I’m just going to state a couple of things that I want, musically speaking. Just to put it all “out there,” in no particular order.
- I want to narrate the following: Coming Together, Narayana’s Cows, Are You Experienced, Of Fables, Foibles, and Fancies
- I want to do another radio show.
- I want more time to compose.
- I want to write an opera. Or three.
- I want to do a residency somewhere.
- I want to do another collaboration with an experimental non-musician.
- I want to bring more guest composers to CMU.
- I want to do a multimedia installation.
There it is. I’m making moves on all of these things, putting things into action in order to actually DO them and not just list them. I’m sharing them here simply to state them openly. These are things I want.
Directly contradict my Buddhist thoughts? Abso-smurfly. I would try to justify it somehow but I don’t want to do that. Contradictions can be fun!
