Interview with Edwin Wendler

Not one but two radio stations play classical music all day. As a music nerd, it was a fantastic environment for me to grow up in.
John Metcalf's insight:

What a great background!!  Also, reinforces that all composers are musicians. Be the best musician that you can be.  Love this quote by EW from the article: "You learn that actual composing is probably only a third of what a composer has to do while collaborating with filmmakers and running a small business. You learn about the psychological aspects of decision-making, about the importance of political correctness, about the advantage of always thinking one step ahead, about what to say and what not to say during business meetings and phone calls, etc. Probably the most important lesson I’ve learned is that a good sense of humor will help you stay positive, no matter how crazy a situation may seem. It will help you find better solutions and keep everybody, including yourself, happy."

American composer John Williams has this to say about music in the movies. “When we watch films, I don't think we separate one thing from another.
John Metcalf's insight:

Some interesting quotes from JW.  I don't think it's anything that we haven't thought about before but it might be a very good "gentle' reminder of why we do what we do.
