MusicThoughts

a quiet place to think about music

Things are always least interesting when they're most clear, in a way, when everybody understands what's going on.

I suppose the quality I've always liked in music is the sense of being baffled... "God, I like this, but I don't know why!"

I suppose one of the reasons one becomes a composer is that you want to recreate that thrill for yourself. You want to do something that makes you say "God, where did that come from?"
