Firstly I have to get myself prepared, get idea to immerse myself in the domain, I have to listen to music that inspires me, from it I create a new piece of my own. And when I does that its normally best carried out in a quiet environment. It’s really this stage that i try to absorb as much information as possible because this information will go into my sub-consciousness
