Techniques for memorizing a musical idea and "saving it to paper"?
Sometimes I have a very nice musical idea, with orchestration too, and I clearly hear it in my mind as if I was listening to a CD. But I cannot retain it. The only way is to play it over and over in my mind, but then I cannot even walk or drive. Cold you suggest some technique for "saving to hard disk"? (Somehow so that as I have time I can later write it down.) I have a degree in classical piano, I also studied classical composition for some years, so I have a musical background.
