Thank you. And yes, I don't use notation at all during the writing process. Why? I don't know. Am schooled classically, and know music theory and the likes. Also play different instruments. But for some reason I never use notation. I find it easier, and faster because you can immediately hear a result. Only problem is, I mix up composition and orchestration a whole lot, which usually leads to brain chaos.

I'm a realist, not seeing that happen really. But, I do have the need to stay creative, hope I don't lose that.
