Well, as you've no doubt recently seen on any street in any city, digital cameras -- especially those in the form of cell phones -- are becoming ubiquitous, making our lives more documented than any prior time in history. The same is happening to our conversations: First with email, and more recently with text and instant messaging.
Original thought, an accidentally captured portion of a conversation that turns out to be a muse, or merely a subtle allegory -- discovered treasure, if you will -- of some mundane-yet-profound aspect of our lives. Even intellectual horseplay is perfectly at home here. Have a look at what's been posted so far, and you'll see what is meant by that.
For those of you who don't recognize this photograph: It's from a spectacular split-second moment during a recent, ultra-high energy rock concert. (More below...)
If you were to picture me now, at the completion of Tonanlage, I would be relaxing -- sunk deep in a plush leather chair just like the guy in the famous Maxell commercials. Tonanlage is the German word for sound system, and it's very much the image and experience of the Maxell guy that the composition evokes for me.

"Jeantes Un Kaffe" was recently optioned by National Public Radio, and will probably see use as bed music (music played under narration or other vocal work) during one of NPR's regular programs in 2007 or 2008.
