements?

  5. How do you maintain authenticity, and ensure that your products stand out?

  6. Can you share any tips for maintaining a diverse and versatile portfolio?

  7. What methods do you use when it comes to research for composing for specific genres/time periods?

  8. How do you adapt to changing trends and evolving musical tastes to ensure your work remains relevant?

Again, really appreciate any contributions to this. Answers long and short are welcome!
