A traveling composer is a developing composer. Last week I was in Warszawa. A beautiful city full of energy and culture. Now, in the summertime this is very revealing. My mission there was to write my master thesis in Programming and Networks, and I managed to get a good amount of pages written during the day. The evenings were used to explore the city and to experience its rich diverse culture. And by the end of the week I started composing on a Gypsy Jazz / String Swing song.
