Alexia's method of composing is very strongly imagining the pitches she wishes to be played or sung, both melodically and harmonically away from any instrument. As a synaesthetic musician, she also thinks about the colours she wishes to hear in the music and, much like a visual artist, how these are blended to convey the meaning of the piece. She writes the pitches down in Braille music notation and then dictates them to an amanuensis, who transcribes them onto a notation software.
