Composing music is, for me, a combination of collaboration, painstaking effort and meditative work. There is a very similar feeling when I’m writing music or creating visual art: every tiny detail, every moment matters, while there is constant awareness of the ephemeral nature of everything when trying to repeat the same thing, the same action, but each moment is unavoidably different. This has become essential to me as I grow older - so now I prefer to avoid deliberate planning when I start composing or painting: there should be no forceful will or ego being imposed on the work. By just observing, listening and following what each piece needs, it should feel natural and organic, as if I somehow let it happen. So it gradually reveals itself as it comes to existence and, when performed live or shown in a gallery, it attains a life of its own.
