Leave Me Alone

Seriously, back off, would you? I’m not trying to be rude, but your nose is just a little too far in my business.

What’s that? You want to know how I compose? Gee, no one’s ever asked me that before. Do you do anything besides annoy people with questions? Write anything original?

Well, then you know how I do it. I take an original idea and hear it. You see it; I hear it. That simple. Music is just the sound of a place and time. Not the noise, the essence. I find that and then replicate it on the keys.

Yes, I can play other instruments. I appreciate flutes, actually. They’re very nice to compose on and let me play around more with keys.

Are you slow? Not keys like a keyboard, musical keys, like D major. Really, don’t waste my time. I’m actually working on something now.

I’d rather not tell you what it is. It’s not even close to finished. I’ll tell you what the dissonant theme is, though. It’s a nosy reporter who’s up in my face. Please, back off and leave me alone.

Mo-om! I’ll do my homework after supper. Would you tell this woman to go away?

Oh, yeah, thanks for the interview. I hope we can do this again sometime.
