Composition Article Posted
Below this post is one post of mind-boggling length but broken up into three very-nearly-humane lengths.
A weakness of any technologically driven art is that we get very focussed on the technology. And we forget the bigger questions. Or we’re scared to dive into them. I’ve adapted an excellent article on understanding dynamic composition and while it truely is a little long and will possibly take a couple reads to really "get it", I think this is really, really worth reading. The thinking is not primarily my own, for that I credit Raymond Aubin’s excellent article La Compostition Dynamique. I’ve translated it, and re-worked it a little, but the heart of it remains his. I hope I’ve done justice to his thinking.
I encourage you to plow through this and work to understand it – it’s thick at times, but valuable. If you decide not to read it we probably can’t be friends anymore.
Questions and interaction encouraged.
