Studio musings, not particularly philosophical

Stream of consciousness, pretty much:

Hmm, I really like this new flute & piano piece for Nancy. It’s in Bb. I think she’ll like it too.

But, she said F major is her favorite key, and this is in Bb.

(Why do I even ask people what key is their favorite? I never write in the keys they like.)

Oh hey, I can compose a nice middle section in F major, that solves that! I like these new ideas, too. This is going to be wonderful.

But, the piece isn’t really in Bb major; it’s in Bb mixolydian. And the modulation to F just sounds forced.

This is weird, it’s really not working. I don’t like this.

(Why do I even ask people what key is their favorite? I never write in the keys they like! I should just shut up about it!!)

Oh hey, I can take this middle section, that I can’t find a good way to modulate to, and make it a second new piece for Nancy. Two movements! A suite! 

Hmm, I really like this new new flute & piano piece for Nancy. It’s in F; I think she’ll like that. 

I’ll let you know when Lauds & Evensong are complete. Did I mention that one is in F & the other is in Bb?
