Freeing music by imposing restrictions on the processes of composing is an idea I caught from a French group of writers (Oulipo) who use constraints as a means of triggering ideas and inspiration.
So last Tuesday (02/02) being both a repdigit day and the birthday of my mother, I decided to do a song based on the letters that both appear in her first name "Edeltraud" and can be played on a piano: e-d-e-a-d. The main melody is exactly played in that order, also the sequential following of the chords.
e-d-e-a-d (as I recognize while writing these words) could also mean "Edeltraud doesn't live anymore", which is true, she died a long time ago, but she's still in my heart and I miss her.
