I’ve had this dream for like, a really long time: Compose a piece that is also a palindrome.
It has been done before at least by several (mostly) 20th century classical composers. Second Viennese School, man.
NOT WHITE KEYS started as an attempt for an electro-palindrome. I think I had three minutes or so of music (the middle part was missing) when I realised that the tune sounded awful. The structure was there but the music was garbage.
After this unfortunate turn of events it was goodbye palindrome and welcome a proper tune that sounds good.
But the dream is not dead. In fact, if I’ve completed the song in it’s palindromic form, the dream would’ve been gone.
How smart of me.
