The Composition Project
This project is a study in the process of music composition. I interviewed six productive composers on their writing processes and learned about their habits, challenges and advice as related to writing music. I then took their ideas and applied them to my own writing and journaled every day about my experience. All of the music I wrote was consciously inspired by these suggestions. I also made a point to share my personal journey in writing music. I wanted to emphasize that the work it takes to become a more creative individual can only by done with a sense of self-knowledge.
