Visuals & Words

My brain tends to think first in sound (shapes and movements of sound) before visuals and words, though I know it is all related. I think focusing on non-auditory elements when writing a piece can really contextualize a song as it is being written. Usually people talk about the opposite phenomenon, of a piece of music powerfully altering a scene in a movie...but I like the idea of writing a song for a movie scene that doesn't exist yet.
