Composer’s Sketchbook | 12-25-86

This is an mp3 of the first of my audio journal microcassette recordings.

I had asked Mary for this recorder for Christmas, and sure enough, she gifted it to me and I began using it on Christmas Day.

Over the next ten years I made nearly 50 hours of journal entries including sketches for new songs I was composing on piano and guitar, creative notions, family moments, notes on my personal transition, and the development and extension of the Dramatica Theory.

Throughout the series, you can see that even though I make ongoing entries on all of these topics, my focus shifts from one to the next as life’s journey twists and turns.

This first recording includes original music sketches, some creative notions, and a few family moments.
