I feel the best critique of any music is to let it speak for itself.
I feel that the interpretation of music is always subjective and that no amount of arm-twisting will change anybody’s mind, hence my hands-off approach.
I find that composition contains enough morality, or lack thereof, that we don’t really need to do much with it; we’re working with explosive material here.
I’m not interested in a hierarchical approach to composition; I’m not interested in judgments or moralizing — I don’t feel qualified for such actions.
Rather, I’d prefer to reframe, repackage and recapitulate that which is already existing. (OK...Johannes Kreidler makes this point, Darmstadt, 2012)
In that way, my writing is able to surprise me constantly, for I often write works I don’t agree with.
