New Web Site: Composition Insights

English: Insights

This post is to announce that I have started a new blog: Composition Insights (http://compositioninsights.com). If you are interested in slow improvisation – the kind of creative music making that involves ink – have a look some time. I just found that there were things to talk about that didn’t really fit either of my other blogs (horn, improvisation), so it was time to start a new one. Have a look some time; I’m always pleased to get comments, which often spark more interesting discussion.
