... Renewable Music had its fifth anniversary on the 15th of December. If you haven't yet, please check out the two anthology projects (A Winter Album with new works for piano by 15 composers and Melodica! with works for that instrument by 13 composers); if you happen to be a composer yourself, please consider contributing to the up-coming and long-awaited A Spring Album of percussion music.
This experiment in composerly blogging, originally just making public the sorts of notes I habitually write to myself in manuscript margins and on cocktail napkins and the backs of envelopes, has covered some interesting territory, including a month of writing a new whole piece each day and assorted forms of cogitation, agitation, and even experimentation with the blog as literary/critical form. Thanks for reading, (cor)responding and — if you care to stick around — expect more of the same!
