    Hi Lucy,

    That sounds familiar, I always say that the music is already there, you only have to listen. It will come to you, you don’t have to ‘chase it’. But I’m often surrounded by ‘bookkeepers’ instead of ‘mathematicians’, that’s how I put it. Avant garde music and serial music are often a rational construction, a left hemisphere construction of sound that’s void of any human connection. I started composing because I could not find any that music. So I started to write music that sounded ‘like me’.
