I hear sounds in dreams… textures, ambient, and sometimes melodies. Sometimes the melodies are not notes, so I can't write them down. I write music that comes before, or goes in between, or goes after—prelude, interlude, coda. I like the idea of a melody that can go on forever, impossible to memorize, but easy to recognize—a formula (see Star Codex).
I like cute sounds, mysterious sounds, music boxes, bells, resonance, voix blanche, breathing sounds, pure sounds (acoustically speaking), soft noise. Not really into academic music, but I studied composition in Paris for 10 years, so I can write scores.
The sounds of the world are inseparable from the world. The acoustic domain is its perceptible surface. The form of this is an interlude, of continuous & transient quality.
