(no subject)

I think I figured it out.

Few people hear what I hear in music.

That's the best explanation for everything I've experienced up to now.

I don't know why this didn't occur to me previously.

Yeah, I'm spending hours each day banging out theory and feeling on a piano.

I ordered a metronome. I'm devouring jazz piano lessons.

I am developing my own technique because computers don't have enough heart in their cold, whirring bodies.

Exposition, development, recapitulation.
Point, line, area.

So it begins, again.

You ever get the feeling you've already lived this life a few times?
