In order to fulfill your creative aim it takes a blended approach.
It must vary between technical and intuitive, back and forth.
Setting out to hit an emotional target is a good start, though having the correct technical backing allows you to better express it. The tools at a point will no longer get in the way of the translation. After that the emotional impact can be targeted yet again. In music it can become tangible. Feeling the texture of the sounds, and seeing the atmosphere develop in the process.
Let your creation become multi-sensory.
Honest with no apology, be yourself entirely, show us your Realm.
