      Oh, my goodness, John! My Bachelor’s degree was in music composition, but by the time I graduated, I was a failure, so it has taken years to come back. Electronic music in my day was a razor blade, reel to reel machine, and bland sympathizers.

      It’s far more now, and much more accessible. I took a course through Coursera, called Survey of Music Technology, taught by a professor from Georgia Institute of Technology, and I am having a huge blast!

      This is just a study, and I messed it up, but I am having a blast.

    Don’t take this the wrong. But I’ve already sat through a weeks worth of Fellini moves once in my life. So I already had my inoculation shot.

      This was just as it says, a study, and I’m a bad student. I jammed too much shit in there. I’ve got work to do…Miles to go…

    Art, and being creative is not about end product as it is the process in my mind. I thought it was good, but I seldom speak on a onesie. ‘Too much shit’, I don’t think so. A tried and true way of working -construct, destruct and reconstruct…..’miles to go’, the process, the journey -enjoy, have a blast.

    Back in the early eighties (eighty-one I think). Brian Eno and David Bryne collaborated on ‘My Life in the Bush of Ghosts’, that was a blast, as there really wasn’t anyone experimenting with arranging and composing music with found sound. Even the punkers took notice.
