Read Together I

Every now and then you run across blog postings that complement each other nicely, by reflecting on related or similar aspects of music. Take a look at these, for example, which talk about the related processes of transcribing and copying other composers' music:
  • Kyle Gann, Trying to Remember That Kind of November, where he starts to discuss transcribing and analyzing Dennis Johnson's November, an important (and extraordinarily long) piano work from 1959.
  • Kyle's second posting on the process, Notating Dennis.
  • Daniel Wolf on the subject of what he has learned from transcribing music, Copy that. (I'd be curious about what anyone thinks of Winslow's Law, by the way.
  • And Daniel on the subject of his annual notation Reboot.
