To me the invention of MIDI was the opening of a door. For very many
years I struggled with notation on paper, and achieved very little. I
was physically incapable of realising my ideas on a keyboard with
anything more than the simplest of melodies and the most basic
accompaniments. Dots on paper simply didn't convey anything to me - in
spite of 5 years formal piano lessons as a child.

Once I had a sequencer however. I could immediately just *play* the
melody, and part at a time add in counter-melodies, rhythm patterns and
anything else I wanted. The few pieces I've put up for people here to
hear would never have been done without. On my website I even refer to
that with 'The Crystal Ship'. I spent so many years of utter
frustration with the musical 'image' quite clear in my head but
absolutely no way to realise it. I also believe that having that image
there was probably sort of blocking me from developing other ideas.
