Back to 3 minutes.  I’ve been writing hard, and am reasonably happy.  Possibly because I haven’t finished and haven’t had to make any decisions about orchestration though…

Positive: my recent John Adams-related epiphany.  Negative: my lovely computer which never crashes or gives me any problems, has crashed and is giving me problems.  No files have disappeared, I just can’t access them.  That means I can’t use my notation software to write my piece with.  So, I am being forced to be the musician I used to be.  I was trained to write music using manuscript paper, a piano, and my head.  So I am rediscovering what you see when you are not looking at a computer screen.
