Instrumental/Choral Composer

Episode 2: Writer's Block

"I think this may be part of how good composition happens. I think, whether or not you know it, you are kind of subconciously working your way through to a solution; and I imagine that probably translates into what we know as 'writer's block' ... so I would say that, as frustrating as it can be, I think it is--at times--a necessary part of the process."
