I’ve become increasingly aware of compositions that I never finish, don’t share or upload, aren’t performed or just get left behind with a loss of interest, purpose or intent to develop, shape and hone into something.
For me, the most important part of creating music is the process, the composing not the end product.
With this in mind I’m beginning a new series/collection of music called musicbits with the purpose of sharing, discussing and listening to unfinished pieces, short introductions, unsure middle bits and interesting snippets – those sound combinations or tunes that never made it into something deemed complete or useful. Perhaps this may encourage me to finish one of them, or identify interesting bits that could be adapted or brought forward in current/future work. Composer crumbs are so easy to forget, neglect and waste that revisiting and polishing these musicbits is enjoyable and insightful.
