I thought it was interesting how he seemed to think that the process of creating music is not a result of a conscious effort on the behalf of the composer, but rather an almost uncontrollable other consciousness. This, for me, raises many questions, particularly regarding the extent to which Maslanka would credit individual creativity and skill when talking about the quality of a piece that a composer creates. I liked his take on the composing process and am curious to know if any other composers feel the same, since from how it described it, it seemed like a very unique and personal experience.
I found it interesting that he thinks up a lot of his pieces while doing everyday things like taking a shower and, what was most interesting to me, walking. Walking is an important thing, creativity wise, for Maslanka which interests me because I'm not usually thinking about anything while I walk which is fascinating that he can think of long and thoughtful things like music pieces just from walking
I think it's interesting how the composers personality has nothing to do with his music like he seems so quiet and dull and his music is very vibrant and creative.
I found it interesting that he found his inspiration and guidance by asking for internal help in some cases.
I like how he gets his ideas while doing simple every day activities. I am not usually thinking while I do these things, and he has a great mind to come up with these pieces while doing every day things like showering.
I find it interesting how he is doing simple tasks and creates amazing tunes. Additionally he is very different than his music.
That's it? Anything else?
I noticed that there seems to be quite a contrast between his music and the environment where he generates ideas for his music. He has very aggressive pieces which convey strife and conflict, but he goes on to describe calm, routine places where he develops the framework for these aggressive pieces.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
