Shame (Single)

by Kyle Preston



I find it interesting how different time periods seem to have their arguments about what ‘real’ composers do. According to Aaron Copeland, a myth exists that writing your music at the piano is shameful. And that one should be able to write music out in a field somewhere just like Beethoven. Stravinsky counters this in his autobiography by suggesting to write music from the piano because the composer should always be in contact with La Matière Sonore, the 'sound material’.

Could not agree more. Copeland goes on to say “The method is unimportant. It is the result that counts”. With that in mind, I started working on a piece at the piano and developed a simple theme I really like.
