Trackmaking strategies

Dear Danny,

Before the Q&A session ends I've got some final questions.

I often struggle with finishing something and I was wondering how you are going about it.
I.e. when you program a bassline, do you "think" it all the way through and then move on to the next thing (lead etc.)? What I mean is especially on synths which have no patch memory you have to stick to a particular sound until the "idea" is finished and once you patch something different you cannot really go back.
Menaing when you try to finish an idea later or rather go back to it one most certainly isn't able to get the same results.
How do you go about structuring / thinking through a track (i.e. poverties paradise, sark island e.p., teac life style tracks etc.)?

Do you ever go back to finish something?
For myself it never works out going back to something later and trying to finish it. I rather just jam everything live, mute and unmute tracks and just record the master channel. But it's not always satisfying, especially for more complex structures and I'd like to improve on that.
Do you have lots of "unfinshed" sketches lying around?

Again thank you very much for your time and insight into your ideas.
I hope someday the freejazz idea will be reality...I'd certainly attend
It was great you did this!
