Michael: As an actor, one has to "play dumb" to what is happening next. We have to forget the outcome. Where as a composer, I have to think about the entire piece all the time and be aware of the end at the beginning and vice versa. So, in changing hats, I switch from being a builder to an architect. So, the builder lays a brick one by one to finish the building in chronological order, where as the architect must design the cornerstone to support the steeple. That was, like, eight metaphors.
