This blog is about the emergence of a composition from the origins of an idea to the stage. In the posts here I detail the artistic and technical considerations of musical compositions as I write them, in a way that I hope is accessible and friendly.
The idea for this blog emerged directly from the sage advice of the singularly talented comic book author Chris Spalton, a legend among humans and supremely excellent friend, who opened my eyes to, among many things, the great value that exposing the working process as well as the work can bring, and showed me how to do so. Another essential guiding force has been Hugh Glaser, who has very kindly given me inordinate amounts of his time, sweat and expert knowledge to help me get this set up and running just as I want it. Thank you!
