Well, as I am typing, I am also listening to Electric Eclair (by me). I am wondering how much other composers listen to their own music, once it is finished? I find that I frequently listen to mine for an hour or more at a time. I used to to listen for ways to improve or revise, but now I listen to it because I like it. Sounds like a big ego, but I guess if I don't like it, no one else will. Actually, the more I like what I have done the more likely I am to begin the next. The music puts me in a good frame of mind, and so I frequently listen to get my self in the mood to work on new music.
I am interested in other composers habits and feelings regarding this.
