Widescreen Moleskine! I bought a few of these for China/Tibet this Fall. The extraordinary Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos was said to occasionally have held a piece of paper to the window of his place in Rio de Janeiro to trace the line of the mountains onto music paper. That would then become a theme for his next composition.
I will take these widescreen (actually reporter-notebook) moleskine books with me to make notes, but will also draw some of the “skyline”. Maybe I will write music based on themes drawn from the Tibetan mountains and maybe I can make a whole album based on the experience.
My dream would be to create a whole experience based on my notes, music and photos. That could be a huge downloadable file or torrent, a DVD, or a book of writing and photos with an enclosed CD of music.
Worked on some scales taken from Iraqi music today…
