My last post actually brought about a response from a (probably not so) avid reader. Ian Raisbeck, a good friend of mine over many years – and an extremely talented musician (player, conductor, composer, teacher) – got in touch regarding my compositional dilemma.

Ian suggested that sitting staring at Sibelius (or your chosen compositional programme) and typing in via the mouse can sap your creativity. His suggestion was to get a cheap keyboard and just play about with ideas So, with that in mind, a cheap midi keyboard has been ordered to plug in and play with.

I guess we’ll see what happens!
