On Modern Composition
I think today people worry to much about what people want to hear and not enough about what their music, music not just lyrics, are saying. It’s a damn shame really. I try to find interesting new compositions and one of the biggest concerns I see is I hope you’ll like it. Not I like this because… There’s a big difference there and the emotionality of music needs to be explored to greater deal. Modern technologies have opened up this entire new mind blowingly large repertoire of sounds to people. Yet we treat music as a prat of the media of a message and not the medium for that most difficult message. Emotion.
