This blog is over a week old now, and it’s just occurred to me today that I haven’t properly introduced myself.
I’m Jennie Gottschalk. On a good day I think of myself as a composer. Much of the music I write could be called experimental, but not all of it. Currently I’m based in the Boston area, but I was a student at Northwestern University in Chicago for five years, where I received my Doctor of Music (DM) in composition this past June.
There are two questions I thought I would try to answer here: What drew me to experimental music? and What drove me to start up this blog? But then I looked at the clock and realized the U.S. presidential debate is on in 10 minutes…
Another day, then. Possibly tomorrow.
