Dear composers,

Do you hear the neighbours go to the toilet?
Do you put your vacuumcleaner on like Glenn Gould did?
Do you always have sky-radio on?
Do you lock yourself in the bathroom?
Do you have a traffic-light in front of your house?
A tromboneplayer across the street?
A bicycle store downstairs?
Have you found yourself a silent room where you only hear your own bloodstream?
Are you glued on to your computer?
Did you get yourself a permanent trainticket?
Do you have your own private corner in your favourite bar?
Do you sit in the woods getting birdshit on your paper?

Please give me a short description of the sounds that normally surround you when you compose (in audio or textformat).

Awaiting your reactions in curiosity,

Mayke Nas
