Let's All Be Composers!

A composer is a guy who goes around forcing his will on unsuspecting air molecules, often with the assistance of unsuspecting musicians. Want to be a composer? You don't even have to be able to write it down. The stuff that gets written down is only a recipe, remember? -- like the stuff in Ronnie Williams's MACHA book. If you can think design, you can execute design -- it's only a bunch of air molecules, who's gonna check up on you?

[1] Declare your intention to create a 'composition.' 
[2] Start a piece at some time. 
[3] Cause something to happen over a period of time (it doesn't matter what happens in your 'time hole' -- we have critics to tell us whether it's any good or not, so we won't worry about that part). 
[4] End the piece at some time (or keep it going, telling the audience it is a 'work in progress'). 
[5] Get a part-time job so you can continue to do stuff like this.
