    Default How do you remember idea's?

    How often do you find yourself doing something completely unrelated to music when all of the sudden out of no where, an genius idea or solution to a problem just hits you. This is the power of your unconscious at work, which is way more capable then your conscious mind. Unfortunately due to it's nature of hitting you with ideas at random times these ideas often never come to pass.

    My question for you guys is what's your method for keeping this ideas accessible for later follow through? I'm terrible for putting things in my phone when the idea hits (I hate being on my phone in the company of others, which is a large portion of my time).

    Same here... I have binders full of ideas, from random to organized.. I like to keep all my ideas just incase i come across it years later and can actually do something with it. If writing isn't your thing send yourself a text message or leave yourself voice memo's on your phone.. Another option is a cheap handheld voice recorder. Have an idea, hit record and just speak it out, listen back when your in need of some inspiration..

    Usually between getting the idea and pulling out a pen I forget what the idea was.

    i text it to myself, then I know to look through my texts to see what ideas i had in the last few days and try and work them out.

    I've always wondered how producers remember parts of a track they think of in their head? It's not like you can write it down can you?
