Songwriter project

The singersongwriter project is underway. I’ve interviewed four artists on their compositional techniques, transcribed two of these interviews, and I am hoping to finish editing them soon into something listenable soon. I am looking for cues as to what is being control for emotional effect, in particular how these musicians define what the music is communicating in relation and comparison to the lyrics.

The standard interview focuses on a single recently composed song. We discuss the piece’s beginnings, some of the compositional decisions, the meaning of the piece, how it came to be completed and what changes with performance considerations.

Around the dancing diaries, I haven’t had much extra editing time, but I’ve got hopes for the next few weeks.
