I have been largely at work with MUSE 5.0 and my own compositions in the Music Landscapes series. It is largely about organising the data base in a clever way. The results so far has forced me to rethink quite a bit about my work flow and my processes. A very good thing in other

I had a terrific Christmas and New Years Eve and I hope you did too. No snow whatsoever but a little bit of winter anyway. 2 on-line concerts and I must say it was a pleasant surprise watching and listening. First one was the Budapest Festival Orchestra with Fischer Ivan. One of the top 10
