Composing Between Worlds

As composers, our relationship to sound is intimate.

Explaining the process of making music can be difficult, even impossible at times. There is a magic and power there that we dare not tread and mince into words. Yet we are often asked to describe this process.

When I find other composers, musicians and artists who describe this well, I feel… well, I feel a lot. Gratitude, relief, inspiration, simplicity…

Here are two artists who are both enormous influences on my work explain this mystery of music that we have all experienced, with incredible wisdom and tenderness.

Estonian composer Arvo Pärt explains the notes of “Fur Alina.”

“I’d say that I had a need to concentrate on each sound so that every blade of grass would be as important as a flower.”

In the video below, Björk interviews Arvo Pärt. Quite amazing.

And here is Charlie Rose interviewing Björk. How she describes the “tending of music” is incredibly spot on.
