A note from me

I’d love to sit here and tell you the traditional story about how I was always into music since before I could walk or talk, but I look back now and ironically music was never something I was interested in, like some “in-joke” somebody forgot to tell me. Even though I had been encouraged to play an instrument from a young age it was just another class to me, I lacked passion.
I saw many classical concerts at school,but yet this failed to jump start anything. As from all I could interpret at the time, was these people attending enjoyed to sit totally still for an hour or more, showing very little enjoyment or enthusiasm about the music they were "apparently" enjoying until the end.
Im not a person who generally communicates emotion well in everyday situations and perhaps this is what prevented me from seeing the communication of content in music when I was younger.
It wasn’t until I saw my first rock concert when I was 16 when it all clicked; here was a group of people who were so moved by a performance they were willing to literally throw themselves at each other in response to the emotive content (all be-it anger) in the music. That is when I saw the potential in music as a carrier of thoughts and feeling, a way for the composer to say what s/he has to say in words perhaps s/he never could, and for people to connect with each other over these meanings; hidden or otherwise.
Everybody has a turning point like a ball rolling down a snowy hill, increasing I size ad infinitum. I started to compose, to enjoy performing (joined several orchestras/choirs), formed a rock band with my friends anything I could do to start exploring this new world as fast as i could to make up for all the time I had wasted
Turning to now, I guess I could say that the compositions I write and how I approach my compositions reflects how I got into music. Being obsessed with hearing how people “react to my work” and always trying to distort the relationships between the people playing/the audience/ and even myself. Because no matter how much meaning I may place in a work, people will always see what they want to see.
That is why I write
