Emily Hay is a good example of how difficult situations can have their good sides. Disillusioned by the limitations classical music seemed to impose on her, she turned her attention to the experimental scene and became one of the leading figures of the "left coast" community of Los Angeles. Apart from appearing on numerous records, she is also an avid live performer and her tours have led her through most of the USA and to Europe. Oh, and she has her own radio show, too (on KXLU), informing her listeners about jazz, new electronic music and avantgarde.

"Composition" is the act or practice of creating a song, an instrumental music piece, a work with both singing and instruments, or another type of music. In many cultures, including Western classical music, the act of composing also includes the creation of music notation , such as a sheet music "score" , which is then performed by the composer or by other singers or musicians. In popular music and traditional music, the act of composing, which is typically called songwriting, may involve the creation of a basic outline of the song, called the lead sheet , which sets out the melody , lyrics and chord progression . In classical music, the composer typically orchestrates his or her own compositions, but in musical theatre and in pop music, songwriters may hire an arranger to do the orchestration. In some cases, a songwriter may not use notation at all, and instead compose the song in her mind and then play or record it from memory. In jazz and popular music, notable recordings by influential performers are given the weight that written scores play in classical music.

9. Leonardo Music Journal 4 (1994), 41–51. In Classical Music and Postmodern Knowledge Kramer cites Oliver Sacks’s work with Parkinsonian patients ( Awakenings [1973; reprinted, New York, 1990]) in a manner that suggests connections with Becker, specifically the use of music to bring patients back to themselves both physically and psychically. The music that could accomplish this had to have “rhythmic impetus” and this impetus had to be present “in a formal pattern the listener can grasp unreflectively”. Later Kramer says that “[o]nly the music that listeners identify closely with their own lives . . can do this” (20).
