On Writing Music and Emotional Landscape
My life is rather stable. I have nothing to complain about, and nothing is urgently pressing against my emotional walls at the moment, or has been in quite a while.
That's wonderful, but I've noticed that this has an unfortunate downside, compared to the times when this wasn't the case — my music is suffering because of it.
It's a little frustrating. There's an emotion there!
When I listen to my two albums, I am transported into a vast emotional landscape that is grand and immersive. I am moved by some of the works, to the point where they bring chills down my spine.
Now, when I write music, I'm just making pretty sounds. It's almost tragic, in comparison.
Emotional stability, with the help of some medication, has its downsides, I suppose.
