* "Be Yourself, no matter what they say...."

Bits and Pieces, visible and invisible, come into play, snips of lyrics, melodies, hums, dreams, and more are here.

How do musicians stitch together sound bytes?  What does sound look like?  Painted Sound, Digital Sound?  "Behind the Seams" of a song or symphony, how can it happen?

** "When I write music or conduct a symphony I see pictures, landscapes, scenes.  I basically write and play from pictures."

Musical DNA:
"I know that song, I've heard it before!"  Instant Recognition connects pathways into past, present, and future.  "Are you playing with time?"  I can hear the zither tones of ****The Third Man Theme by Anton Karas.  I'd know it anywhere!  I feel the DNA of the deep soul through music.

Is creativity or ways of thinking a genetic trend?  "I come from a family of (name your creative traits)."  How much does nurturing play a role?  My mom and dad encouraged reading, writing, and drawing from an early age.  Luckily, TV came into being!  Radio was already here. 

"Good Teachers!"

William Blake, poet, painter, engraver, author is coming into view:
+ "On windy days and moonless nights,
Blake wears a coat of shifting lights.
The tailor now has grown so clever
He stitches light and dark together...."

and so it is also with personal journeys, stitching together the painted, written, woven, spoken, crafted, and musical fabrics of our individual emotional soundtracks and musical landscape creations.

Musical Architecture:  takes many forms from analogue to digital, structures of sound, color and light, real and imagined, come into luminous physical and non-physical realites.
