Composing is an adventure. You draw plans, you go for it, change direction, take decisions, and one day you reach a point. This point may not be the one that you wanted to reach. It could be disappointing or much more better than that you had dreamed of. But in any case, the adventure is of great interest as the goal itself.

Of course the above statement holds not only for composing music, but for every task that lasts, and therefore demands good planning: proving of mathematical theorems, writing poems, constructing a machine etc. But here, as a composer, I am going to talk about composing.

In the next posts, I will set the goal, and plan the ways to get there. I will describe my thoughts and explain my decisions. I will document every step in the composition process. I hope that I will find the time and the power for this quite demanding attempt.
