I’ve been preoccupied the last few days with this idea about composing music. The idea is that, before a composer starts a piece, he or she needs to determine what constitutes a wrong note in this particular piece. When a musical idea comes, composers ought to work with it so that it sets up a musical space that favors some notes over others. This system of “right” and “wrong” notes ideally leads to an approach to consonance and dissonance within a work.
So how do you write your “wrong” notes?
