A brief introduction to my scientific background from the creativity point of view:
Intuitive thinking is very important and I always emphasize this topic when possible. When Avril Lavigne released album Goodbye Lullaby the same semester during advanced insurance mathematics and probability calculus, simulations and stochastic processes classes I just blocked my mind around new Avril Lavigne album and just traveled to Frankfurt asap. I have seen marvelous presentation of Korg Kronos for the first time and however used Roland RS-70 and recorded compositions for a few years and not needed to change instrument. This was the first thrill in my life about synthesizer. And till the end of semester I also performed very well in abstract disciplines however it was hard to combine. Music, need for spontaneity and discipline for very abstract considerations was just like a BOMB!
Take a look a bit into what Avril Lavigne said about her creative process:
