And I Made A Paper Keyboard

The solution to having no musical equipment at all when making soundtracks for films, and having no money to buy equipment, was to draw a piano keyboard on paper and put it on the kitchen table then set a stopwatch to the length of the track and 'play' the music in my head while practicing it with my fingers.
In the studio, it was played on the real keyboard in the studio and worked just fine.
Later, I used to ask for half the fee in advance, and bought the equipment I needed with that.
