Is it just me, or does other people's music always seem to sound better? Probably because when we write music ourselves we spend so long with it that we know it inside and out, but when we listen to other people's music it is new to our brain and we don't know what to expect. Even after multiple listens we can discover new things. This newness makes it much easier for the brain to respond emotionally than it can with the music we write ourselves . . . is this true for anybody else?
I was just thinking about film music, and it seems to me that in the improbable (but possible) event of the book I haven't finished writing being turned into a movie, though it might give me the chance to write a film score, I might get someone else to write it . . .
