About my compositional ventures

I get down to composing from time to time, but I do treat it seriously, as much as I can; for me writing music is the most beautiful human activity.

Becoming detached from time, experiencing an intellectual adventure in an ideal world, attempting to materialise non-material ideas, give them a context – all this is a fascinating activity.

Notating music in the traditional mode, on paper, has always been associated with a sense of loss for me. I am increasingly confident about pre-composed improvisation supported by modern technology. It makes it possible to create faster, and although it is a completely different type of creation, the first results are promising.

Fattoriale for cello solo and electronics came into being as my first piece without a score. It does not matter that it will probably have no other performer but myself.

I knew a fellow who had such a poor ear for music that, if he had only build a theory around it, he could have been famous
