Four of five now done.
Admittedly, I was hoping (knew that it was at the least a sound possibility) to finish the Sanctus today; but I was mindful also of the several false starts on the piece. Nevertheless, I think I've made my way through to the end, and Heinrich has already written back to say he likes it all right ...

On Fairy Story
Do I believe in fairy-tales? In Life as in Art, I am not sure that fairy-tales occur naturally on their own; but I probably believe that they can be made. “The mind creates the abyss; the heart crosses it.” — Nisargadatta Maharaj. “Sometimes, the mind can be an ass.” ...

On Fruit, space, and screens.
of the text, that is. My working copy of the text for The Mysterious Fruit is seven pages (double-spaced). I am now on page 5, and my goal for today is to see to all the text on this page. My goal for tomorrow (after church, of course) is page 6. This may perhaps be the only time when I refer to ...

An orchestral work 24 hours from completion, at last! (No, not the White Nights . . . .)
So far today, I have folded in Phases I & II of my notes from yesterday, and am entirely pleased with the result. This evening is for rolling up the sleeves for Phase III, which I am content to run its course into tomorrow as needed — and I think the Discreet Erasures may be completed before ...

Hallelujah! We have Sanctus.
henningmusick: Try, try again. It is with great pleasure (and perhaps a little relief) that I report that these most recent sketches for the Sanctus are exactly what was wanted. (I even scavenged material from Version 3 for Dominus Deus Sabaoth.) The act, process, experience of composition ...

Know? Can? Do.
Last night I dreamt I was putting my socks on. Or, rather, trying to put my socks on. They were Möbius socks, and I had unending difficulty determining which was the outside. There is so much great, wonderful, beautiful musical literature already in the world, and now and again someone asks, ...

The rising of the moon in Atlanta tonight.
henningmusick: Moonrise: I had written [...] several "functional" pieces for brass quintet (or brass quintet plus) for use in various services. While I enjoy the challenge of writing for a specific occasion (and appreciate the opportunity to furnish music for specific use), after a while I ...
