Composing ideas

  1. Find a picture with strong evocative imagery and compose a short piece to reflect the mood. Think carefully about which instruments or sounds you will use. Create a short motif which reinforces the key mood of the picture and develop the motif in different ways.
  2. Find a contrasting picture which evokes a completely different mood. Use the original motif and transform it to suggest the new image.
