I am in a relatively unenviable position when it comes to my art. See, I really do take composition as
|Sure -- all the time inthe world.|
This means I have to try to be Gershwin in my spare time. But he got to be Gershwin full-time. Any chump can do that.
Me? I compose amidst dog barks, kids arguing and taking baths across the hall and people knocking on the door. I have to compose like this. I have to design and record complex harmonic structures and tonal resolutions with a wet-bearded dog head in my lap.
