What If! This is the question I always asked myself: what if I tried this? What if I attempted that? I’m not a jobbing composer; there has to be a genuine new idea to push me on and, hopefully, develop a compositional skill.

The Art master at Wath: “Look hard before you draw and keep looking”. The Music master at Normanton: “Listen before you write and keep listening”.

A penny dropped: to write my music: what if I would both look, and listen. What might that involve? Well this:

Le Corbusier modulor - Fibonacci series of the human body
