>>52084302 I have no experience from making music myself. But I'd guess they come parallel to each other. For example you write a piece for the guitar and then you do some drumming that fits it, or vice versa if you prefer.
There probably isn't a schedule to follow, just mess around.
>>52084302 depends on what you want to do like, what instruments do you use? really you shouldn't force anything just write down some parts you like, like chord progressions, just stuff to do, later you can try to compile it. If you want to just write stuff that's whatever you could just start with drums and then whatever, but there's really no rule.
Knowing things like scales can make the process easier, but really what helps most people is just listening to music that inspires them and then try to do something similar but with their own creativity and other sounds.
>>52084302 any of them, really. Different artists have different processes, for some music some methods are easier than others (house and techno generally are easier to make if you start with the drums).
Just play with what sounds inspire you most, then try to accompany those sounds with other sounds you like.
>>52084441 >are you making vaporwave? >That's what everyone on mu makes for some reason. That's because it sounds cool but it's easy as fuck to make and requires no real skill to compose. It's just finding obscure 80's music, looping bars of it, pitch shifting it and adding effects (the musical equivalent to taking a pretty photo and adding a ton of raster effects in photoshop).
Back in my day, we called it a shitty attempt at sampling a song for a Chillwave track.
Not to say that I don't like Chuck Person's Eccojam or even some other Vaporwave like Miami Vice, but most of the shit people make here is just soulless wank.

>>52084071 What do you want to say? Listening to music is a deductive interpretative process, whist creating it is an inductive intuitive process. It's not like laying train tracks down one after another, you're supposed to use your synesthesia, map the various sounds to various other stimuli that you are fond of, and combine these things in a way that conveys who you are, soul and all.
Anon you are great and what you make it important. You clearly know what you're doing and someone out there will like it. Look at how many people have seen it on Youtube and though it was sweet. You've done good.
>>52085318 >Contrary to what most others in the thread preach, I always work my melody around my lyrics. I'll spend months writing them, then have a rough enough idea of how it should sound to write the rest.
Good fucking advice.
You get better at writing lyrics by doing this, too.
I grab my guitar, sit at my computer, open up a word document and just try to make something happen.
I know a lot of people might advise against that, and would prefer to be more technically inclined and thorough but it's pretty much the only way I can write music. If I can't put together the basis of a song in one sitting then I generally can't come back to it and make it work. That's probably a bad habit, but it's just hard to come back to whatever idea I had already put in my head.
Take a few lines that sound really natural, then work a basic melody for those lyrics. Then write some more lyrics of that melody. Then add some other parts with a new melody that comes naturally. It's a style that John Lennon and Mac DeMarco clearly use this style in their music.
If I get bored I'll pretend to sing a pop song in my own made up version of japanese. A melody comes naturally from there and I fit the lyrics.
I myself like to try different approaches with each song. on my group`s demo >https://mockfountain.bandcamp.com/ All of the songs are frankenstein`d with riffs I`ve came up with by noodling around,recorded jam sessions,personal flavor/interpretation,ever-developing and cool ideas the other members bring in. It really feels like a project of sorts,aimed at pleasing ourselves and having fuun.
>>52084843 I make noise music: I find new sound inputs >drum heads >coat hangers >vocal chords >feedback (oh god that glorious god given audio phenomenon) >glass bottles >field recordings
Then I try to run those inputs through an effects pedal and putz around until I find cool tones or make new rhythms. I then record as I jam in my shed, often dancing/prurient esque thrash about to ward off the cold.
After jamming image song naturally comes to a close. I take the recording I put it in audacity and preform minimalistic editing. (Cut off the beginning and end parts of the file that consist of me messing w my phone to initiate/end the recording) then I am done.
