My main criteria other than those obvious consideration is: I have to put it in a musical setting that makes sense for me and my voice. It has to feel right in an intuitive way. It’s usually guided by emotion or if there’s something in there that I feel is interesting musically that I can hook onto. That’s more of an intuitive process than it is intellectual.
Any and all of this could apply to how I make paintings.
