I tried to get out my older projects and work on them yesterday. I used to do a lot of musical composition using what would probably be termed "alternative" methods of creating music. It has been nearly ten years since I have made an attempt to engage these kinds of writing tools. Much of what I developed was simply a process, a method of composing that operated much like a program. I would basically invent the process, engage it, and then perform or record the result. Many times, I didn't get to the third part- the performance. Hoping that I could gain some insight into a new way of doing things, I had planned to pull out my sheet music and devices used for the creation of composition, perform or record these pieces using new technology I have acquired in the 10+ years since writing them.
