This is the first post of many that I will be making to this blog. I intend for it to be a reflection on the way I compose and a place to discuss both my music and the music that I am listening to. It will give people a window into my compositional and analytical thought processes, and…who knows…maybe inspire someone (hopefully at least me!) Please post any comments or thoughts…I’ll be unpacking my current as well as some previous works, and feedback is always appreciated. Plus, then I’ll know that I’m not writing these words into the void.
