In the past several years, I have been conducting lectures on a number of compositional topics at Yale, Pace University, University of Chicago, UCLA, University of Miami, North Texas State University, and Cal State Northridge. ("Alternative Music Tablature Design"; "Dystopian Music; Tactile and Object Oriented Composition"; ""Qualitative Perspectivisation and Syntactic Nomenclature: New Words, New Ecosystems in Notational Systems").
The subject of compositional mapping with a specific focus on strategic and tactical planning of a new project is a prime discussion point. Ironically, I do believe that are lessons to be found in business fundamentals that can assist us in a systematic methodology which can help stimulate the creative process.
I am posting some pictures from my sketchbooks which draw from the origins of my work. It's a gallery of photos.
