  • 5 Non-Musical Books for the Craft of Composing » aaronhollowaynahum.com
    Color Joself Albers A classic example of concrete thinking in one discipline being useful as abstract inspirational material in another I was introduced to this work by fantastic young composer Edmund Finnis and immediately found it so inspirational that I wrote my first piece on the LSO Soundhub Scheme Interaction in direct response to its opening chapters Take Albers opening In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is as it physically is This fact makes color the most relative medium in art In order to use color effectively it is necessary to recognize that color deceives continually To this end the beginning is not a study of color systems Is this not equally true of pitch Of harmony Of timbre One could spend an entire doctorate thinking about how just these six lines apply to music in all its aspects and forms I also cannot resist including this absolute gem In writing a knowledge of spelling has nothing to do with an understanding of poetry 3 Finishing the Hat and Look I Made a Hat Stephen Sondheim The subtitle of this book goes some way to explaining its wonderful tongue in cheek insight The Collected Lyrics of Stephen Sondheim with attendant comments principles heresies grudges whines and anecdotes The books come in two volumes Finishing the Hat Vol 1 and Look I Made a Hat Vol 2 I own both but suggest beginning with the first It includes three of my favourite Sondheim musicals Company A Little Night Music Sweeney Todd though not the one I consider the best Sunday in the Park with George or the one I love the most Into the Woods The seriousness with which Sondheim takes his craft is obvious from the insightful chapter on Rhyme and Its Reasons the anecdotes are fascinating to any artist I had been trained by Oscar Hammerstein to think of a song as a one act play with either intensifies a moment or moves the story forward and the song by song analysis of every lyric he wrote for the stage especially the moments when he criticisizes himself were eye opening to me as a composer 4 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School Matthew Frederick I have never found a better analogy to describe the work of composing than to that of an architect People have great difficulty understanding how one creates a piece but when it is described in terms of building a building settling on your materials discovering what you will lay as the foundation creating different rooms thinking about the overall shape and structure it immediately opens up to them This is the one book I try to open every single day when I compose Here are a few of the concrete architectural ideas you might find useful Our experience of an architectural space is strongly influenced by how we arrive in it Create architectural richness through informed simplicity or an interaction of simples rather than through unnecessary busy agglomerations
