Working Knowledge: A Composer’s Thinking 

FullSizeRender-61

Play for a while—
nothing sounds good,
this isn’t working
(despair).

Try again, play for a while—
a few moments sounds ok,
but this still isn’t working
(despair).

Realize you’re not listening to what you’re doing—
so play again, this time listening to what is, not what isn’t:

now you head in a different direction
which wasn’t what was expected,
but maybe it can work
(hope).

Is there a way out?
