Compose Your Own — Music and Software

April 23, 2010 at 10:15 am Leave a comment

Really exciting piece by Jason Freeman, Georgia Tech music professor, in the New York Times yesterday.  I think what he says goes just as well for software — so many of us use it, so few of us express ourselves with it.

These days, almost all of us consume music but few of us create it. According to a recent National Endowment for the Arts survey, only 12.6 percent of American adults play a musical instrument even once per year. The survey does not report how many of us compose music, but I suspect that percentage is even smaller.

It saddens me that so few of us make music. I believe that all of us are musically creative and have something interesting to say. I also wish that everyone could share in this experience that I find so fulfilling.
