1 I would develop a musical notation for the purpose of both remembering and recreating sound with the use of added expression simultaneously along with the rhythmical and varied pitch attributes that exist in today's musical notation but configure them in a way that is easier and faster to learn and perform.2
2 When hearing a song I really like I invision colorful vapors emanating from the instrument that produce its sound. I also escape and see landscapes for instance a pond or lake valleys or familiar places like the street I live in also if I heard that same song in the past it automatically plays with my memory and the feeling I had when I first heard it. It truly brings forth the past in my mind.
