How my music evolves over time often relates to how my eyes wander over a landscape, architecture or an object. In my mind this little nothing piano snippet – which reminds me of another piece, but in this case that doesn’t matter – follows how my eyes would follow the rocky surface of a cliff.
A sketch out on paper to show me what it is I like, is what I get from it. It might translate into the next stage of a work. Or not.
