Watching someone transpose thoughts from your head onto a computer screen is an eerie experience.
It’s like that part in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, when Coriarkin (the magician on the Dufflepuds’ island), asks Drinian (the first mate), to describe their voyage thus far. As Drinian talks, the whole journey appears as a detailed map on a parchment in front of them, full color and almost 3D.
That’s how I felt today, watching this extremely clever music producer who's recording this album for me type out song after song in Sibelius (a program for producing sheet music) - it was like watching the invisible music in my head appear in ink on paper as I thought it. For him, it was just all in a days’ work; for me, it was magic!
